Let's Go! ... Parent Guide

Dear Parents,

At Let’s Go! Multi Sports Camps, your child is our primary concern. We have, over the years, designed the best multi sports summer day camp available in Ireland. We combine structured educational sessions with the fun and games synonymous with summer camps. At Let’s Go! we aim to positively contribute to your child’s education.

We pride ourselves on our child friendly, professional staff who are trained to ensure the needs of all our campers are met. The emphasis on all our camps is on taking part. Our daily programme is designed to ensure excitement, fun and variety in each day. We are proud of our camps, they have been tried and tested and we know that our programme will offer your child a very worthwhile experience.

Registration and Group Organisation

Registration will take place on the first morning of the camp at your designated arrival time. Each child will be allocated a group for the week.
Being in the right group is very important to children. It is very important to us too! Children are grouped according to their age. This is by far the most practical method when one has to organise a range of creative and physical activities. Children often ask to be placed with their brother/sister/friend. There is no problem with this, provided they are roughly the same age. As some activities on our programme are physically challenging, it is not appropriate to have children of various ages in the one group. Please do not worry as this system is tried and tested and works well. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, children will not be permitted to change group at any time after being assigned on the first day.

Following registration, group rolls will be taken; our Camp Manager will welcome the children, introduce our staff and brief them on the week’s activities. It is our aim that activities will commence no later than 10:30am.

Covid-19 update:Parents/guardians are not permitted to enter the camp venue unannounced at any time during the camp day. If you must return to the camp venue during the day, you must first phone our office to arrange this.

Friends
Should your child not have a friend going to camp, do not worry, as our staff will introduce your child to new friends during our start the day icebreaker activities.

Lunch:
There will be two breaks each day. As the children may be more active than usual it is essential that they are taking enough fuel on board. They will need to bring a packed lunch and 3-4 non fizzy drinks.
Break and lunchtime are fully supervised by our staff.

HAND SANITIZER: Lets go will supply hand sanitizers for general use at areas of high foot fall. Children will be encouraged to practice good hand hygiene and hand washing will take place regularly during the day.We request that each child also attends camp with their own supply of hygiene products for their own personal use. This includes (hand sanitizer, wipes, and moisturiser if needed) These will be kept in your child’s bag and used before and after break times. We request that your child does not bring any personal belongings to camp (toys, blankets, etc.) to prevent possible transmission of coronavirus

HOT WEATHER:
Children should wear a sun hat. Apply sun cream prior to camp. Children will be reminded to reapply their sun cream during the day. Please advise your children on the application of sun cream as Lets Go staff will be limited in our interaction due to social distancing.

WET WEATHER:
If the weather is inclement, please ensure your child has appropriate RAINWEAR as activities will run as scheduled.

CLOTHING & FOOTWEAR:
Please ensure that your child brings a long sleeve top and tracksuit bottoms each day as it is a requirement for certain activities. All children must wear runners to the camp each day. If your child has long hair for health and safety, please ensure it is tied up daily.

*Note: For hygiene reasons, government advises that shoes and clothing be cleaned (or removed) before entering your own home each day to prevent the possible transmission of Coronavirus. Shoes especially should be wiped down/disinfected each day before entering your home.

Notice Board:
Our summer camp notice board is located outside the main entrance. This is updated daily and all the information regarding activities, what your child needs etc will be available there.

Lost Property:
Each evening any lost property will be displayed in the hall. Please ensure that all your child’s belongings are labelled.

 Mobile Phones:

Children should not bring mobile phones to camp. Should they require them after camp, they must remain powered off in their bags. We are not responsible for lost or damaged phones.
