Is there anything my child cannot bring to camp?

Please note that as we are a ‘nut-aware camp,’ we do not allow any food items with nuts.

Are all the activities included or do I have to pay extra for some?

All the activities on the main camp timetable are included in your child’s booking with Camp Beaumont. The camp timetable will be available in the sign in/out area at camp and show what your child will be doing each day. However, we do have some available Action Extra activities which you can choose to upgrade to at an additional cost. These action extras give children a more specialised session with focus on something they may have shown an interest in, from horse riding to baking. These can be purchased before camp starts, or your child can be added to the register during camp time if we have availability – just speak to a member of camp management on site!

Can I pay in instalments?

Unfortunately, we are unable to set up a payment plan. All bookings must be paid in full upon booking.

What do I receive from Camp Beaumont once I have placed a booking?

If you have made your booking online you will receive a summarised confirmation email to the email address you provided when making your booking. Within 24 hours* of making the booking you will receive full confirmation. *Please allow up to 48 hours for your full emailed confirmation for any bookings placed online over the weekend. If you do not receive your emailed confirmation, please check your junk folders before contacting us: sometimes they can appear in there.

The week before camp starts, we'll also email you the contact details of the camp you've booked, along with a welcome packet with specific information about the camp you have booked.

What happens if it rains?

Of course, as much as we would love to rely on the Hong Kong weather, we cannot always ensure the weather stays fine for your child’s time at camp! However, we do not let a little rain stop us. All timetables are planned with a ‘wet weather’ alternative which means that the majority of activities will still be able to take place indoors. Of course, there are some exceptions to this – but where an activity is missed because it cannot take place, we work our hardest to replace it with an equally enjoyable alternative

What if I had booked but now you are closed the week that I booked for?

We will be in touch to look at moving your booking to a later date when we are operating, to offer a credit note to use until the end of Summer 2021, or offer you a refund. Please bear with us as we contact all the customers that this may affect.

When are you re-opening your camps?

We are planning to re-open our camps for the Easter holidays subject to government guidance.

If I cancel, can I get a refund?

If you cancel then our booking terms and conditions will apply as normal, however due to the current situation, we are offering extra flexibility to reschedule your booking to a later date. If we are unable to operate due to Government restrictions, we will help you move your booking, offer you a credit note, or give you a refund.

Can my child move to a different bubble?

Unfortunately not, once a group bubble is set we cannot move children between them to ensure we keep everyone safe and avoid any spread of Covid-19 throughout the pandemic.

What if I had booked but now you are closed the week that I booked for?

If we are unable to operate camp for any reason, we will help you move your booking to another holiday, offer you a credit note, or give you a full refund.

What are your isolation protocols?

If someone on camp starts to display symptoms of COVID-19, then that child will be required to isolate until they are collected. Their parent/guardian will be notified immediately and required to come and collect their child(ren) as soon as reasonably possible. The rest of the Group Bubble will be able to continue as normal unless there is multiple children or team members displaying symptoms at which point a decision will be made to isolate the entire Group Bubble to safeguard the rest of camp. The individual(s) presenting symptoms of covid-19 are required to get a test and inform the Camp Manager as soon as reasonably possible of the result. Positive Test - If the result comes back positive then the remainder of the Group Bubble must isolate and their parents/guardians will be required to collect as soon as reasonably possible. Then follow the latest government isolation/testing protocols. Negative Test – If the result comes back negative then the child will be admitted back to camp and the Group Bubble can continue as normal. The area in which anyone isolates will be cleaned and disinfected thoroughly after each use. Camp Beaumont has engaged the services of a market leading touch-less disinfection and decontamination company who will be on standby to attend site and disinfect areas as required.

Do all children need to be in group bubbles?

Under current guidance, any child aged 3 to 5 years old is not required to be in bubbles of 15, as long as they are not mixing in groups with any children 6 years old or above. So our ‘Playtime’ age group (3 & 4 years old) and our 5 year old children do not need to be in group bubbles. Any children aged 6 or above are still required to remain in small consistent groups of no more than 15 children. This will include any 5 year olds who, for logistical purposes, will need to be in a group with 6 year olds.

Can I request that my child is in the same group bubble as their friend?

This has been one of our main challenges around the bubble system. Whilst trying to keep everyone safe, we recognise that children are on occasion not being grouped with their friends. We believe that one of the great things about holiday camps is meeting new people, making new friends and interacting with different people, we do recognise that the children also want to be grouped with their friends from outside of Camp, particularly after the disruption to schooling this academic year. We have worked closely with our onsite teams to show a degree of flexibility, where possible, to ensure that children who have friends attending camp will be in the same bubble. Whilst we cannot guarantee that a whole friendship group will be together, we will look to ensure that a child with friends at the camp does not find themselves in a group where they do not know anyone. If you would like to request that your child is in the same group bubble as one of their friends the best thing to do is email the camp that they are attending directly and where possible by the Thursday of the week prior to your arrival. You can find the relevant email address in the pre-camp email we'll send the week before the holidays begin.

What if my child is in a Group Bubble that then is closed due to someone testing positive for Covid-19?

You will be notified immediately and required to come and collect your child from Camp as soon as reasonably possible. Whilst waiting all children in the Group Bubble will be subject to our ‘Displayed Symptoms Procedure’ and isolation protocols. Your child and household will then be required to adhere to government self-isolation protocols. If your child or member of your household starts to display symptoms then they will be eligible for a test. We will welcome your child back to camp once self-isolation and/or testing protocols have been met and it is safe for them to return. You will be entitled to a credit note or you can reschedule the days missed free of charge to a later date.

Why do our children need to be in group bubbles?

Under current government guidance, we are required to keep children 6 years and older in small consistent bubbles of no more than 15 children to minimise the mixing of our children and staff and help prevent the spread of COVID-19 throughout the pandemic. The idea is that if someone within a group bubble displayed any symptoms, only that particular group bubble that would need to close and not the whole camp. If a group bubble was to close, those within it would need to follow the latest government self-isolation and/or testing guidance.

Are you allowed to open your camps under current guidance?

We anticipate that post 22nd February 2021 we will receive updated guidance that will enable us to once again offer inspiring adventures for all age groups for the Easter holidays and beyond. As always, your bookings are safe with Camp Beaumont, in the unlikely event that we are unable to operate we will help you to reschedule your booking, issue a credit note or offer a full refund. You can find the latest guidance by clicking the link below, as soon as this changes as we expect, we will update this page https://www.gov.uk/guidance/national-lockdown-stay-at-home#childcare

What are you doing when you're-open to ensure everyone’s safety?

We safely welcomed over 8,000 children in 2020 using our tried and tested COVID-safe practices. You can view our COVID policy at the top of thispage.

There are 10 hey ways that we keep everyone safe at Camp Beaumont when we open: 1. Contactless sign in & sign out 2. Clearly visible social distancing signage 3. Gloves and facemasks available for our teams if required 4. Thorough handwashing for all every hour 5. Easily accessible hand sanitiser stations for all 6. Reduced camp capacities 7. Maximum of 12 children per group 8. Programme adjustments 9. Staggering of lunch times 10. Enhanced cleaning routines

As we get closer to opening more information on the above will be released via our blog and on our social channels. Our goal is to offer a much needed service to parents in the safest way possible and continue inspiring children throughout the school holidays.

What happens if my child has an accident or becomes ill whilst at camp?

While we always ensure high safety standards, there will inevitable be times when accidents happen! Our staff are all trained in the protocols for dealing with and reporting accidents and we always have paediatric first aiders onsite who are able to administer any necessary first aid. In the event of a minor accident, first aiders will assess the child’s injuries and treat them accordingly. An Accident Report Form will be filled out detailing how the accident happened, the injuries sustained, and the treatment given. This report will be shown to the person collecting the child at sign out time. We will communicate what happened and ask the parent or carer to sign the Accident Report Form to acknowledge our communication with them. In the event of your child bumping their head or for any injury from the neck up, a first aider will be contacted and an Accident Report Form filled out (as above), however we will always ensure we give you a courtesy call to let you know what has happened. After a head bump, staff monitor children closely – if staff have any concerns we will always contact you. At the end of the day, you will be asked to sign an Accident Report Form to acknowledge our communication with you. In the event of a serious accident, our first aiders will assess the situation and you will always be contacted to be informed of the next steps. If your child becomes ill whilst at camp, a first aider will monitor your child’s symptoms. If their illness is minor and they feel better after a rest and a drink, an Incident Report Form will be filled out letting you know what happened and will be available for you to sign when you collect them. In this instance, we will continue to monitor your child throughout the day and contact you if symptoms worsen. For anything more serious, you will be called and our camp teams will discuss with you whether or not they/you feel your child needs to be collected and taken home. Children will be able to wait in the first aid area for as long as possible and will be monitored by camp staff. Again, an Incident Report Form will be available for you to sign on collection.

Will my child need any money with them at camp?

No, we would strongly recommend that your child does not bring any money with them. Camp Beaumont cannot be held responsible for any money that goes missing whilst on camp. All of our camps only accept cashless methods of payment for any extras and merchandise.

What if I am delayed in collecting my child?

We understand that sometimes things happen outside of your control and you may be late collecting your child. Please give the camp a call as soon as you know that you may be late so that we know - you’ll receive the number by email the week before camp starts. If you are later than 15:15pm then we reserve the right to charge an additional fee for every 15 minutes late. This is to cover the cost of the two team members that are required to stay.

Don’t worry though, your child will be kept safe and entertained until you arrive.

My child needs extra support. Can they attend camp?

If your child requires extra support, the best thing to do would be to get in contact with one of our team members on bookings@campbeaumont.asia. You will have the opportunity to give information about your child’s needs and the support required and we will endeavour to come up with a plan to enable your child to have the best time possible at Camp Beaumont. We make these plans with parents and carers on an individual case basis and are happy to work with you on a plan which works for your child. Throughout your child’s time at camp, we will ensure we communicate thoroughly about the parts of the plan whichare/are not working and will make changes in collaboration with you to support your child.

Don’t worry though, your child will be kept safe and entertained until you arrive.

What is the structure of the day?

Depending on your child’s age and group, the structure of the day differs slightly. Sign In begins at 8:30 please make sure you arrive no later than 09:00am. During this time, staff will ensure children are settled and play games with them to warm them up for the day ahead! For the rest of the day, children will participate in up to six activity sessions with frequent toilet, sun cream and water breaks. There is a break for lunch and a snack break for our campers who are under the age of 8. At 16:00, all children will be taken back to their Sign Out points. Sign Out runs from 16:00- 16:30pm and children will be entertained by camp staff until their adults come to collect them when the camp day is officially over!

How do you manage discipline and behaviour?

Positive reinforcement is the key for us at Camp Beaumont! We want all children who come to camp to enjoy their time with us and have the best holiday experience possible. If we see children behaving appropriately, we make sure to comment on and reward this behaviour. All staff have some behaviour management training which focuses on outlining rules and discussing why they are important, then managing children’s behaviour. Of course, we understand that in a new and exciting environment, children may need reminding of behaviour expectations – and to that end, each group will agree to a camp contract outlining the rules of our sites. These rules are designed in collaboration with campers to ensure they keep themselves and others safe and enable activities to be as enjoyable as possible! If a child is consistently breaking the rules and disrupting others, they will be taken aside and spoken to by a member of staff . A discussion will be had about why the rules are in place and why it is important to behave appropriately, then will be sent back to the group to enjoy the activity! In the case that a child is consistently not following the rules, this will be communicated to parents and carers. If a child’s behaviour puts them or someone else at risk, this becomes more serious. In Incident Report Form will be completed and details of what has happened communicated to parents.

If a child’s behaviour at camp consistently puts themselves, others or staff members at risk or causes significant disruption to a group, parents or carers will be contacted and a warning given to that child. If this then continues, we reserve the right to prohibit a child from attending camp as a result of this.

What happens when I drop my child off?

When you arrive, follow the signs to the ‘sign in’ area. There you will find your child’s age group table with a friendly Head Group Leader to sign in your child. Your child will then be introduced to their group leaders and encouraged to join in with their group in some small warm up activities whilst the rest of the group arrives.

Can I find out how my child's day is going?

Our teams are extremely busy throughout the day ensuring that all of our campers are having the best time, so we would encourage you to speak with our team at collection time to get some feedback on how your child’s day was. If you really need to get in touch with the camp, you are able to do this by calling or emailing the camp directly using the contacts we’ll send you the week before camp starts.

It’s my child’s first time, what can we expect?

We understand that you and your child may be nervous about coming to camp for the first time. We have outstanding and caring staff who will ensure you and your child made comfortable and to ensure that your child settles into camp quickly. Looking after your children is a huge responsibility and one we take incredibly seriously. Camp Beaumont’s mission is to create inspiring adventures throughout the school holidays, to do that we ensure we have highly trained camp staff on hand to settle all campers. Each child will be assigned a group leader who will be on hand to explain how the day will run, familiarise them with the camp location and advise on what they can expect. We are confident that very quickly your child will make new friends, challenge themselves with new activities and create longlasting memories.

Can my child bring electronic devices to camp?

Day Camps

We would prefer if children did not bring gadgets with them to camp as we would like them to get the most out of our activities. If they must bring a smart watch or a phone, they must keep them in their bags at all times. It is their responsibility to keep them safe.
