Q: What about security? How will you ensure my child's safety? Your child's safety is of utmost importance to us For this reason we have

Q: What if my child is ill or has an accident at camp? We always have a qualified first
aider present, who will deal with any minor accident or illness according to our policies and procedures. If
a child suffers a more serious injury or should fall ill and require hospital treatment, you will be contacted
immediately. All incidents are recorded in an incident report which will be presented to the parents on pick-up.
Q: How are
the children grouped? Can my child be in a group with their friends? Children are arranged in age-specific groups. Our ratio of adult to children is 1:10 for over 8's and 1:8 for
younger groups. Friends or siblings who are in the same age group will be grouped together. If a request is made for
differently aged children to be grouped together, the older child will be moved to the younger age group. We will try
to accommodate requests but we cannot guarantee it due to our ratio guidelines.
