We take children between the ages of 6 and 10. Anyone can nominate a child for consideration.
There are 2 reasons we will consider a child for a free holiday:
- The child would not normally get another holiday
- We believe the child would benefit from one of our holidays.
Yes, we are happy to take children more than once if they meet the two conditions above and are still 10 or under.
We run a weekly bus service to take all our children to our Holiday Centre and return. We pick up in Leicester, Loughborough and Melton.
If your child is ill, we will inform you and seek immediate medical advice and provide transport to local medical facilities.
If your child wants to come home, we will contact you to discuss your wishes and those of your child. If you wish, you may collect your child at any time (upon provision of proper identification and authority).
Each child’s medication is kept separately and given out by our staff as prescribed.
We ask parents to pay £20 towards the cost of transport for each child. Everything else is free.
Your child will be bussed to and from our Mablethorpe Centre; all meals and activities, as well as visits to the cinema, Pleasure Island, etc. are included free.
We have a full programme of activities – games, sports, visits to the cinema, shops, trips to Pleasure Island, circus, the beach and, of course, our own adventure playground.
Our Centre Manager is highly qualified and experienced and all activity staff are vetted and DBS checked. They receive specific health and safety and child care training before starting work with the children. We have a comprehensive CCTV system protecting the grounds and playground. We have a dedicated Childline telephone in the centre.
