Covid Policy

Keeping everyone safe at Camp Beaumont

On the 19th July the government moved to stage 4 of its roadmap to recovery, the end of lockdown and the easing of restrictions that the country has been under for the past year. We are delighted that we can continue to play our part in supporting parents with their childcare needs as the country gets back to work

We were one of the only major holiday camp operators to open our camps in 2020 and welcomed over 8,000 young campers, who enjoyed a safe, rewarding and inspirational camp experiences. We are now taking this valuable learning and will be operating an unrivalled programme throughout 2021.

The safety and welfare of everyone at Camp Beaumont remains our number one priority at all times and despite the government’s relaxation of COVID restrictions we will be ensuring that the safety of everyone at camp remains at the forefront of everything we do. Our friendly and skilled teams will ensure every camp is packed with lots of laughs and fun activities, whilst effectively administering the most up-to-date health and safety guidelines.

Our Camps

It is the responsibility of everyone to ensure that they do not attend camp if they have and/or are displaying any symptoms of COVID-19. Equally, no one should attend camp if they have been contacted by NHS Track and Trace and told to self-isolate after a close contact.

We have a COVID Safety Lead on each camp to oversee our COVID Safety Policy and ensure it is implemented strictly to keep everyone safe.

Camp capacities

We have implemented camp capacities at each Camp Beaumont location dependant on camp size and access to facilities. We will make use of our excellent outdoor facilities wherever possible but have ensured that there is plenty of space so everyone can experience our fantastic activities in a safe environment.

Hygiene & Enhanced Cleaning Measures

Every young guest and team member will be asked to wash their hands thoroughly between each activity. Soap will be readily available in handwashing areas. Hand sanitiser will be accessible at each sign-in desk for every child to use when they enter and leave Camp. In addition, numerous hand sanitiser stations will be accessible at locations throughout each of our camps.

Enhanced cleaning regimes implemented by our teams and host school partners to include high touch areas will be maintained.

Children & Parents

It is the responsibility of everyone to ensure that they do not attend camp if they have and/or are displaying any symptoms of COVID-19. Equally, no one should attend camp if they have been contacted by NHS Track and Trace and told to self-isolate after a close contact.

Masks & PPE

We do not require the children to wear masks and only require our parents to do so if you enter an indoor area of camp including the sign in and out areas unless exempt.

Group sizes of up to 24 children

We are operating groups of up to 24 children and 3 Group Leaders whilst maintaining our ratios of 1:8 (3-7yrs old) and 1:12 (over 8’s). Our Group Leaders will remain with the same group for the whole week where possible and will minimise mixing of children from different groups.

Programme

Our ‘Action Extra’ programme is back! We have lots of exciting upgrades available to your child’s camp experience. Weather permitting we will be spending as much time in the outdoor environment as possible and making use of our fantastic host schools grounds.

Swimming

Swimming is also returning this summer's programme, we are really excited to be re-introducing swimming to the programme at selected camps. As with all of our activities we are ensuring that the most robust safety procedures are in place as we get back on poolside.

Contactless sign in and sign out

We will be operating a contactless free Sign In/Out procedure, our Head Group Leaders will sign your children in on your behalf but we will need to know who is collecting and for them to bring photographic ID.

Our Sign In/Out areas will be strictly managed to ensure they don’t become too busy but please note it may take slightly longer to sign in than normal.

Our Teams

It is the responsibility of all employees that they do not attend camp if they have and/or are displaying any symptoms of COVID-19. Equally, no one should attend camp if they have been contacted by NHS Track and Trace and told to self-isolate after a close contact.

COVID Safety Lead

We have a COVID Safety Lead on each camp to oversee our COVID Safety Policy and ensure it is strictly implemented to keep everyone safe. This will be a designated member of our onsite management team and they will make themselves available to answer any questions or concerns that you may have.

COVID Testing & Health Surveys

Our teams will take a COVID Lateral Flow Test (LFT) daily giving us the very earliest indication if any member of our team has possibly contracted COVID-19. All test results will be logged and recorded in line with Government requirements.

Each member of the team will also be required to complete a daily health survey which indicates whether anyone has symptoms of COVID-19 even if their LFT result is negative.

Masks & PPE

Our teams will be issued with PPE to enable them to carry out their roles safely. When you arrive at camp our teams in the Sign In/Out areas will all be wearing full face clear visor masks to allow for that friendly interaction that you come to expect from the Camp Beaumont Team.

Throughout the day all of our wear face masks in indoor communal areas -but not when delivering the activities to the children – and where they are unable to socially distance from other members of the team.

For more close-contact care, including first aid, our teams have access to disposable aprons, masks and gloves.
