Elf Graduation
On the last day of Big Kids Camp our elves will graduate from The School of Elf at Maggie & Rose, but before we do we need to sit our final elf-xam.
From wrapping presents to belting out carols, have you got what it takes to pass the test and become the newest elf in Santa's workshop?
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. 18 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
– children may not bring toys or other items from home

Increased sanitisation and cleaning
– regular hand-washing will be encouraged throughout the day
– increased cleaning shifts, including between sessions
– sanitisation stations

When will camps run?

Camp sessions will run Monday to Friday from 13th December until 24th December. Camps will start at 10.30am and finish at 4.00pm.
Early drop-off and late pick-up options are also available.

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.
