Booking Terms and Conditions

If you do need to amend your booking (change day) then we will require a minimum 72 hours’ notice. We will not be able to accommodate all requests due to the running capacity of our camps, so please ensure at the time of booking that your booking meets your requirements. Where we do not have the ability to change bookings, no refunds will be offered.
Bookings will only be classed as confirmed once we have received a completed registration form for your child.
Where your child has a contagious disease (such as chickenpox, measles etc); we request that children do not attend camp until all pox are crusted over (as per NHS guidelines on infectious periods of Chickenpox).
If you are running late, then please call 0161 207 7000 to inform staff of your estimated collection time.
What will children need to bring?
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.
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
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.
