Holiday Activity Days - 8-12 YEAR OLDS

Holiday Activity Days - 8-12 YEAR OLDS

Holiday Activity Days are for young people between the ages of 8 and 12 (for those age 12+ = https://longridge.cinolla.com/longridge/courses/holiday-activity-day--) who are looking to explore some adventurous activities and get a day of fresh air (no screens!). Participate in four of our adventurous activities throughout the day, with a packed lunch included. Drop off from 8.45am ready to start activities at 9am, pick up at 5pm.

The activities are varied day to day and are not confirmed until the morning of each day as we wait to see: 1. What the weather is doing, 2. If we have any repeat visitors, 3. The age range and abilities of those booked on. So best to pack them clothes for all eventualities. We run in all weathers so no matter what they will be outside and active all day! We have no indoor activities, no arts/crafts, no screens - just outdoor adventures, all day. The aim is (roughly!) one high rope activity, one land activity, and two water activities - however we cannot stress enough that this is varied for the benefit of the participants.

Participants must be able to remove all jewellery and earrings in order to participate in roped activities.

Please note; Whilst we always try our best to organize it so that friends attending together are placed in the same groups, it is not possible to guarantee this. Pairs are often possible, but any request larger than 3 will always be split across groups. Booking together on one booking makes no difference to this and does not guarantee they will be placed together. We will not and cannot discuss grouping your child with anyone else as this would break both Data and Child Protection. Emailing and calling will not change these facts, and due to repeated poor experiences we do not take grouping requests from anyone other than the young people themselves after arrival. These days are not appropriate for Birthday Parties or private groups and must not be booked as such. We appreciate your understanding in advance. 

Please be aware that these days may not be appropriate for all of those with additional needs, and young people who attend must be in mainstream school without additional support. If your young person has additional needs, please get in touch with us directly rather than booking online so that we can work together to find a day suitable for them. Most activities can be adapted for those with physical additional needs, but this does need to planned in advance so please get in touch before booking.

If you would like to book using childcare vouchers, please email all your details to reception@longridge.org.uk as sadly the childcare voucher system is too complicated for our online bookings system to manage at this time. Please do not book online as we will not be able to refund and swap to childcare vouchers. Please note that there is a £5 admin charge for childcare voucher bookings. Childcare voucher bookings need to be made well in advance, as the childcare voucher providers do not send payment immediately - it can often take up to a week (sometimes more, for certain providers) for the payment to reach us and your booking to be made. We cannot accept any last minute childcare voucher bookings for this reason, apologies.

Please ensure all information provided during the booking process is correct, particularly their date of birth and any additional/medical needs. We cannot be held responsible if you provide incorrect information that prevents us effectively caring for any participant. We have the separate courses for different age ranges for a reason, please respect this and provide the correct information needed to support our guests.
