10 FAQ’s What to take with you – kit list Pocket money – how much to take
Valuable items – best left at home Electrical appliances – must be safe Deodorants – roll-on only please Laundry – emergencies only Contacting your child Pocket money - It is very much up to you however, as a guide, most groups allow £1.50 per night plus £ on the last night for souvenirs What to pack and valuable items - Please limit luggage to one case/bag per person and one item of hand luggage for carrying food etc. on the journey The kit list is provided on the Parent Information Leaflets however we would like to stress that: Brand new and expensive items (such as mobile phones) should be left at home Old, casual clothes are recommended Pack more clothes if it is likely to be wet weather All clothing should be marked with the student’s name and school. Electrical appliances - Guests are responsible for the safety of any electrical appliances brought to centre. The Centre Manager reserves the right to ask for appliances not to be used if they appear to be unsafe. Deodorants - It is advised that children bring roll-on deodorants rather than aerosol deodorants as these can often set off fire alarms. Laundry facilities - There are limited laundry facilities on centre and therefore they can only be used in an emergency. Contacting your child - Parents are asked not to call the centre except in an emergency. Children are involved in an activity programme often on a large site and may be some distance away from the phone.
