Staff Testimonial

I worked as a group assistant for three weeks in the summer and had the most amazing experience. It was challenging, rewarding, enjoyable and informative. It was physically and mentally challenging because you are always incredibly busy, but you got home after a long day excited for the next. Being surrounded with so many lovely people as your colleagues was a big help and made the experience so much more enjoyable; friendships were created as a result. Everyone worked so well as a team and learnt from each other of a daily basis. There was never a day that I didn't learn something new. I gained unbelievable amounts of confidence during my time at camp and would recommend it to anyone who wishes to seek experience working in a child centred environment. I fully intend on re-applying for easter and summer again this year with the hope that it will be just as fun as last season.

Easter Camp Round Up!

Easter Camp Round Up!

As Easter camps have now come to a close, it’s time for a quick recap on everything that happened!

The Stats:

This Easter we achieved some incredible results, making all of that extra-special Easter effort worth it!

With 5446 individual bookings and 5099.6 child weeks we’ve had a fantastic Easter, so thank you to all of the 688 staff members who made this Easter holiday one to remember!

Ofsted Ratings:

We also have other reasons to celebrate, as all 3 of the camps visited by Ofsted over Easter were given an: “Outstanding” rating!

This is a fantastic achievement, well done to everyone involved!

Fun Times for a Good Cause:

This Easter, some our camps took part in a charity event to raise money for Children with Cancer!

Some of you (the unlucky ones) may remember it especially well, as the event involved wearing a wellie, filled with things that really shouldn’t have been inside them.

We had wellies with: jelly, whipped cream, beans, custard (you name it, it was in there).

A lot of money was raised and a lot of fun was had, thanks to all who took part!

Sadly we don’t know the exact figure raised yet, but stay tuned to our social media pages to find out the full total soon!

Around the World in 80 Ways & Futuristic Fun Day:

During the 2 Fridays we had on camp this Easter, we ran our two theme days!

It wasn’t just the kids who got involved however, our staff also dressed for the occasion to make sure everyone had a good time! There were some great costumes, from Hawaiian shirts to inflatable kangaroos, from sombreros to robot face paint, we truly had some creative staff!

Thanks to everyone for getting stuck in and making the days fun!

Why not do it all again?

We’re hoping you all had a great time this Easter!

Why not create more lifelong memories this summer for both you and the children, as we have job opportunities available at our summer camps too!
