At United Education we are keeping all of our fingers crossed that our programmes will be able to go ahead in line with all of the most up to date government guidance. We are working hard to make sure we are running safely all year round.
We’ve added a lot of changes to United Education to make sure our explorers are safe during their time with us. Our programmes are about being adventurous, wild and having fun with friends and we are excited to be able to provide this at a time when our explorers may need it the most.
Supporting key worker families
In response to the coronavirus outbreak, we’ve adapted our programmes to create an Active Childcare option for key worker families. We’re working with agencies, such as the NHS and emergency services, and our venue partners, to create safe and active childcare options for parents who need longer hours and more flexibility.
At United Adventure Camps we are continually monitoring the evolving situation regarding COVID-19 in the UK. We want to reassure you that United Education internal risk assessments are ongoing and include monitoring the guidance of Public Health England (PHE) and the NHS. Our priority will remain the welfare of our campers, staff team and the wider community. We are therefore taking the necessary precautions and putting in place some additional measures to ensure the safe running of our camps.
- Continuing, as always, to follow stringent hygiene practices on all of our camps. To assist us with this we encourage you to ensure your child is aware of the importance of this and the basic practices of the ‘catch it, bin it, kill it’ campaign.
- Following PHE guidance to ensure that any staff, parents and campers who have travelled to affected regions and/or have been exposed to the virus do not attend camp.
- Increasing our staff training around health and hygiene practices and our internal policy regarding COVID-19. We are also supplying each camp with increased amounts of hand wash, hand sanitiser, and tissues.
- Working closely with our host venues to ensure a strict handover process surrounding the cleanliness of the venue.
- In the run-up to camp, we ask that if you have travelled to any affected regions or if have been exposed to the virus to please contact us immediately to discuss your booking. In the event that we are forced to close due to the Coronavirus outbreak, we will inform all parents immediately by email with as much notice as possible. In the event of a cancellation of our programmes beyond our control, we reserve the right to review and amend our cancellation policy.
Do you check temperatures on arrival?
Yes, we do. All temperatures will be checked upon arrival at all of our sites (with a temperature gun). Any children with a temperature over 37.5°C will unfortunately not be allowed to attend camp. You can check temperatures at home before coming to camp as long as you are able to provide proof.
What happens if a child is showing symptoms of Covid-19 whilst attending camp?
Our staff have had extensive training in identifying symptoms of Covid-19 and will isolate the child from other children on site and call their parents for collection. For guidance around symptoms of Covid-19 please refer to government advice.
How will the children be grouped on camp?
At United Adventure Camps, children will be grouped (bubbled) depending on the group they are booked into. This will mean that whenever your child is at camp with us they will be in the same group and interact with the same explorers and staff members.
Do staff and children have to wear masks on-site?
No, staff and children are not required to wear masks on our sites.
