Who are the coaches?

What does my child need to wear for a holiday camp? 


All of our holiday camps have indoor and outdoor facilities but we still need your child to be prepared for any weather conditions. Where the weather is particularly cold or wet, children will remain indoors. We advise your children to wear:

  • Shorts/tracksuit bottoms 

  • A t-shirt and jumper/jacket 

  • A coat for outdoor activities

  • Suitable footwear such as trainers are important 

  • Football boots can be worn if we are on the 3G pitch or field 

  • If the weather is particularly hot, please ensure sun cream is applied and a hat can be worn. Ideally, all day sun protection should be applied so that there is less need to reapply during the course of the day.

Do I need to supply food/drink for my child on a holiday camp? 


Yes, for each day your child is on camp, they will need the following: 

  • A named water bottle 

  • A packed lunch  

  • A snack for break time

Drinking water is available at all of our locations to refill. 

What time do I need to drop off and pick up my child? 


It is important that you are prompt with dropping off and collecting your child. We hire facilities for 8am - 5pm daily, therefore our insurance only covers these time periods. Please drop your child at 8am and collect them at or just before 5pm each day. Thank you. 

Where do I drop off and pick up my child? 


There will be a coach in the car park areas of all the venues to direct you to the correct registration point.
