When, What & Who?

WHEN?  Every school holiday and half-term.

WHAT?  Multi-Sports and Multi-Activity Camps for boys and girls aged 4 (Reception class) to 12.

WHO?  All our Buzzers Camps are run and managed by highly experienced sports coaches and qualified teachers. 

What does an average Buzzers Camp day look like?

Because all our staff come from school- based PE teaching backgrounds, we do not have a timetable of events at any of our Camps.

Our Camps are very much child lead, with the emphasis on trying new sports and activities, whilst building confidence and developing leadership skills. A rough guide to a Buzzers Camp day would be as follows -

8.30am:  'Extended Day' children arrive & register. All children go straight into a full group game on arrival.

9.00am:  First Sport/Activity (full group or small groups).

10.00am:  'Camp Day' children arrive and register. All children go straight into a full group game on arrival.

10.30am:  Camp rules explained and plan for the day discussed with children.

10.45am:  Second Sport/Activity (full group or small groups).

11.30am:  Break & supervised free play.

11.45am:  Third Sport/Activity (full group or small groups).

12.30pm:  Lunch

1.15pm:  Fourth Sport/Activity (full group or small groups).

2.00pm:  Fifth Sport/Activity (full group or small groups).

3.00pm:  Break & supervised free play.

3.15pm:  Sixth Sport/Activity (full group or small groups).

4.00pm:  'Camp Day' children are collected. All remaining children continue previous sport.

4.15pm:  Seventh Sport/Activity (full group or small groups).

5.00pm:  Eighth Sport/Activity (full group or small groups).

5.30pm:  'Extended Day' children collected. CAMP ENDS.

What is Class4Kids?

Class4Kids is our secure online booking system. It is a subscription-based system, which means some aspects of your booking screen we have no control over e.g. terminology and layout. Once you have registered for your free Class4Kids account, you simply log in every time you wish to make a Buzzers booking.

Do you offer sibling discounts?

Yes. We offer a 10% discount for sibling bookings. The discount is automatically added at the checkout. Parents are advised that booking multiple children who are not siblings, will not qualify for the discount.

My child has SEN, can they still attend?

Yes. All our senior staff work full-time as school-based PE tutors, therefore they are all experienced in working with children with SEN and adapting their sports sessions accordingly to ensure inclusion and individual development. We also offer a 1:1 programme for those children that require additional support during their time at Buzzers. Here at Buzzers, we strongly believe that no child should be excluded from sport and physical activity.

Can I book individual days?

Yes. Our flexible booking package means that you can book individual days and aren't tied in to booking full weeks.

How can I amend my booking?

Simply email camps@buzzers.org.uk with your required changes and we will do the rest! You will see the changes when you next log on to your Class4Kids account. Please contact us if you wish to add/remove days or add/remove early drop-offs and late pick-ups.

What should my child wear?

Children should wear sports clothing and rubber soled trainers. We also advise that children bring an outdoor coat. Weather dependent, you may also wish to pack a spare set of clothes. We strongly advise that jewellery is not worn to our Camps and that your child's clothing is comfortable to wear whilst playing sport and other physical activities. Please ensure you label all your children’s clothing and lunch items. All lost property is kept for 1 week after the end of each Camp and then donated to a local charity shop and/or children's charity.

Is food provided?

No. Children should have their own packed lunch and refillable water bottle. We also advise children to have a couple of extra snacks for the morning and afternoon breaks (no nuts please).

We have a strict 'no sharing' food policy which can be found in the 'Our Policies' section of this website.

Other than Sport, what else do you offer?

At all our Camps, our tutors will provide the following non-sporting activities -

  • Gymnastics

  • Dance

  • Arts & Crafts

  • Drama

  • Leadership Games

  • 'Special Events' (see below for further details)

What are 'Special Events'?

During most of our school holiday Camps, we run several 'Special Events'. These are run by external staff who are highly qualified and vastly experienced in the sport/activity that they teach. Our 'Special Events' include -

  • Archery

  • Boxing

  • Fencing

  • Circus Skills

  • Sand Art

  • First Aid Courses

  • Taekwondo

  • Paralympic Events

  • Pottery Painting

  • Cooking

  • Science

All our 'Special Events' are booked and paid for on arrival to the Camp. Payment for these events is by cash only.

Can I drop off and collect my child outside of the Camp hours?

Yes. If you plan to drop off your child later then the Camp start time (10am start only), this will be fine. At all our venues, the school gate will be closed and locked approximately half hour after the Camp start time, therefore you may have to ring the doorbell, or call our Head Office to get yourself buzzed in.

 

Visit the 'Contact Us' page for details on how to get in touch with us during Camp operating hours.

 

If you plan to collect your child earlier then the scheduled Camp finish time, then you must notify our staff beforehand. Alternatively, you can email camps@buzzers.org.uk and a message will be passed to the relevant Camp.

Can I stay and watch?

Parents are strongly advised not to stay unless there is a medical reason to do so. If your child arrives to our Camp upset or anxious, our staff will invite you to sit and watch the first few minutes of whatever game the children are playing. Parents will not be able to come into the hall/playground/pitch where the children are playing, but all our Camp have suitable viewing areas.
