Booking one of our camps couldn’t be easier:

  • Book Daycamps online
  • Call us on 01489 785228 and book over the telephone
  • Visit us in person – our reception is open Monday to Friday from 8.30am-5pm

Please note, our Daycamps are very popular, so please book early to avoid disappointment. Daycamps must be booked by midday the Thursday before the Daycamp begins during periods when full weeks must be booked.

We offer a variety of ways to pay:

  • Credit/debit card
  • Cheque ( in person) in advance
  • Cash (in person) in advance
  • Childcare vouchers – if booking online or by telephone, you must pay in full at the time of booking using a credit/debit card and send us the vouchers for the childcare element of the booking with a clear reference of which child the payment relates to. Once we receive the vouchers, we will refund the voucher value back to the card with which you paid. It can take between 10-14 working days to refund you once we have received the vouchers. Alternatively, if booking by telephone, we can make a provisional booking and ask you to send the vouchers to us with your child’s name listed on the payment.  Once the vouchers are received, your booking is confirmed and a confirmation sent.  Please note that bookings are only confirmed once payment has been received.  We accept vouchers from a variety of listed childcare providers.  Childcare vouchers will only be refunded for eligible services that have been delivered within 6 months of receipt of a customers voucher.
