Swim wear, swim cap and towel - ages 5+
Packed lunch – full day children
Snacks for multiple breaks throughout the day
Plenty of water
Trainers, rain jacket (outdoor venue), suitable clothing for indoor and outdoor play, suitable footwear for both indoor and outdoor play

Meet our team and a message from our founder
Founder and Manging Director
Thank you so much for showing an interest in our camps - it means a lot! My belief is that you should know who you are leaving in charge of looking after and entertaining your Superstar, so why not get to know us all better by clicking the button below. We are all Super excited to see you at our next camp!
Who runs the swimming activities?
We use an outside provider that we have worked with for a long time, Dip'nDive Swimschool. Denis and his team are awesome teachers!
How do the swimming activities work?
Children each day upon registration are asked if they would like to go swimming. We then arrange them into groups based on their ability (dont't worry, we ask you how well they can swim) where the activites are planned according to ability and age.
What if my Superstar does not want to swim?
Not to worry! During swimming time, there is more than one activity going. This may be a football tournament and even bouncy castle time.
A strict policy to help us all
We operate a very strict collection policy.
Hold ups do of course happen and we are mindful of this, however the following rules apply.
All children must be picked up by the time they are booked for e.g. 12.15pm for tots day, 4pm for normal day and 5.30pm for extended day.
4PM COLLECTION If your child is booked in with us until 4pm, please arrive promptly to collect them. Should you be any later than 10 minutes to collect, you will be charged a late pick up fee of £5 for up to every 15 minutes you are late. You do of course have the option if you know you are going to be late to extend to 5.30pm collection on the day for £6. We can do this for you at our end if you let us know.
5.30PM COLLECTION If your child is booked in with us until 5.30pm, please arrive promptly to collect them. Should you be any later than 5.30 to collect, you will be charged a late pick up fee of £20 for up to every 15 minutes you are late. This is to cover the cost of our staff members staying with your child and any additional venue hire costs we incur. For example if you arrive at 5.45pm you would be charged £20, if you are later than this up to it would be £40.
Please Note: If you have not colleced your child by 6pm and we canot get hold of you or any emergency contacts you have provided, we will call social services and take their advice.
We reserve the right to refuse future bookings from parents who continually pick up late or if they fail to make the payment of the charge.
OFSTED and Childcare Vouchers
Are you OFSTED registered?
Yes we are! We are registered on the voluntary register! Yipee 🎉
What are your age range rulings?
As we are on the voluntary register, we are only allowed to have our SuperTots with us for the morning 9.15-12.15pm. Ages 5+ are allowed to do full days and extended days as well as half days 😋
What are your leader to children ratios?
Across the board at our camps, we work to a 1:10 ratio, with our staff being split to necessary age groups accordingly. We will also have a spare leader as well as this. So if there are 40 children at our camp at any given time, we will always have a minimum of 5 leaders 👍
Do you accept childcare vouchers as a method of payment?
Yes we do indeed! You can find all of our voucher numbers on our bookings page (hit the button below). Can't see your provider on there? Just let us know and we will get that added for you 😉
Payments and Cancellations
Things can change, that's why we are here to help 💙
We offer a 10% sibling discount on your 2nd and subsequent child bookings which is automatically applied at the checkout
No bookings are secure without payment and failure to make payment upon booking will result in your booking being automatically cancelled within 2 working days
If using childcare vouchers as a method of payment, you must send us an email with a screenshot of your payment to firstname.lastname@example.org. Failing to do so could lead to your booking being cancelled within the two working day booking window.
Cancellations and Changes to bookings
You are able to change your booking 14 days prior to our camp start date free of charge, subject to availability. Any changes after this date are subject to availability and if we are able to change for you, this will incur a £10 amendment fee which must be made upon request. We are unable to make any changes with 5 days or less notice.
We are unable to issue refunds, credit or day swaps for any missed days unless in the event of an injury or illness. If your Superstar is unable to attend due to illness or injury, you must provide us with a doctors letter in order for us to process a credit note for you for a future camp.
Should you pay via childcare vouchers and wish to swap your days or weeks, we will hold this as credit for you and apply it to your next booking with us.
