COVID-19 Holiday Camp Safety Procedures and Risk Assessments for holiday camps

Full risk assessments have been carried out and we will share these with you in this email. Moreover, we can confirm that our employer’s liability and public liability does cover us to operate our holiday camp next week. However, our insurers will not cover our employees or your children if they were to contract COVID-19 at our camps. Therefore, by bringing your child to our camps you are agreeing that we will not accept any liability if your child was to get COVID-19 at our camp.

I appreciate this appears heavy handed, but from a legal perspective we need to state this. Of course, we are doing everything that is within our control to make your child’s days with us as safe as possible as you will see from our camp safety procedures.

If you are uncomfortable with this, we are prepared to refund you for booking for next week. Please, email [email protected] to request a refund. We will do our utmost best to process any refund requests within seven working days.
