The camp takes place at Oundle C.E. Primary School (where the morning sessions are also held) and we expect those taking part to camp with us through the week and to make the school their base. Occasionally there are good reasons why young people need to sleep off-site, but we would strongly encourage everyone to camp! This really helps with the community feel of Chattabox+ and is great fun.
Young people who are currently in Year 7 (Junior Helpers during the mornings) are permitted to camp overnight, with parental permission. Parents who feel that their Year 7 child needs more sleep then it is probably best if they join us as ‘day campers’. It’s important that everyone can give 100% in the mornings so please decide accordingly. Whatever age they are, the Day campers can arrive on site from 7.30am for breakfast but must leave at 10pm after the evening activities (the gates will be locked shortly after.) Any Day campers aged under 16 must be collected by a parent or carer unless written permission has been given for your young person to make their own way home.
