Below please find some testimonials from past holiday camps
Hope that you are all having a great time. What a beautiful place! Bet it’s cold at night!!!
I am so very glad that you offer this service - and do it so well. I grew up in England and spent quite a bit of my early teenage holidays in America – in both places (America particularly as I’m sure you know) and was horrified to find it so hard to find camps here, so thrilled to see your advert in the PAC primary school newsletter some years ago. I believe that well run camps provide a wonderful and valuable experience for children of all ages. Overcoming the fear of not knowing anyone, experiencing new places and activities… then enjoying reunions with regulars (not to mention outdoor activities rather than screen time 24/7!).
Best wishes for a trouble-free and enjoyable camp,
Dear Luke & the Active Ed Holiday camps team,
I would just like to say a big thank you to you and your staff on a well run camp. Georgia and Emma (Not their real names) came away with such renewed confidence, friendships and a great deal of information to tell us. They both talked like two bob watches on the way home. It is very rewarding to see your children happy after being away. The children there that I spoke to all seemed to have a great time and they were hoping everyone would come back again. The companionship between the girls and boys is great to see as well.
We will definitely be back and spreading the word about your camps.
Thank you once again.
My child absolutely loves these camps and gets a chance to do activities that us as parents generally dont have time for or just arent capable of. Everything these days is computers/game consoles so this gives the kids a great opportunity to explore outdoor activities, make new friends and for my child personally.......... try new foods that i've had no success getting him to try at home. I highly recommend these camps to EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I would like to thank both of you for taking such good care of Jess (Not her real name). She had a fantastic time and I could tell she felt completely comfortable with you both. A lot of what I heard from Jess about the camp was extremely positive. She enjoyed all aspects especially free time. Jess likes to be creative and finds life very restrictive most of the time. Jess made some nice friendships and it sounds like you both are very good with kids.
Jess loved the food and activities. I like the fact you had a room inspection every am. That's great! We have incorporated this room inspection every am at home before school now. Working well.
The only area that Jess thinks you could improve on is.......MAKE THE CAMP LONGER!
Please inform Jess and myself of next camp if you have time.
Spend their day Outdoors – Running, jumping, hiking, swimming, climbing! As children spend so much time indoors these days, holiday camp provides a wonderful opportunity to get outside and explore freely.
Gain resiliency – The type of encouragement kids receive at holiday camp makes it a perfect environment to endure setbacks, try new things, and see that progress comes when you give something new a try, persevere.
Develop confidence – Holiday Camp sets aside all expectations, helps kids build self-confidence and self-esteem by removing the kind of intellectual, physical and social competition that shapes lives at school. With non-competitive activities and diverse opportunities to succeed, there is an achievement every day.
Enhance social skills – Coming to holiday camp means joining our community where everyone must agree to cooperate, understand and respect each other. When they live with others, kids share duties/chores, resolve conflict, and see firsthand the importance of good communication.
Unplug from technology – When children take a break from mobiles, TVs, and the internet, they develop the ability of engaging with the real world, real activities, real people and real emotions.
Figure out who they want to be – Camp provides the right guidance, equipment and facilities for children to enhance their skills, talents and abilities. The variety of activities offered on holiday camp, makes it uncomplicated for kids to discover and recognise what they like to do.
Make true friends – All the fun at camp draws everyone together. Free from the social expectations at school, holiday camp encourages children to relax and make friends easily. Camp is the place where children make their very best friends.
