Holiday Camp

If your child is in Year 7, or the summer when they are leaving Primary to join Secondary,  they can be a young play leader Please book as normal but let us know via email that they would like to take part in this scheme.
Unfortunately, we do not offer a part session option.
There is a 10% sibling discount for the second and subsequent siblings offered on breakfast and after school club bookings where siblings attend the same sessions at some after school clubs and breakfast clubs.  Please contact bookings@funtastickids.co.uk for more information. There is a sibling discount for the second and subsequent siblings on holiday camp bookings – please see our prices on each event for details.
On the day of the camp there will be a mobile phone number provided for you to call if you need to get hold of the camp. Our main office number is not answered at all times during the camp days so please take the camp phone number when you drop your child off at the camp.
It is important for you to give us as much information as possible before your child’s first day and record any information in the medical section.  It is a good idea to contact our director, Louise Holloway, for advice.  Louise has experience as an inclusion manager for over 20 years and can support parents and staff to ensure that the child receives the best care we can provide during their time with us. Please note, we are a mainstream holiday camp and are unable to offer individual support (1:1 support) during the camp day. We always consider the safety of all our children when considering including a child with behavioural difficulties and the potential impact on staff to child ratios. For more information, email office@funtastickids.co.uk
Only people listed as emergency contacts can collect your child.  If there is a change to this then please either call us on 07715643412 to let us know who will be collecting your child with their name and a contact phone number.  You can set up a password online when booking that your collector can use.
Breakfast is served before 9am – sessions starting at 8 or 8.30 can add breakfast Afternoon tea is served after 4.30 – this can only be added to the 8 to 6 session.
Yes – please ensure you add these to the online registration form with as much detail as possible We are a NUT FREE ZONE so there will be no nuts allowed in camp We also provide “Free From” snacks as well as other snacks and can cater for special dietary requirements if we are informed in advance
CAMPS – We provide a Creative and a Sports Timetable for each of our camps.  Children can choose what they want to do on the day and throughout the day so no need to choose in advance.
We don’t separate the children into different age groups. However, we have a VIP club for our Early Years children where they are looked after by key adults and a Young Playleader scheme where the older children (Year 7 and above) are encouraged to take some responsibility. For some sports separating the younger children from the older ones may be required but is not typical.
We can not refund for illness (or swap for another date).  We would need 48 hours notice to cancel and refund. Please let us know, however, if your child will not be attending by calling 07715643412
We only provide snacks and “No Added Sugar” squash or water throughout the day. Please bring a PACKED LUNCH and water bottle for your child. We are a NUT FREE ZONE so NO NUTS OR NUT PRODUCTS are allowed in lunch boxes please (e.g. Peanut butter, Nutella, Cereal bars with nuts etc)

You need to book the full 8 to 6 session and drop off and collect between those times. We can no longer provide a booking for 9.30 start to 6pm finish. If you need to extend your finish time on the day this will be subject to staff availability and will be charged to an 8 til 6pm day price.
Our staff are often staff with school, Early Years or childcare experience.  Our after school club supervisors and holiday camp supervisors have at least a level 2 or level 3 relevant qualification or are trainee teachers.  We also have a number of qualified teachers working for us during the school holidays.

Yes. We register all our Clubs with Ofsted. We follow Ofsted regulations and guidelines to offer the highest standard of care possible.  These regulations help raise the quality of care and ensure the safety and wellbeing of children.
We have a strict 1: 10 ratio of staff to children
Layers are a good idea so you can remove or put on clothes depending on our changing weather. Comfortable clothes and shoes for running around in. Clothes that are not precious – they can get dirty when outside or messy when inside!  A painting apron for messy art is a good idea or an old shirt! Bring a change of clothes if you might forget to visit the toilet when taking part in all our exciting activities.
A Packed Lunch with plenty of snacks for break times:
  • A water bottle
  • Any medication in a named container
  • Waterproof clothes for outside play
  • Medication form if this is needed and has not already been completed.
