Friends Who Are Going
Event description


You are booking onto the Wednesday the 9th August - 'Abook of birds and fishes' activity day

Its that time of year again! The annual Summer Camp is being held between the 7th-11th of August 2017. If your child is aged between 5-11 (if your child is 4 but goes to school please email me directly at as there is a different booking form) and lives within the Warrington/Widnes/Halton area please take a look at the activity days we have on offer. Please only book your child onto the activity days you think they will enjoy as some are more sports based and others more creative and perhaps not suitable or of interest to all children. This year we are asking parents to donate £2 per day per child and the entirity will be given to a local charity, please email if you can recommend a local charity.

Monday 7th August - 'On your feet' activity day. The exact activity detail is still tbc but we are hopeful that this will be a parkour/free running workshop day where children will be active and running around (outdoors hopefully) all day...expect a good nights sleep!

Tuesday 8th August - 'A handful of tiny pirates' activity day. We will spend the day creating our own pirate adventure (or adventures). Starting with puppets, we’ll make our own little pirate characters and then take them out into the Nature Reserve and mix a whole range of different activities:

  • Making tiny camps for tiny pirates
  • Looking for natural treasures
  • Drawing treasure maps inspired by the area
  • Designing and building a big pirate castle out of twigs
  • Indoors again, we’ll add treasure chests to hold our found treasures
  • print and draw and colour those treasure maps

Wednesday 9th August - 'A book of Birds and Fishes' activity day. A more wildlife and art based day –

  • printing and designing,
  • make rolled card lanterns and landscapes,
  • decorate model birds (and/or fish!) to take out exploring,
  • make animals out of found objects.

In small groups we might design mysterious wild places and let each other visit them. We’ll end the day gathering all our various ideas together into a personal pop-up book.

Thursday 10th August - 'India' activity day. Children will be taught dances from different regions of India which will enhance their knowledge of Indian art and the cultural diversity within India. Children can also learn about Indian lifestyle, food, costumes etc through our lecture demonstrations.

Friday 11th August - Summer Camp closing party. Children will take part in a morning of orienteering games around the nature reserve, perhaps some treats will be found! We will enjoy some chill out time with a short film (suitably age related) and some party food (children to bring in one party treat to share) before starting our annual water fight.


Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

The ideal age is 5-10 years old. Some of the activities maybe too young for 10+. If your child is only 4 but attends a school setting please email

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

Drop off is at 9:30am and collection is at 3:00pm. All children will need to be dropped off in the coach layby and then parents will need to park and walk over to the Education Centre each day to sign in their child/ren, this should take place no earlier than 9:20am. You will be emailed a medical form to fill in prior to the event which will need the following information-

  • Date of birth

  • Next of kin and contact number

  • Known allergies

  • Any medical info we should be aware of and details of medication

Please drive onto site (WA5 2UT) at 10mph and pull into the layby on the left hand side where a member of staff in high vis will be waiting to great your child and you will then be shown where to park. Please follow site rules such as reverse parking, following yellow walkways as adhering to these rules allows the summer camp to continue each year.

What can/can't I bring to the event?

Your child should ideally leave any expensive items at home as we do not take any responsibility for loss of items. If your child likes to take photos they could bring a cheap disposible camera with them. Games consoles are activly encouraged to remain at home! There is nothing to purchase and no vending machine so the children do not need any money other than the suggested donation. They should:

  • Wear clothes that can get mud/glue/paint on them

  • Packed lunch, snack and refillable water bottle each day in cluding the party/last day. The last day gives the opportunity for all children to bring in one item of party food that can be shared ie a bag of apples, a cake, a large packet of crisps, sausage rolls etc

  • Waterproof jacket

  • Wellies/sensible outdoor shoes

  • Any medication clearly labelled and handed into G.Davis. Children should wear suncream and insect repellent and ideally wear a sun hat and long trousers.

Where can I contact the organiser with any questions? and 01514795795/5710. In an emergency please call 07508275850.

Is my registration/ticket transferrable?

No but i appreciate that plans change so please get in touch as soon as possible if you realise that your child can no longer attend.There are limited numbers for all of the activity days and places are allocated on a first come basis, I do not hold places anymore and bookings can only be done via booking on via the Eventbrite system. This allows me to keep you informed about the dates you have booked. If your child can not attend the event that you have booked for them please let me know as soon as possible so that another child can take their place and there is always a waiting list.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

Ideally yes. You will need to supply your booking name.

What if my child breaks the rules/boundaries ?

Behaviour tends to be excellent during the summer camps. However, if any child is witnessed bullying another child they will be spoken to and the behaviour will be addressed and dealt with using behaviour management techniques similar to that used in primary schools. However, if a child continues to cause us concern after having been giving the time to rectify their behaviour I will need to call parents in order to discuss the possibility of collecting the child.
