There are also mid morning and mid afternoon snack/drink breaks. The times outlined are subject to change and are only a guideline.
will the pupils be given wetsuits?
For any activities were a wetsuit is required students will be lent one. There will also be mandatory bouyancy aids for activities at Camel Ski School and Camel Sailing School.
are staff expected to take part in activities?
We expect at least one member of the schools staff to be on hand at all times with the children but whether or not they choose to actively participate in sessions is up to them. It is not obligatory. We generally split the children into groups who will be supervised by one or two members of our team, as well as a member of staff from the school. Our team members will stay with their assigned group throughout the entire week, accompanying them to all actives.
There are 2 twin bedrooms and 1 double in each caravan. We recommend approximately 4 kids and 1 teacher per caravan, but it is to the schools discretion to arrange sleeping. Once groups arrive they will be able to see how it might fit the groups needs best.
