Following the recent Covid-19 government announcement and subsequent national lockdown, our February half-term camp has been cancelled. We are currently hoping we will be allowed to run our April 2021 camps, but are awaiting further government guidance. We will update this page as soon as updated guidance is made available to us.
Our team has been working hard over the past few months to adapt our missions and develop policies and procedures that allow us to safely reopen our camps, as soon as we get the go ahead from government. We are a Covid-secure venue and have been implementing a number of additional safety measures, including mission bubbles of 8 children, social distancing outside the bubbles and outdoors-only activities. The full list of additional safety measures we're taking is available in our Covid-19 policy, per below.

Social distancing & Mission bubbles
We follow social distancing rules and the latest government guidance for schools and childcare settings (as published on 3rd November 2020).
In practice this means that we have implemented a number of key changes to the way in which our missions usually run. This includes (but is not limited to) the following:
Contact-free registration and pick-up
Staggered drop-off and pick-up
Ongoing use of hand-sanitizing gel throughout the day
Enhanced cleaning procedures throughout the day
Much smaller mission bubbles
Day-long mission bubbles for children, including break and lunchtimes
Five-day bookings only to keep children's groups consistent
Time almost exclusively spent outside (except for toilet use)
Strict social distancing measures for toilet use
Adapted mission activities to avoid contact and sharing of resources
Limited kit and limited sharing of kit (shared kit will be disinfected throughout the day)
A pause on the Friday showcase
Compulsory collection of NHS Test and Trace data, kept for 21 days
