LATE COLLECTIONS AND EXCLUSIONS FROM CAMP

Please note; where children are collected after 6pm an automatic ‘Late’ fee of £1 per minute will be added to your account. This must be settled before the child can return to camp. Refunds will not be offered for any days missed and compensation will not be made for any other costs incurred. If we feel that a child’s behaviour is unacceptable and/or is potentially causing a safety issue for the child in question, other children and/or staff on site we have the right to ask the child to be collected immediately and authority to cancel their booking long term if necessary.
HEALTH AND SAFETY AT CAMP
The Health and safety of all children in our care is our top priority. Therefore children with certain additional needs or those that need specific support may be unable to participate in some of our activities. In these particular cases, we will always do our best to provide alternative activities and discuss options to implement the correct support if we can safely.
PROVIDING CHILD DETAILS
It is essential that when booking your child onto Mega Camps that all information for each child is accurate and up to date. This is to ensure that we have all the necessary information to safely care for all children on site. Failure to ensure information is accurate and up to date may result in your booking being cancelled with us. All newcomers to Mega Camps are required to display a copy of their child’s Birth Certificate along with any other parental responsibility documents. Without seeing these your child may not be able to attend Mega Camps. All information given will be treated in complete confidence.
CHILD SAFEGUARDING AND PROTECTION
Mega Camps always have Child Protection and Safeguarding at the forefront of our practice. Therefore as a childcare provider it is our responsibility to care for all children whilst in our care. Mega Camps staff are trained to be aware of any signs of child abuse and make referals where they feel is necessary. Mega Camps will take advice from the relevant Child Safeguarding Organisations and Local Authorities to make the best decision to protect each child.
NO NUTS POLICY
Mega Camps operate a strict NO NUTS policy.
STAFF / CHILD RATIOS
Mega Camps have a strict 1:8 ratio for children who are classified as an Early Years Child. (Ages 4 and 5). For children aged 6 to 14 years we operate a 1:15 minimum ratio.
WANT TO SEE YOUR CHILD IN ACTION?
As long as we have consent from you as a parent, we take photos of the daily highlights. These are then uploaded onto our social media pages on a regular basis for parents to see what their child is getting up to. If after making your booking this changes then you must inform the Camp Manager at registration on the day. Make sure you like our social media pages so you can view photos from future and past camps. Whilst we try our best to include all children we can’t guarantee that your child will be in the photos.
LIABILITY & LOST / DAMAGED PERSONAL PROPERTY
If any personal property is brought to Mega Camps we will not be held responsible or liable for the damage or loss of these items. We strongly recommend your child only bring essential items with them to Mega Camps each day and double check they have all of their belongings upon collection.
Mega Camps does not accept liability for personal injury or death of any person unless directly caused by the proven negligence of the company or its servants, in this event our liability insurance provides cover of up to £5 million.
MEGA ACTIVITIES AND DAILY SCHEDULE
Each season, we advertise different activities that may be offered to your child when they attend. These may need to be amended every now and then due to unforeseen circumstances. In these instances, we will always do our best to replace activities with a suitable alternative. You also have the option to move to another Mega Camps venue and/or choose an alternative date if available. This is subject to other conditions within these terms. Under no circumstances will Mega Camps offer a refund or compensation.
Mega Camps will always do our best to make sure all children have the opportunity to have a great day with us. We understand that there may be times where this may not be the outcome for you or your child.
