We cannot wait to welcome you back to our festive Big Kids Camps this December!
We’ve been working hard to ensure we can continue to safely run our Big Kids Camps - see our FAQs below for all the measures we have put in place.
To reduce risk of transmission, camps will be organised into consistent ‘bubbles’ and as such, families may only make full session bookings (3 or 5 days), rather than choose individual days to join our camps.
Please note, our camps will only proceed if we have sufficient weekly demand. In the event that we are unable to run a camp, parents will be notified at least 7 days prior to the camp start and a full refund will be issued.
See our FAQs for further details.

our camps
Our camps are ideal for children from 4 - 8 years of age and are designed to stimulate curiosity and inspire creativity through a range of art, craft, cooking and music projects. Whether they are carrying out giant science experiments, rehearsing a musical performance using home-made instruments or designing and building a giant cityscape from cardboard boxes, our experienced camp leaders guide children to build relationships, learn social skills, practise problem-solving and teamwork and above all, have fun! Drinks, snacks and lunch are provided and independent ‘what if’ thinking is strongly encouraged!

How are you making it safe for children to attend camps?

The well-being of our team and our member community is paramount and we have put in place a number of measures to ensure a COVID safe environment for your children :

Social distancing, including
– pre-booked sessions with max. 15 children in same weekly ‘bubble’
– we will continue to maintain excellent staff / children ratios and each bubble will be allocated two staff members who will remain with them throughout the week
– parents will not be allowed to enter the club at drop-off; our team will welcome each child and settle them to the camp area
– children may not bring toys or other items from home

Increased sanitisation and cleaning
– attendees will be required to sanitise hands upon entry and regular hand-washing will be encouraged throughout the day
– increased cleaning shifts, including between sessions
– sanitisation stations
– removal of hard to clean toys and furnishings

When will camps run?

Camp sessions will run Monday to Friday from 26th October until 30th October. Camps will start at 10.30am and finish at 4.00pm. Early drop-off and late pick-up options are also available.

In order to reduce risk of transmission we must keep children within consistent ‘bubbles’ throughout the week, as they currently are within nursery/school. This will mean that we can only accept full week bookings, rather than being able to choose specific days each week.

Will you offer a refund if the camp has to be cancelled?

In the event that we need to cancel a camp session due to lack of demand or government-imposed guidelines, a full refund will be provided.

What if I need to change or cancel my booking?

We ask that you provide us with a minimum of 48hrs’ notice should you need to cancel your camp booking. Cancellation of bookings will only be refunded in exceptional circumstances, such as a child needing to isolate due to Covid-19 and upon receipt of a Dr’s note.

What happens if it rains?

We have adequate undercover space to continue camps should weather become inclement.

How much do camps cost?

Full week rate  Standard week Early drop-off 8.30 – 10.30am Late pick-up
4pm-6pm
Members  £196  £60  £60
Non-members  £260  £80  £80

How do I book?

Please fill out the enquiry form here or contact our team at chiswick@maggieandrose.com

What happens if someone shows symptoms of COVID-19

We ask that any child who is unwell remains at home and does not attend camp. We will monitor children and staff closely for any symptoms of coronavirus. This will include daily temperature checks.

As per current government guidelines, should a team member or a child within the bubble contract Covid-19 or display symptoms of the virus, they will be required to self-isolate for 14 days. We will, of course, offer credit or a refund for any days missed upon receipt of a Dr’s note.
