A typical day at AccessEA includes Sports, Arts & Crafts, Lego, Outdoor Play and much more. Our coaches plan their sessions specifically aimed at having fun but to give children the chance to learn new skills, build confidence and make new friends. Activities will be structured in 45 minute sessions throughout the day but children will take full control and will have the opportunity to choose activities and structure their own day while at camp.
Activity Breakdown… to name a few;
Sports – Tennis, Football, Basketball, Hockey, Badminton, Athletics
Crafts – Easter Art and Crafts, Card making, Origami, Lego
Outdoor Play – Easter Hunt, Fun Games, Capture the Flag, Rounders and Nature Trails
Our team consists of Full-Time AccessEA employees or sports coaches who are currently studying a sport related degree. All of our coaches undergo enhanced disclosure checks to work safely with children so you can be assured that your children are being taught by the very best coaches and are in safe hands while at camp. Led by our centre manager Andy Utterson, the team aim to create a fun environment where children will have the confidence to try a range of new and exciting activities. Andy has been running camps for us over the past 18 years, if it happens at camp, you can be sure Andy will know about it.
Both our morning and afternoon sessions will be split with a snack break. Food is not provided on site so please come along with a packed lunch including snacks and a water bottle. With the ever changing temperatures, children should come prepared with appropriate clothing and sun lotion for hotter days.
Who’s running the camp?
Our camps are run by in-house AccessEA staff and specialist providers. All are PVG approved and have wide experience of working with children and young people. Each camp will have a Head Coach or Camp Leader, and a team to help them deliver each activity and make sure there is an appropriate ratio of adults to children.
There will also be a Camp Manager on site, looking after the general running of each camp. They are the central point of contact for any questions about camps or about your child. It might not always be possible to talk to Head Coaches, Camp Leaders and other staff as they will be in the thick of delivering activities or looking after other children.
What should my child wear?
We recommend that children come dressed in comfy clothes that you don’t mind them getting dirty! They are going to be running around all day and might be doing things like painting, so no ‘best’ outfits. Please make sure all clothing is named and that your child brings home all their bits and pieces at the end of the day. It's very difficult for us to locate lost property once children have left camp!
Does my child need to bring food and drink?
Yes. They need to bring all their snacks, plus lunch if it’s a full day camp. The specific Camp info will tell you whether they need lunch or not. Pack lots of snacks as they are going to be active all the time they are at camp! No nuts please, we need to keep anyone with allergies safe and sound.
Children should also bring a water bottle, which they can refill throughout the day.
We don’t have a fridge to keep lunches in, so we’d recommend putting your child’s lunch in a cool bag or adding in a frozen carton of drink to keep everything cool. Please remind your children to resist sharing food (even though everyone else’s lunch always looks better right?) as other children might have allergies your child doesn’t know about.
