Why summer camps are great for working parents

School holidays can be tough for working parents and that’s where summer camps come in. With at least thirteen weeks of school holidays a year and most parents only having an allocation of around 4.5 weeks annual leave, it is likely that you need to rely on childcare providers to entertain your children for part of the summer holidays.

Summer camps are the ideal solution. You can be assured that you are leaving your children in a safe place. Safety is our number one priority – our site and activities are risk assessed, our staff go through a thorough vetting system from a lengthy application form to reference checks and a clear DBS and we have lots of policies and procedures in place for the duration of camp.

As a parent, after a long day at work during the holidays you also deserve a rest in the evenings. Let us take care of that – drop your children to us on a Sunday and we will look after them for between one and six weeks. Whilst they are with us, they will have so much fun, you don’t need to feel any guilt for ‘sending’ them to a camp. Your children will be so grateful for the opportunity, they will be counting down the days until they can return next summer. All of our campers leave with so many memories and stories which they’ll be desperate to share with you after their stay!

Every day at camp is different. With such a diverse range of activities on offer, no two days are the same. Whether your children are sporty and adventurous or creative, some would prefer an ‘all-rounder’ experience, our camps will suit them. Every afternoon our campers choose the activities they want to do. Our activities will give them the chance to step out of their comfort zone, try something new and possibly discover new talents.

Our summer camps can benefit working parents financially too. It is possible to use childcare vouchers to pay for your children to have the summer of a lifetime. Booking is a quick and simple process. Complete our online booking form along with your deposit and then there will just be the balance to pay by 1st May and two more short forms to complete before camp begins.

There are so many more benefits including learning about other cultures as our campers come from all around the world and creating friendships that will last forever! Camp gives children an opportunity to gain independence skills, a chance to problem solve without their parents there to advise or pick up the pieces.
