What will children need to bring?
All children need to wear clothing and footwear that’s suitable for a full days sporting activity. We would recommend that jeans, sandals and flip-flops are not worn.
During the winter months, children should being a rain jacket or coat so they are able to get some fresh air through the day.
In summer children will need to come with their own bottle of sun cream, which should be labelled with their name. OCL cannot provide children with sun cream and we cannot allow them to play outside in summer if they don’t have sun protection.
Please also let us know if your child has an allergy to sun cream and what suitable alternative you have provided.
We also ask that children don’t bring iPods (or other music playing devices), tablets, mobile phones or hand held games consoles as these won’t be needed at Kids Camp.
Children will also need a packed lunch. We have two breaks during the day where children can also have snacks. Please bear in mind that due to the nature of the activities at Kids Camp, your child may eat a little more than during a regular school day.
Children should also bring a re-fillable drinks bottle. We have a water fountain on site that the children are welcome to use through the day to refill their bottle.
We run our camp based on rations of 1:10 for all our children. When we do have children at camp who require special assistance we adjust our ratios accordingly so all children receive the same level of care.
At any one time at Kids Camp, we have staff who are:
Qualified to Level 2 of the NGB applicable to their sport
Minimum of 1 fully qualified first aider
All staff are DBS checked
We aim to provide a fun and relaxed atmosphere with all our Kids Camps and promote positive behaviour from children and staff at all times.
Our behaviour policy offers guidelines as to acceptable behaviour and the course of action that will be taken if behaviour is deemed unacceptable.
Children at camp will receive certificates for participation, team work and positive behaviour.
We will aim to build relationships with individual children so we understand their likes and dislikes; and can understand any triggers for negative behaviour and try to avoid these.
Staff will make children feel welcome at all times by remembering and using names at all times.
Everyone at camp will be expected to speak respectfully and avoid excessive shouting, swearing and offensive language.
Where behaviour is deemed unacceptable, we will take the following actions:
Staff will explain to the child what they have done wrong; and how they could act in a more positive manner
If the behaviour is repeated; the child may be asked to sit out from the activity that is currently being undertaken.
Where we have persistent repetition, camp staff will inform the person collecting the child and see if there is any cause for this behaviour; or ask for cooperation to in re-enforcing positive behaviour at camp.
If there is no significant improvement then parents may be requested to collect their child for the remainder of the day. Where the behaviour poses a risk to the health and safety of staff and other children at camp, the child may be asked to not return to camp.
We are unable to administer any medication to your child whist they are at camp. We are able to store anything that the child needs, as long as they can administer their own dosage.
