STAGE OR SPORTS, COVID-19 SAFE HOLIDAY CAMPS

OUR NEW COVID-19 SECURE SCHOOL HOLIDAY CLUBS FOR SUMMER 2020

WE ARE NOW STAGE OR SPORTS HOLIDAY CAMPS IN LEICESTERSHIRE

Our amazing summer holiday camps are modified and improved to give your child the safest and most fun summer this year! We are perfect for children who don’t enjoy traditional summer holiday clubs due to our wide range of activities, fantastic coaches and relaxed, fun ethos!

MULTI-SPORTS

In the multi-sports camps we play lots of traditional and modern sports which are played inside and out!

STAGE

This is our holiday camp which includes performing arts, dance, gymnastics, cheerleading and much more!

We have created a 2 bubble system at our camps, much like how schools safely returned in June. Children will need to be booked onto EITHER the Sports themed camp or the Stage themed camp. Each bubble will have its own coaches and separate areas at the venue, reducing any need to mix or share equipment and spaces.  

Your children will create memorable school holiday experiences with us and we have something for everyone with our unique approach. The activities are all modified and we have full hygiene and screening procedures to reduce the risk of exposure and full social distancing measures will be in place. Further, have also removed any activities that we deem not safe, such as contact sports matches or (unfortunately) our water fights. 

RHC camps always go the extra mile, continually thinking of new games and activities for our stage and sport holiday camps to ensure that children experience lots of different activities and don’t get bored, even if they spend a 6 week summer with us! Don’f forget, our coaches are all qualified and enhanced DBS checked, we are safe and passionate about creating an awesome atmosphere. 

 

KEY DIFFERENCES TO OUR NORMAL HOLIDAY CAMPS - COVID-19 SECURE

To see the full guidance which we are following to stay COVID-19 secure during this summer, please click here

Children will wash their hands very regularly with hand sanitiser available at any point. We also ask that parents make sure children’s lunches are possible for them to open themselves to reduce delays for the child. We will also continue to teach the “catch it, kill it, bin it” approach.

Children will be asked some screening questions before entering the camp to ensure they do not have any COVID-19 symptoms. If we think your child has any COVID-19 symptoms we will not be able to allow entry and will give further advice.

We will have 2 bubbles at each venue, one for sports and one for stage activities. Please book the correct camp as the children will not be allowed to swap during the day to another camp. The bubbles will not mix, even at play time and lunch, nor will the coaches from each bubble mix.

Our aim is to support the children’s learning of good hygiene practices and to encourage children to not make contact with each other physically. Our sessions and activities will be designed to remove these risks, with distanced spacing in large spaces (outside, in the sports hall or main halls). Further, outdoors will be utilised for all activities if possible, equipment will be regularly cleaned and activities altered to reduce mixing of equipment or contact. Each bubble will have their own equipment which will not be used by the other bubble on site.

The government (DfE) has outlined the following,We know that, unlike older children and adults, early years and primary age children cannot be expected to remain 2 metres apart from each other and staff.”. However, “Where settings can keep children and young people in those small groups 2m away from each other, they should do so.”

The children do not need anything different from a normal camp;

  • A clean water bottle
  • Washable lunch bag/box (easily opened lunches only)
  • Clean comfortable footwear which can be used for physical activities
  • Clean set of spare clothes incase of accidents

All we ask of parents is to;

  • Not bring your child with any COVID-19 symptoms 
  • Make sure they have all the items listed above
  • Keep a 2m social distance during pick up and drop off
  • Follow our one way system during pick up and drop off
  • Have patience, please expect the registration in the morning to take a little longer than normal and please arrive at your designated arrival time. We will send staggered arrival times before the camp week starts.

All activity equipment will stay within the bubble during the week whilst being cleaned each day.

Arts and crafts supplies will be given as a pack to individual children and these packs will be theres for the duration of their time with us.

Every activity has been reviewed and if needed will be modified to reduce contact and mixing. We will aim to be outside as much as possible and only use large open spaces.

We will clean equipment pre and post activities, with a deep clean each day of key areas. Please also see the hygiene and handwashing notes.

This one really upsets us as it is everyones favourite event in the sun. However, to keep everyone safe this year we are unable to have these water fights. We will, however, have lots of other fun activities instead!

We want to reduce our time spent inside and will be having outdoor (hopefully) picnic lunches during the camps. We know the children love to chill out in front of a film during lunch time after an active morning, however we won’t be able to do that for now.

We will isolate the child if they develop symptoms in a secure area with a coach either keeping a 2m distance or wearing full PPE. We will then give the parent further guidance on what to do and how to be tested. 

If a child who attends the camps tests positive for COVID-19 we will be forced to follow our closure procedures and everyone within the bubble will need to self isolate for 14 days, including staff. Full guidance will be given for every parent with close help and advice from the government agencies.

DAILY SCHEDULE

Our stage OR sport holiday camps offer a schedule designed for busy and working parents. Our flexibility also allows you to only book what you need. Please note we also accept childcare vouchers.

8:15am Early Drop-Off

We start at 8:15am to help parents who either work during school holidays or just have a busy day ahead! We know how hard it is for working parents and we're here to help with our holiday clubs.

9:30am-4pm Normal Day

During this time we run the stage, multi-sport and football camps throughout the day, which means children can choose between the 3 camps at the start of each of the 4 main sessions.

5pm Late Pick-Up

As well as the early drop off, we also offer late pick up in case you cannot get to us for 4:00pm. Late pick up includes an extra hour of fun after the standard finish time, where our coaches will play games and activities until 5:00pm!

ACTIVITIES

MULTI-SPORTS HOLIDAY CAMP

Football | Basketball | Dodgeball | Cricket | Hockey | Netball | Tennis | Badminton | Volleyball | Benchball | Ninja Kids | Obstacle Courses | Captcha the Flag 

Our multi-sports holiday clubs have a wide range of activities on offer. We like to give children a taste of lots of different sports and have a great time playing them. Our non-traditional games are a huge part of the fun as well.

Please note all activities will be modified to reduce contact and keep social distancing and hygiene at the forefront of our approach. We will also spend as much time outside in the sun and fresh air as is allowed by the weather!

Finally, please make sure you select the correct camp (Either Stage OR Sports) when booking as children will not be able to swap between during the day.

PERFORMING ARTS HOLIDAY CAMP

Gymnastics | Drama | Dance | Cheerleading | Musical Theatre | Singing | Arts and Crafts 

Our stage holiday camps are designed to offer unique activities for children who may not enjoy the sports sides of the camps. Whether through sports like gymnastics or the performing arts, the focus is building confidence and having fun! Unfortunately, we will not be able to have performances for parents to keep everyone COVID-19 safe, we hope you understand.

Still Affordable Pricing

There are factors this year which are impacting our prices, all due to staying COVID-19 secure and within government guidance.

  • We have largely reduced the numbers of children able to attend our camps, following the government guidance of small bubbles.
  •  The child-coach ratio has increased to make sure each bubble runs safely and smoothly. We are well above government guidance on this.
  • Increased amounts of cleaning – we have incorporated lots more cleaning time pre/post activities and a deep clean after each day. 
  • Extra training – the staff will have extra cleaning and COVID-19 training
  • PPE – We will have all the necessary PPE on site required to be COVID-19 safe.
  • A small amount of new activity equipment for new and modified socially distanced games, this means the children can still have an awesome time playing lots of safe activities

We hope parents know our costs have only increased to make the holiday clubs very safe and maintain the same enjoyment the children would have previously and these changes are needed to be able to run the holiday clubs. Our clubs are still very competitively priced (only £3.73 per hour for a full week) and our premium child satisfaction rates are definitely worth it.
