WHO CAN COME?
We sometimes get asked for advice on campers coming from abroad and what standard of English they would need to take part. We welcome children from other countries, but they do need to speak the language well as all activities are taught solely using English. The camps have a very busy program of music making and the tutors cannot guarantee to have the time to provide additional support to anyone who may struggle with understanding the language.
Note for parents/guardians of the youngest (8 year old) campers
Do have a look at all the information on the website to find out more about camps - hopefully it will help you work out if it is suitable for your child. We do limit the numbers of very young campers (8 year olds) and we do advise that they have a good level of personal independence and confidence.
We recommend that they have had some experience of nights away from home without parents (ideally residential trips with a school or group such as Cubs or Brownies etc), and ideally some camping experience as well. It is also useful for us to know on the application form any additional information about their musical experience and musical confidence so we can plan a good camp experience for them. If you have any specific questions about this please get in touch with us at email@example.com
HOW DO I APPLY?
Please send your form in promptly in order to increase your chance of reserving your place. All applications must be accompanied with a £25 deposit, returnable in the event that your application is not successful.
Payment must be received within 3 weeks of notification of a successful application, or else the place will be offered to someone else on a waiting list. Once a place is confirmed and accepted refunds will not normally be given.
All campers must sign a Campers Contract. This states the spirit of camp require the camper to be fully immersed in camps socially and creatively for the entire week and therefore the following items should not be brought to camp. Any such items are likely to be confiscated if found in your possession and the camper will be sent home at the Director’s discretion:
* Mobile phones/tablets*
* I-pods/CD/Mini-disc players/MP3 players
In particular the following transgressions cannot be tolerated and may result in the culprit(s) being sent home:
* Bullying, physical and verbal abuse
* Possession of alcohol
* Possession of any illegal substance
* Leaving or attempting to leave the campsite without either written permission of the Camp Director or being accompanied by a member of staff
Sending campers home is regrettable, but may have to be done for the well-being of all other campers and staff, who are entitled to a full and rewarding camps experience without any problems and disruption caused by a minority of campers.
* Please note your offer of a place at camp requires your commitment for the whole week. There is much demand for a place at camp and they are offered to each camper with the understanding that they attend the entire week.
*Refunds of fully paid places will only be made if that place can be taken up by someone on the waiting list.
