Accommodation for Residential Campers


Our boarding facilities are fantastic with dedicated boarding staff to offer excellent around the clock pastoral care. The boarding houses have common areas ideal for socialising and sharing the experiences of the day. There are arranged activities in the evening and the use of a small kitchenette to offer a real 'home from home' experience.

All staff receive in-depth training in Child Safeguarding, Welfare and First Aid. The Camp Director will be the main point of contact for families with any issues or concerns and the Head of Boarding will be available ‘after hours’ to assist with any concerns.

The boarding house used for our Senior students is a large space with a combination of single, twin and triple bedrooms in each 'wing' - one for the boys and one for the girls. The Juniors are in a smaller boarding house or in 'The Loft' at the Mansion house, but both have large common areas where students can spend time together. Campers will always room with someone of a similar age and gender and we do our best to acommodate special requests (ie sharing with a friend). We will encourage students to keep their rooms tidy so that they do not lose any of their personal items. Residential students will receive 3 meals a day plus snacks in the boarding house. The housekeeping team will clean the bathrooms daily and offer a laundry service for personal items and bedding on Friday.

The boarding team are on hand 24 hours a day to support our students with an on-site dedicated first aider, welfare and emotional resilience coach. Each camper will be allocated a mentor for the duration of their stay on camp and our friendly and supportive staff are available on email and the duty phone.

 

Excursions around the UK


During the course of your two-week stay at Reddam House Summer Camp, you will have two full day excursions. Examples of these will be a day trip to London to take in the sites on an open topped bus and discover the history of the UK’s capital city, or a day trip to the historic town of Windsor to walk the Long Walk, discover the delightful shops in Windsor Town Centre and take a tour of the famed castle.

Residential campers will also have the opportunity to have a full day of water sports at one of our local centres including an Aqua Park and Water Activities; water rafting, canoeing, paddle boarding and inflatable fun.

Frequently Asked Questions


We work on a 1:10 ratio

Nano Camp 1:8 ratio

We have two boarding houses at the school called Drake and Blake house. These have a selection of single, twin and triple bed rooms with a mixture of ensuite, ‘Jack and Jill’ bathrooms and shared shower blocks. There is also a boarding suite in the main mansion house called 'The Loft' where some students may be housed depending on age and gender.

Room distribution is usually based on gender, age and ensuring a mix of nationalities and maintaining the international feel of the camp. If a family expresses a wish for campers to be roomed together we will try to accommodate this as far as is possible

Yes, all our residential campers have a weekly laundry service and there are washing machines available in the boarding houses should they be necessary.

Our camp is fully inclusive, so there is no need to spend anything extra. There is an option for additional private lessons in English, Maths, Swimming, Tennis and Dance. These lessons would be taken in student free time or in place of evening activities.

Transfers are available on arrival and departure from London Heathrow or Gatwick airport between the hours of 11.00 and 15.00 on Sunday arrivals and between 10.00 and 14.00 on Saturday departures. Flight transfers required outside of these times may incur additional costs or require individual taxis.

We work on a 1:10 ratio. Activity session ratios will vary based on the activity in sports groups, but it will always be low.

The official language of the camp is English and we will encourage all students to engage in the English language as much as possible.

We propose between £25 - £50 per week depending on the students age and if they might want to buy small gifts for their return. Children will have the opportunity to spend money on excursions and town visits. Cash or spending cards should be signed in at the start of your camp with the residential team, where they will be stored securely.  Funds will be allocated to the students the evening before the excursion.

Our team oversees the allocation of rooms based on gender and age while also considering the campers’ well-being. We listen and make every effort to accommodate everyone.

Due to possible allergies, we ask that campers do not bring their own snacks, unless it is for specific dietary requirements, in which case please let the staff know before arrival. The Camps staff reserve the right to remove / confiscate any snacks that are considered to be ‘of risk’ to another student with allergies.  These can be returned at the end of camp.

Yes our campers can call parents in their free time. There are boarding department phones students can use to make or receive calls from parents if they don’t have their own.

Each day camper should bring the following items with them in a backpack: filled water bottle, sunscreen, swimsuit and towel, good sports shoes and a waterproof jacket. A full packing list will be issued in your Welcome Pack.

We ask that day campers do not bring valuable items to camp.

Residential campers are asked to sign in their mobile devices at the end of each day when they will be placed on charge overnight. They can then sign them back out and use them during free time and after dinner, but we will request that they are put away overnight and looked after by the boarding team once again. Students may use their mobile devices on excursions and at the weekend. It is suggested that students do not bring any valuables to camp such as ipods, consoles, video games or other electronic devices. If they do the boarding team will collect them on the day of arrival to encourage the child’s socialisation with the rest of the campers and prevent using these devices and isolating themselves from the group.

International students attending Global Camps will be required to undertake our Language Assessment before arriving at camp. This will ensure that all students are allocated to the correct teaching group and staff will be able to prepare sessions at the correct level of learning so as not to exclude them from enjoying their sessions each day. We recommend that all students have a basic knowledge and understanding of the English language to ensure that students can understand the basic safety and activity instructions. A simple questionnaire will be sent to all students before arrival. Groups will then be formed according to level and age (beginners, intermediate and advanced), reviewed within the first few days to make any necessary changes. Each student will receive a Student Report at the end of their stay with us.

Yes. Students from all over the world are welcomed to our Summer School Programmes. We encourage the international sharing of experiences.

We have an onsite first aider who will be responsible for the medical well being of each camper. In the event of illness, the student will be isolated from the rest of the students to avoid spread of any infection and in the event of significant illness medical professionals will be called. Parents will be contacted by the Camp team and kept updated with information.

In the event of homesickness or mental health issues, there is a qualified emotional resilience coach on site who will see all campers whenever necessary.

Students travelling from abroad should check whether a valid VISA and COVID status documentation is required and apply for this as soon as possible.
