2. Confirming the Child’s place on Camp

  • a) Your confirmation email will contain a link to an online form asking for each child’s information (including personal details, medical information, and if there are any specific needs that we need to be aware of) – this form must be completed by a parent or guardian. You/They will also be given the opportunity at this stage to apply for any bursaries & discounts. We ask that this form be completed within five days of its receipt, or you may forfeit your camp ticket and lose the deposit.
  • b) Within five working days of receiving this form, you will be sent an email confirming the remaining amount to be paid for the camp(s) and payment instructions. The balance must be paid in full by 19th February 2022, and can be made by credit/debit card, cheque, online or by monthly instalments (summer camps only).

  • a) Sibling discounts – Each sibling is entitled to one £10 sibling discount for the Mini Camp. They are only eligible for one discount, even if attending multiple camps.
  • b) The Aunt Bessie fund is available for those who are receiving Universal Credit (or equivalent). You may apply for a bursary (£50 for Mini Camps and Easter, £65 for outdoor/church based and £110 for indoor) by sending photocopied proof of eligibility to the EMW (office@emw.org.uk, or EMW Camps, 31 Holyhead Road, Bangor, LL57 2EU). Bursaries from the Aunt Bessie Fund are limited and subject to availability.

5. Covid-19

  • a) We will be following the guidelines given by the Welsh government at the time of the camp. These will be sent out before the camp to the parent or guardian. If the camp is cancelled prior to its start due to a review of the covid regulations at the time, we will offer a full refund (minus a £10 administrative charge).
  • b) Mini-Camp Guidance:
  • i. In accordance with government regulations, we have created a risk assessment for the mini-camp, which can be viewed by contacting the office directly. It includes limiting numbers on the mini-camp, frequent hand washing, keeping windows open, maintaining social distance where possible and many other steps.
  • ii. We want parents to know in particular:
    • +That children will not be divided into smaller bubbles within the camp. This will mean that while we do our best to keep the distance between children, it is inevitable that children will mix.
    • + Under 18s will not be asked to wear masks during the camp, and adults will not wear masks within the center grounds.
    • + Children will share rooms and bathrooms together (up to 4 in each room)
    • + We will be asking all children to take an LFT test at the beginning of each morning (except Thursday morning). If the test is positive, then we will isolate the child (sensitively) and contact the parent immediately. It is expected that the parent will make every effort to collect the child immediately.
  • c) We ask all children and people who give them a lift to the camp to do an LFT test before leaving. If the test is positive, or you show any symptoms of Covid, we ask that you do not come to the camp.
  • d) Although not required by government guidelines, if your child has been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for covid in the three days prior to the camp we ask that you do not come to the camp.
  • e) Please contact the office to speak to Steffan Job (leader) for more information, or for clarity on the situation.

6. Amendments & Cancellations

  • a) To amend your booking please contact the EMW office immediately. An admin charge of £10 per ticket may be payable. Please note that places are non-transferable.

A full refund (less the deposit) will be given for cancellations given 28 days before the start of the relevant camp. Cancellations made between 8-27 days before the start of camp will receive a 50% refund (less deposit). We will not be able to refund tickets within 7 days of the start of the camp.
