  • All family members will be antigen tested on arrival to camp.
  • Families will be asked to monitor and record daily temperature checks for each family member for 3 days before attending camp – daily reminders will be sent to families by text message.
  • All adults and children aged 13 and over will be required to wear a face covering when indoors and outside when unable to maintain the 2-metre distance.
