Hello,
I've received this flyer about multi activity camp during school holidays in Barnes. Has anyone heard of them and would recommend? They say their camp is Ofsted registered, yet when they describe the staff they become a bit vague about training, accreditations etc. compared to other similar children camps. Would love to hear your experience about this camp.
Many thanks!

Hello!
I saw your post and that there were no responses so thought I would give you a bit more information about our camps and staff. All our venues are Ofsted registered and we accept childcare vouchers.

All of our staff are CRB checked and must complete the staff training programme including safeguarding workshops before they are selected to work on our camps. Staff receive specialist training and qualifications for activities such as rock climbing, pool lifeguarding (NPLQ) and archery (GNAS Leader). We operate with ratios of 1:6 or 1:7 (Ofsted state a minimum of 1:8) for most activities, with the younger children this does become 1:5 for some activities.

We employ a large number of teachers and trainee teachers to work at our camps and all of our Site Managers have teaching or outdoor adventures experience. All staff are Epipen trained and at each site there are a number of staff who hold Paediatric First Aid Qualifications I hope this helps! If you do need any more information please do not hesitate to get in touch.
