What age & when can my child attend a Track Tribe holiday camp?
At The Track our holiday camps run throughout the School Holidays..
Our entertaining holiday camps are for boys and girls between the ages of 5-11. Children can attend for a day or a number of days fitting around your existing work commitments and holidays. A typical day runs from 9 am – 3 pm, however, extra time can also be booked (8 am – 9 am & 3 -4 or 5 pm) giving you that extra flexibility ( at an extra cost of course) .
Why Can’t my four year old attend a holiday camp?
Our Holiday camps are Ofsted exempt (exemption 11) camps designed for boys and girls aged 5 – 11 years. We would have to be Ofsted registered child care to accept 4 year olds so we can only accept children who are 5 years or over.
Why aren’t you an Ofsted Registered Holiday Camp?
Basically we see this as more red tape and no need as we hold ourselves to the same high standards as with all our coaching and we fall within the exemption for sporting facilities providing activities. We are a professional Sport Coaching facility, running bike and swim training and all of our staff have one , the other or both qualifications for coaching as well as an enhanced DBS check, paediatric first aid training and a commitment to continual professional development.
Rest assured our venue and day to day running, health and safety and risk assessments do hit Ofsted requirements to ensure your child is in a safe environment, we just are in the exempt category so do not have the registration.
How many children do you have at the Track Tribe camps and what is the ratio?
We use the following supervision guidelines from Ofsted as a minimum :
for children under the age of six years is strictly 1:8
for children aged 6 – 7 years is strictly 1:12
for children aged 8+ years is 1:16
What can/will my child do at a Track Tribe holiday camp?
At a Track Tribe holiday camp, your child will participate in a number of sporting activities. Our camps are designed for children of all ages and sporting abilities. Over the course of a day, children will learn new skills including social, technical and physical. Children will take place in numerous sporting activities to develop their speed, agility and team skills.
The Track will be available for sole use of the Track Tribe from 9-10 am , during the day (depending which day your child attends and weather permitting of course) they may do other riding sessions and you are welcome to stay and they can ride for free from 3-5pm each day once we have handed them back over to you.
We will have additional riding skills courses available throughout the holidays, keep an eye on our website and facebook page for more info.
Inflatables / Obstacle Courses
Some of the days at our camps are inflatable /water days where children will have the opportunity to use some of the following: slides, bouncy castles, gladiator duel or an obstacle course, slip and slide.
We have made a Ninja Warrior Obstacle course at The Track , behind the half pipe and running along side the foam pit ( with all the extra foam for them to run through ). Fantastic fun , fitness training and agility . Race the clock or your mates.
We are very lucky to be the home of Kernow Hydro so we have access to the 8x4 meter saltwater hydro pool. We will have private use of the pool some days and will organize fun water sessions, Hydro Jump (water trampoline ) sessions , water boxing , water polo, and much more.
We will not be offering swim lessons as part of the Holiday Camp but you are welcome to book 1:1 lessons before or after the days sessions. Go to : www.kernowhydro.co.uk
