Where do I drop off /pick up my child at a camp?

Look out for the Activate Camps banner, and also for our staff who will make it very clear where the registration point is at every venue. Drop off and pick up will be at this point every day.

What time should I drop off /pick up my child at a camp?

Our activity hours are 9.30am to 4.30pm. The extra hours club runs from 8.30am to 5.30pm for a small additional charge of £7 per day. We also have hours of 8.00am to 6.00pm at some selected venues for £10 extra per day. Please ensure that you book this prior to each day by calling us on 0121 227 4385. 

What should my child bring?

Your child is welcome to bring his or her own sports and activity equipment if they have a favourite hockey stick/cricket bat for example. However we will provide all necessary equipment for all the sports and activities your child will take part in. At a lot of camps, swimming is an option, and we will let you know through our pre-camp email, or on the first day of camp, which day your child needs to bring their kit.

On some camps (Hockey/Lacrosse), children are required to bring and use personal protective equipment such as gumshield or shin pads. This information will be included within your pre-camp email.

Will you provide lunch for my child?

No, please provide your child with a packed lunch and a refillable drinks bottle at all venues.

What should my child wear?

Every child should wear appropriate clothing for outdoor activities, tracksuits with shorts if the weather is good, and ideally, every child should have 2 pairs of footwear, one for inside and one for outside if the weather is bad.

Will you provide drinks and snacks?

No. We recommend parents always send children with enough food to ensure they remain fully energised for the day. We will offer "refill times" to remind children to top up their water bottles.

Will you provide sun cream?

No, we cannot apply sunscreen to all children. Please send the appropriate factor with your child and we will remind them throughout the day to apply it.

If I want to know how my child is getting on at a camp, what do I do?

You can call our office phone number at any time during camp hours to find out how your child is.

If the information you are looking for is not here then please do not hesitate to contact our team.
