What Will My Child Get Out Of Camp?


How many staff are on camp?

We have an extremely high ratio of staff to students, with a Welfare Co-Ordinator, who oversees the welfare and safety of the campers and who handles any pastoral issues. We also have several House Parents/Mentors, who are responsible for the day-to-day care of the campers and are the first point of contact if any camper feel as though they are upset in any way. Alongside these members of staff, all employees are trained in Child Safeguarding and many of the staff are trained in giving Paediatric First Aid. There will also be an Admissions Manager, who will be the main point of contact for families with any issues or concerns.

Our friendly and supportive staff team are available 24 hours per day to support campers.

What if my child gets homesick?

Our caring staff are there to ensure that every camper feels safe, happy and supported during their time on camp. We have over 25 years experience running school holiday summer camps and we understand that attending camp can be an unnerving experience for some children. If your child does start to become a little homesick, here are the things our staff can do to help:

  • Have regular check-ins with children to understand how they are feeling
  • Find out about the friends that they have made or the activities that they like
  • Look ahead to the fun things planned throughout the week
  • Arrange a chat with their parents to help them feel reassured
  • Continue to check-in with the child throughout the week and touch base with parents if and when needed
  • Encourage their new friends on camp to support and help

What is the accommodation like at Twyford School?

Twyford School has shared bedrooms and dorms in separate boys and girls accommodation blocks. We always room children with someone of a similar age and same gender. We will do our best to meet any specific accommodation requests (e.g. sharing a room with a friend) - contact us to discuss this. Rooms are of a high, modern standard and are cleaned on a daily basis - we will encourage the children to keep a tidy room so belongings don't get mislaid!!

Are staff available during the night?

Our friendly and supportive pastoral staff team are available 24 hours per day to support campers. We pride ourselves on offering the best possible care to children, and Summer Boarding Courses (our sister company delivering these camps) achieved British Council area of strength in ‘care of students’ and ‘safeguarding under 18s’.

Valuable Items

We recommend that children bring as few valuable items as possible as the bedrooms do not have locks on the doors. Please note that devices such as mobile phones, iPods, MP3 players or PSPs will not be allowed during activities. Should your child choose to bring any of these devices to an activity, a member of staff will take the device to the summer camp office where it will be stored in the safe until the end of the course. Personal laptops, iPads or electronic notebooks are not allowed. This is for reasons of safety and security.
