Covid-19 Silver Kidz Camps Summer 2020 Update 10.7.2020
We hope you are all well. Here is the latest update from Silver Kidz Camps.
Great news, Silver Kidz Camp Summer 2020 is on! We have been working tirelessly to ensure we are ready for a safe yet exciting summer, please take note of the following changes and updates:
1. To ensure we have time for a deep clean of camp both before and after sessions, we are not able to offer early drop off or late pick up.
These are our summer revised times:
Drop off – 8.30am – 9am
Pick Up – 5pm – 5.30pm
Due to strict ratios and staffing levels, if you are late for drop off or pick up a £5 per child charge will be added to your account.
2. Our ‘book now, pay later’ scheme has served it’s purpose but has now come to an end. In order to secure your child’s place, please ensure that your account balance has been settled. Once completed, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
Child’s full name:
How payment was made: BACS/Debit or Credit/Childcare Vouchers (including providing – and payment transfer date)
3. Our terms and conditions have been updated for Summer 2020 – once a booking has been confirmed and paid for, no adjustments or cancellations can be made – this is due to having to limit the available spaces.
4. We are working on the most creative programme for our campers that adheres to government guidelines. We are hoping to have this ready for you by Monday 20th July 2020. We apologise in advance that this is late notice, however we need time to ensure that what we are offering can be done safely and efficiently.
5. We are in the process of creating a detailed site map which will show how we plan to safely utilise our space to create an exciting experience for your children.
6. So you can see how seriously we take your child’s safety, we will be releasing our full Covid-19 strategy this weekend. This will include what training our staff have had to undertake to prepare for camp.
Finally, we are striving to make this a great summer for all to enjoy, in the safest possible way. We need your help to get this message out to friends and family who may or may not of thought about joining us. Please spread the word. We are a small family business and like everyone, have really been affected by the on-going situation and really want our childcare provision to be loved by all.

Covid-19 Silver Kidz Camps Summer 2020 Update 2.7.2020
Dear Campers and Families,
We hope you are keeping safe and well. As you may of already heard, the Government are gradually releasing guidelines for out of hours provisions and we wanted to pass on the following update.
As it stands the Government are provisionally advising that Ofsted registered summer childcare providers will be allowed to open their doors.
Therefore as you can appreciate in order to keep our campers safe, there is a lot of preparation that we need to undertake in order to be ready to open. As a result, we are proposing a new ‘book now, pay later’ scheme so that we can plan our ratios ensuring we adhere to these government guidelines.
Please keep an eye out for further information including our latest Covid-19 Health and Safety policy. This will be available to you in the coming week.
We hope you take full advantage of this and really appreciate all the support you have given us.
As you can understand we have been hard hit as so many of you have also. We need as much support as possible being a local small business who want to serve our community.
Booking now allows us to best plan this summer. If you are unsure of the dates you will require but roughly know how many days you are likely to book, please email this directly to us and we will do our best to accommodate you.
We can’t wait to finally be able to see you this summer and get ready for a safe but fun filled adventure as always with Silver Kidz Camps.
Supporting us can be as little as telling your next door neighbour about us, Making a comment on your school’s WhatsApp group or sharing our posts on social media. Whatever you can do to show your support for us through this period will help us continue to provide the best childcare possible. Make sure you follow us for the most up to date information on our social media accounts. @SilverKidzCamps.
If you have tried to email us already, please make sure you are using the correct email address email@example.com or alternatively message me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org . Please bear with us as most of our staff are still furloughed therefore replies may not be as speedy as usual.

Covid-19 Silver Kidz Camps Summer 2020 Update 22.6.2020
Thank you again for your continued support during this difficult time. We want to assure you we are doing everything we can to be part of your summer this year. We are doing our up most to prepare to run our summer camp as we believe there hasn’t been a more important time for us to be there for you all.
Throughout this time the government guidance for schools, early years and childcare providers have been changing rapidly and we are following these carefully. As these are ever-changing we cannot at this time confirm we will be open in the summer but as mentioned we are making arrangement and preparing to be so if we get the go ahead.
For us to be in the best possible situation to open for summer, we will be asking parents to pre-book their spaces from today. This will give us the opportunity to ensure we have enough children to run the camp as well as have the required information to make the appropriate adjustments. We have set up our systems to provide a ‘Pay Later’ option therefore you will not have to pay until the camp has been confirmed. Once confirmed you will be required to make payment 1 week prior to your child/children attending camp otherwise their place will no longer be available. In addition to this, all places will need to be booked 1 week prior to attendance due to use preparing ‘bubbles’ for each day. Our camp will be different however we guarantee we will still be the fun, exciting camp you have all known!
If we receive permission from the government we will be running our camps from Monday 27th July – Friday 28th August 2020 and want you to be assured that you can book the dates you need. If we are unable to operate our camp, and you have already paid, you will be offered the chance to move your booking to alternative dates, receive a credit note valid until September 2021 or if neither work for you, a full refund can be requested.
As you are aware some activities may be subject to change but we are hoping to have a skeleton outline of the weeks activities sent out to parents a week in advance.
We will continue to keep you up to date with the government guidelines and hoping for the best so we at Silver Kidz Camps can continue to support all those families juggling their work and family life.
A full covid-19 strategy will be released as soon as possible which will explain how we will be safeguarding all staff, children and parents that are working, playing or dropping off at Silver Kidz Camps.
The safety and well-being of everyone is key to our strategy and central government guidelines.
We will be keeping everyone updated on our website via http://silverkidzcamps.co.uk/covid-19/
We hope everyone is well and safe.
