Covid Secure Camps

Here are some of the steps we’re taking to make Deep Dish Beach Volleyball camp as safe as possible: Our Planning

  • We have reduced our daily camp numbers
  • We will ensure a maximum of 15 children per group, and will reduce mixing of these groups as much as possible
  • We have adjusted our programme to ensure COVID appropriate activity
Our Venue
  • COVID-19 Risk assessments
  • Additional signage
  • Socially distanced queuing
  • Isolation area in camp, if a participant/staff member falls ill during the day and can’t leave immediately
Our Processes
  • Confirm no symptoms or quarantine restrictions on entry
  • Extra hand washing and sanitising of equipment throughout the day
  • Minimise mixing of equipment
  • COVID-19 officer to regularly review processes

Parents Information

Please note - if relevant, Anaphylaxis, Asthma, and Seizure action plans must be sent via email to a minimum of 5 days before your booking. Dropping off

  • We cannot accept children onto camp without a completed entry form.
  • Drop off: 8:45-9:15 am
  • When you arrive at camp our staff will ask for your child’s name and your email confirmation. Please have this to hand. This can be presented on a smartphone or printed out ahead of drop-off.
  • If you were required to send in any other forms (eg. Anaphylaxis) this will be double-checked before we accept your child onto camp.
  • Our staff will check your child into camp.
Picking up
  • Collection is between 4.45-5:15pm
  • When you arrive to collect your child, our staff will once again ask to see your email booking. Staff will confirm the child’s details and check the child out of camp.
  • If someone else is collecting your child please forward the email confirmation to them.
  • The email reference is unique to each child and confirms authorisation for collecting that child
  • If someone else is collecting, our staff will check the Information form to see who you have detailed as authorised to collect your child. This adult will be asked for photo ID to confirm their identity.
  • If a child is collected late, staffing costs will be incurred by the parent/carer, at £15 per extra 15 mins
What to bring
  • A refillable drinks bottle
  • A packed lunch and snacks for the morning and afternoon breaks. Please do not bring any food containing nuts into camp.
  • Footwear- ideally a pair of flip flops/sandals
  • Sun cream, sunglasses and sun hat. Please make sure children have applied sun cream in the morning before camp. Staff will remind children to re-apply cream throughout the day. In the absence of the child’s own sun cream, staff will have a small supply of Hypoallergenic SPF50 sun cream that children will be able to use, unless you request otherwise.
  • We recommend children wear comfortable clothing suitable for sports (not their best items) and a towel for brushing sand off. Please ensure the child is dressed for the weather, as this is an outdoor camp.
  • Any medical action plans, or additional pieces of information (please make us aware a minimum of 5 days beforehand via email).
  • Any essential medication for your child.
What not to bring
  • Nuts
  • Mobile phones or electronics
  • Valuables
