Payment and Booking with Top Camps:
Bookings show that parents and guardians are aware and will adhere to the Covid-19/health and safety procedures conducted by Top Camps which are in accordance with the public health guidelines. Parents and guardians must monitor their child or children’s health. Do not send any child or children to camp which are sick or have any Covid-19 symptoms. If a child has been in contact with a confirmed or suspected Covid-19 14 days before camp commences, please do not send them to camp. Parents and guardians should make bookings through the quick and easy online booking form on the Top Camps website; please visit www.topcamps.ie. To secure a place at a camp full payment is required (non-refunded). This must be paid via our online payment system. Or you can pay the first day of camp; however, there are limited spaces. We recommend pre-booking in advance.
Camp and Covid-19 procedures/protocols:
There is a reduced the number of children attending the camp this year to help maintain effective social distancing during these unprecedented times. Children will stay in their pod/bubble group for the week. Pods and bubble groups will not mix with other groups during the camp. Once a child is placed in a pod/bubble group, they will not be let change group at any time. Friends will be placed in the same pod/bubble on request. To protect everyone will be carrying out contactless drop off/collection system. This will involve staggered arrival times where you may stay in your car and queue to drop off or collect your child from camp. All staff will be trained on effective covid-19 hygiene and cleaning practices to help ensure a safe environment for all. Notice must be given to the camp manger and senior staff if one (parent or guardian) requires access to the camps facilities while camp is taking place.
The summer camp programme has been created based on HSE guidelines and recommendations from the Physical Education Associations and Department of Education. All activities will take place outdoors where possible (weather dependant). There will only be one group at each activity at one time. Hand sanitising stations will be available at the camp. However, each child should bring their own hand sanitiser for personal use. Staff will reinforce and remind children to regularly hand sanitise through each day to uphold the guidelines in place. High touch areas such as hand railings, doors and equipment will be disinfected and cleaned regularly.
All equipment used during activities will be cleaned after usage. Anyone (child, staff or parent) showing Covid-19 symptoms before or after camp must not attend Top Camps to help ensure the safety and health of everyone. If someone shows symptoms, our staff will follow a health and safety protocol to safely self-isolate the person until they can return home. A face mask will also be supplied to the person showing symptoms. It will then be recommended that the person calls their GP and follows the medical advice supplied. Top camps will fill out an incident report form and work with any of the HSE contact tracing teams requests.
