Summary of key findings for parents

This provision is good The provider is dedicated to providing high-quality care for children. Staff are well qualified and continuous training opportunities are provided that relate to the varied activities on offer. This helps staff to extend their skills and to have a secure understanding of their roles and responsibilities. Children are warmly welcomed into the camp by friendly staff. Staff show a genuine interest in them and discuss the activities that they will be doing, such as outdoor art and nature trails. Parents spoken to during the inspection were highly complimentary about the organisation of the camp. They said that their children settle well and that they are always talking about things that they have enjoyed doing. Children are well behaved and understand how to respect each other’s feelings. Good discussions with staff help children to recall appropriate rules of the setting and how to keep safe during the day. The manager is a good role model and is very attentive to younger children’s needs. It is not yet outstanding because: Although children bring their water bottles to the camp, these are not easily available so that they can quickly quench their thirst after activities. At times, staff do not provide children with opportunities to make independent choices and explore their individual ideas.
