Following government guidance confirming that all schools will re-open from 8th March 2021, we are now allowed to run our Easter 2021 camps. We will be following government guidance on Covid-19 safety and social distancing and will continue to implement all measures required of Covid-19 settings.
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. 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.
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
