The school summer holidays are set to see
the UK basking in glorious sunshine once
again, but just in case they don’t, The Ark team has
devised an all-weather multi-activity summer camp
suitable for children between 5 and 12 years old.
With an emphasis on enjoyment and team
building, The Ark activity camp will not only
increase your child’s confidence, but also their
overall fitness, coordination and balance.
The Ark is committed to getting children more active,
and what better way to have fun inside and outside
this summer than with Tux and his friends?
With more than 40 activities throughout the
course of the week, including football, ice-skating,
street dance, cheerleading, basketball, cricket and
dodgeball, there is plenty of opportunity for children
to have fun and be active. Our arts and crafts sessions
will bring out their artistic side – who knows, there could
be a budding Hockney or Hirst lurking within?
The Team
Our fully qualified activities team is committed to
delivering a memorable experience for every child.
Whilst the emphasis is on fun, your child’s safety and
well-being are paramount and first aiders are available
at all times. Each member of the team
is Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) checked.
What to bring?
Indoor/outdoor shoes/trainers
Weather-specific clothes and sun/rain hat
Water bottle and sun cream
Lunch (lunch boxes are available to pre-order from The Ark
for £3.50 each before camp starts).
What to leave at home?
Mobile phones/tablets (unless pre-arranged with The Ark).
Arrivals and departures Upon arrival, your child must be
accompanied to the main reception (soft play) and you
must sign them in. Please ensure that your child arrives at
least ten minutes before the camp session is due to start.
The team are unable to begin the day’s activities until all
children have arrived and are signed in.
Who can collect my child after the camp session
has finished? When the session has finished our staff can
only release children to the parent or carer who signed
them in. If on any day a different adult is to collect your
child, please notify reception upon arrival. The person
collecting the child will be required to bring photographic
proof of identity e.g. their passport or driving licence.
What happens if I need to cancel or my child is ill?
If your child is ill and you provide us with a doctor’s note
at least 48 hours before the start of the booking, we will
give you a credit note for the amount you paid for the
booking. If you want to cancel a booking for any reason
other than illness and you give us notice at least seven
days before the start of the booking, we will give you a
credit note for the amount you paid for the booking, less
an administration charge of £10.00. If you give us less
than seven days’ notice of cancellation, no credit note will
be issued and you will lose the booking. Any rescheduled
booking is subject to availability. The Ark camp operate a
strict ‘No Refund’ policy.
