Meals consist of a pork sausage in a roll that the children will cook over the campfire, along with a snack hamper filled with brownies, cookies, crisps and fruit. Water is available at all times for the children to drink. If your child wants to bring his or her own lunch to camp then we are happy to store that appropriately. We can cater for most dietary requirements with notice.
Please dress for outdoor activities, with long trousers, trainers or walking shoes. Wellies are not ideal and crocs/sandals are not permitted. Any guest wearing these will not be able to partake! As appropriate please provide waterproof jacket, sweatshirt or fleece, sun hat, sun cream, spare clothing etc.
We are an outdoor company but have covered areas for some activities. Rain rarely stops play!
You’re welcome to stay and watch your children play. There is limited seating and covered areas.
Rugged Earth do not supply any refreshments for adults. There is a cafe located in the Garden Centre and you are more than welcome to bring your own refreshments. We can supply a table for you to set up some snacks.
Rugged Earth Adventures Staff
Main activity staff are DBS/CRB checked and are selected for their professionalism and enthusiasm. A paediatric first aider and a first aid kit are on site at all times. We use the Scout Movement handbook as a safety guideline.
Safety & Security
This is our first and last concern. The Camp takes place on fenced private land, children are supervised at all times. All staff are briefed on emergency and incident procedures and qualified first aid staff are on site at all times. Full instructions are given to all children before activities are undertaken. Activities take place over rough natural ground and although we take every precaution to ensure safe play, trips and bumps may occur. REA takes care to ensure all activities are in keeping with the environmental policies of the area. Rugged Earth Adventures holds full public liability insurance.
We are not responsible for children that do not adhere to staff briefing and instructions.
