Information for Parents

Our Philosophy

We've seen thousands of children grow up at camp, some have even gone on to work as part of our team! We've seen insecurities disappear as friendships blossom, children learn independence and most of all self-confidence and a positive self-image emerging as children receive recognition and encouragement from their new camp friends.

Children always come first at Camp Beaumont. Programmes are carefully crafted with one main goal in mind, the happiness of each and every camper.

We consistently provide high quality, inspiring and exciting adventures, and can’t wait to for your child to experience a day at Camp Beaumont.

What to expect

Safety First

Acting in loco parentis, we apply the same standards of care and safety that any parent would expect, not least because many of us are parents too. Our camp managers and teams undergo extensive and industry leading training and inductions, our focus is on quality, safety and inspiring experiences for every child. All our camps undergo thorough Ofsted inspections.

All of our camps are registered with Ofsted and are inspected regularly, you can view all our reports at www.ofsted.gov.uk. Camp Beaumont is proud to have the best staff to child ratios in the industry- 1:8 for Playtime & Magic and 1:12 for Active & Teens. We offer 100% supervision to ensure a child or group of children are never left alone at any time for any reason.

Each camp has a set of dynamic risk assessments that are updated as and when the camp environment changes and we have a number of qualified paediatric first aiders at every camp to be on hand should any accidents occur but we work very hard to ensure they don’t. So while your children are having fun, you can be sure they're being well looked after.

Arrival and departure

We open at 8.30am for arrival no later than 9.15am. Collection is between 4.30pm and 5.30pm that day. Children staying until 5.30pm enjoy an extra activity session for free.

We also offer an 8am drop off for Early Risers, as well as a 6pm collection as an Extra Slice. These can each be booked for £5 per session per day.

When you arrive, follow the coloured flags to the check in area and look for the correct table/zone for your child(ren). This is indicated by the coloured table runners and signage – Playtime(3-4yrs), Magic (5-7yrs), Active (8-11yrs) & Teen’s(12+).

Our friendly team on the desk will check your child in, ensure you have completed the post booking questions, check that your child(ren) have what they need and help with any questions you may have. Once checked in they will receive a name sticker, be told where to leave their bags and get straight into a fun activity, if they remember amongst all the excitement they will say goodbye to you for the day!

Anyone who may collect your child(ren) needs to be added to the authorised adults section of your post booking questions. If the person collecting is not recognised but on the list of authorised adults then they will be asked for photographic ID before your child will be checked out.

We understand that plans change and someone new may need to come and collect, this is fine just update the authorised adults section of your post booking questions at any time and ask the person collecting to bring some photo ID.

Your child’s programme

Every child will benefit from at least six group activities each day, the programme will be varied and split in to six outcome categories; Get Active, Get Outdoors, Relax & Unwind, Get Connected, Express Yourself and Challenge Yourself.

These activity categories will ensure that whilst the children are having the time of their lives they are working on themselves, they could be being really active, learning about the outdoor environment, working on their mental health, connecting with new friends, being creative or learning a new skill.

The programme will be on display within the camps check in area. If your child’s camp has a swimming pool we recommend bringing their swim kit on their first day just in case (Magic, Active &Teens only). If you've got any questions or concerns about these activities please contact speak to your the Camp Manager.

You must also complete the Post Booking Questions in your online account ahead of arriving on your child’s first day. We'll also ask you to complete a medical form and bring this to camp on the first day. If your child has any special requirements, please send these to our Customer Experience Team at customerexperience@campbeaumont.co.uk in advance so we can make any necessary arrangements with your chosen camp if required.

Camp Checklist

What if my child doesn’t settle?

Almost every child has the time of their life at Camp Beaumont. If for some reason your child is unhappy and contacts you, please let our camp team know immediately as most issues can be instantly resolved. Customer queries relating to your child’s camp holiday can only be investigated during a child’s attendance in order for camp and the customer services experience team to establish accurate reports.

We will always endeavour to resolve any issues and to ensure your child has the very best time. Please note that queries raised after the period of attendance are much more difficult to investigate if we have not been made aware of these issues during your child’s attendance.

Speak Up Speak Out

We have trained Designated Safeguarding Leads to provide support across all our camps. All our team undergo safeguarding training before they start working with us and will cover any safeguarding updates and have their knowledge checked at the induction ahead of each camp. Our camp management team undergo even more extensive safeguarding training with our Camp Managers acting as the Onsite Safeguarding Leads.

At Camp Beaumont’s Speak Up Speak Out campaign is all about encouraging openness and expression and we are trained to listen - if children have any concerns about anyone's safety and well-being in or out of camp, our team can either help or seek an appropriate route to help them.

You’re the only camp in the area that has truly made an effort to provide a great offering during these current times. You have saved me from insanity and provided my children some normality during the summer holidays and half term.
