We are pleased to announce that we are planning to run our 2021 Summer Scheme as last year with limited activities and half day adventures running Monday to Friday. We will only be taking full week online bookings and numbers will be limited.
Due to Covid-19 we will again have to reduce our offering to half day of activities, Mon to Fri. Thank you for your understanding.
Cost: £80 per child
Duration: Monday to Friday FULL WEEK only from 10am-12.30pm
Age restrictions: Min age 6 yrs-15 yrs old
Book online to pre pay & reserve your timeslot for Summer Scheme 2021.
We will plan small groups of max 10 children per ‘Group’ or ‘Bubble’, assigned to a member of staff that will stay with and manage the group for the whole week. A second member of staff will manage the daily activity and will be responsible for cleaning down all the equipment before and after use by participants; giving a Staff Ratio of 1:5 for safety.
Groups will be sorted into families and friends as best as we can, however it may be difficult to manage a wide age range within groups so we will need to manage the age gap. You’ll appreciate that a 6-year-old on a bike trip with a 15-year-old sibling would be difficult. To manage the ages within groups we will aim to have no more than 4 years between the youngest and the oldest.
Banners and signage at Shaw’s Bridge will be kept to a minimum.
No gazebos will be available for changing after any wet activities so participants will need a large towel to wrap up and change in their own guardians’ vehicle or at home.
For the wet adventure walk and tubing day, your child can arrive in a wetsuit or if they don’t have one, we recommend tight-fitting, long sleeved clothing (for example gym leggings/under armour, synthetic fleece and a wind proof or waterproof jacket). Unfortunately, MTA won’t be able to provide wetsuits (remember we won’t have any gazebos for changing this year).
Each day participants will need to look after their own personal belongings if they wish to bring an optional snack and drink, this could stay with the parent or guardian until after the activities.
We will send out a last minute plan to confirm which day each activity is running and where to meet at Shaw’s Bridge to stay in bubbles.
Due to the current situation of Covid-19 we had to make some major changes to how we ran our Summer Scheme/summer Camp last year at Shaw’s Bridge. We are still not 100% sure that when running this years; 2021 summer scheme/summer camp, that public toilets will be open. For Mobile Team Adventure to run a full day camp we would really need these facilities available. So we regrettably have to reduce our summer scheme to a half day (2.5hrs) as per 2020.
Social distancing will be maintained as much as possible, we have changed our procedures to facilitate social distancing and safe practices. It is your child’s responsibility to maintain social distancing for other children. Safety of individuals will always come first, so if contact is needed to assist or rescue someone as a matter of safety, no hesitation will be made, of course any contact will be kept to the absolute minimum necessary.
During the summer scheme, participants will need to let MTA know immediately if they feel unwell or show any of the stated symptoms and will have to self-isolate/quarantine for 14 days as per the Government guidelines. If anyone within your child’s ‘Group/Bubble’ shows any of the symptoms then everyone within that ‘Group/Bubble’ will also have to self-isolate. Unfortunately NO refunds will be given. Staff that have come in contact with the group will also have to self-isolate.
Mobile Team Adventure has a duty of care for each young person, the staff and the general public.
Please can you help us by following the safety procedures that we have put into place to help protect everyone. Please can you explain to your child before attendance this procedure and why.
When booking online you will be asked several questions and emergency contact information. You will receive an auto response with this year’s Summer Scheme procedure for daily registration and kit list etc.
Finally, thank you for supporting Mobile Team Adventure and we are sorry we have had to change our format after 16 years of running our Shaw’s Bridge Summer Scheme. We are doing our best to meet the new requirements and we really appreciate your understanding.
