Safeguarding & Site Rules

Safeguarding

The Directors are in sole charge of the event and are empowered to instruct campers/visitors to leave the site without refund if any site rules are deemed to have been broken or they consider any camper/visitor to be guilty of improper conduct.

Young people under the age of 18 are at all times the responsibility of the group/youth leader with whom they are attending the event.  This means that you will need to  have all emergency contact and relevant medical information for each of the young people in your group. Leaders should ensure they have fulfilled all the necessary requirements in line with their group/ church Safeguarding Policy, including obtaining consent forms for all young people.  We’ve provided the following Example Parental Consent Form as  resource for you which you might find helpful.  However, please check with your church/ group leaders as to the specific requirements under your own church/ group Safeguarding policy. Please see the Group Leaders page for more information.

If you have ever been charged with, cautioned or convicted in relation to any criminal offence relating to children or vulnerable adults, or you are at present the subject of a criminal investigations/pending prosecution, please make this clear at your time of booking and we will need to contact you to discuss this further.

A special note on sickness..

Before heading to the event:

Please make sure everyone in your group is well enough to attend. We know it can be really disappointing to miss out but sickness can spread rapidly on a campsite so PLEASE don’t bring anyone who is poorly. *
Refunds are available but you’ll need to provide a doctor’s note to support your request.

Sickness on site:

Please make sure you wash your hands often and ESPECIALLY after using the toilet and before eating. Consider carrying a bottle of antibacterial gel in case you have a sudden craving for chips and gravy. If anyone in your group falls ill* during the event then please keep them where they are, limit their contact with others and contact the First Aid Team.

* Diarrhea and/or vomiting and/or a temperature of 38’C or higher and/or other flu‐like symptoms.
