Thank-you to those parents and children who used the Holiday Camp over summer 2019. As many of you are aware, it was a trial collaboration with Warwick Sports and Warwick Arts. I know many children and parents expressed their fulfilment with the range of activities on offer and this is something we hoped to continue with. After much thought and careful consideration we are unable to continue in this way.
The Holiday Camps are not profitable but they do have to be self-funding. The integrated camp was hugely popular but the additional costs of extra staff and transport was financially detrimental to the Camp. This is something we cannot continue with as it puts the Holiday Camp at risk. I have had in-depth discussions with the Head of Children’s Services and the Head of Delivery at Warwick Sport in hope that we could resolve the situation but unfortunately this isn’t possible.
We will continue to offer the Multi-Activity Camp which was previously known as the Holiday Scheme during all school holidays (except for the Christmas break). The Camp is suitable for children between the ages of 5 and 12 years old and will remain the same as in previous years.
If you have any questions please let me know how I can help.
Thank-you for your understanding.
Holiday Scheme Coordinator
