Frequently asked questions:
Q Can parents attend?
A Yes. One parent can attend as a volunteer without any charges, however, if the second parent wants to attend also, there will be a charge of £25. This does not apply if one, or both parents are camp leaders/workshop leaders.
Q Does a parent have to attend?
A If your child is under 8 years of age, we request that a parent attend camp.
Q Can those under 6 years of age attend?
A Under 6 year olds can only attend if they have an older sibling (aged 6 -16years) attending camp. If this is the case, there is no additional charge for the under 6's, however, please note that the camp is not designed for under 6's. Although we try and accommodate younger children, we may not be able to include them in the workshops and activities and would be grateful that you don't ask, to avoid embarrassment for either party.
Q Can those over 17 years of age?
A Yes. We welcome applications from young people aged between 17 and 24 years to attend camp as youth leaders. However, as there are limited places available, you will have to apply for these spaces (form attached). If your application is approved, you will be notified by the end of June 2013.. As a volunteer, there is no charge to attend camp, however, you will be expected to hold a position of responsibility and hence act accordingly.
Q What is the accommodation like?
A There are limited bunk beds in dormitories. We try and prioritise these for the children to encourage friendships to be formed. Children are separated according to gender and there may be a camp leader/parent of the same gender in the dormitory (dependent on age of the children). For the remainder and adults, you will be notified nearer the time if you are required to bring a tent for camping on the field adjacent to building. If you have any specific requests regarding sleeping arrangements, please contact me directly.
Q How do we get there?
A There will be a coach travelling from The Tibet House in London. This will leave at 9.00am sharp from The Tibet House, 1 Culworth Street, London NW8 7AF. For those who wish to make the journey themselves, you can arrive at camp between 11.30am -12pm. Please do not be later than this as there will be an induction and welcome talk at 12pm.--
