What about COVID?

What are we doing?

Before you come on camp, we will:

  • Have fully Risk assessed every aspect of camp and gained the “Good to Go” standard from the tourist organisations of Great Britain and Northern Ireland
  • Test all our team on the day camp starts
  • Test all non-regular team members before allowing them on site
  • Have increased our cleaning routines of all areas especially high touch points
  • Have CO2 monitors in key rooms to ensure adequate ventilation as well as a mobile CO2 monitor with a regular schedule of checks
  • Have hand sanitiser and tissues available in all rooms and have increased frequency of handwashing for everyone on site

While camps are running, we will:

  • Have increased our cleaning routines of all areas especially high touch points
  • Have hand sanitiser and tissues available in all rooms and increasing frequency of handwashing for everyone on site
  • Ask all visitors to sanitise their hands before coming on site
  • Use regular CO2 checks to determine correct ventilation of all rooms
  • Have contingency plans in place for the event of someone showing symptoms during camp (camper or team)
  • Operate a modified programme to run as much of camp outdoors as possible

Questions to ask yourself before coming on camp

  1. Have you felt unwell in the last few days? Yes/ No
  2. Have you had a recent new continuous cough? Yes/ No
  3. As far as you know, do you have a high temperature? Yes/ No
  4. Has your sense of taste and smell changed recently? Yes/ No
  5. Do you think that you are incubating the COVID virus? Yes / No

If you have answered “Yes” to any of these questions we recommend that you do not come on camp and contact us regarding a full refund or transfer of your child’s camp to a later date.

Symptoms during camp?

In the event of a camper showing signs of COVID-19 whilst on camp, in accordance with guidance from the government and the National Youth Agency:

  • The camper will be asked to isolate immediately.
  • After consultation with the camper’s parents/carers, we will ask the camper to do a lateral flow test.
  • If the lateral flow test confirms COVID, the parents/carers of the camper will be asked to come and collect their campers and take them home as soon as possible.
