Adventurers - Monday 24th July to Friday 28th July: 9:30am till 3:30pm

Latest Update - 19th July

Thank you for signing your child/ children up for Adventurers 2017. They will be part of over 120 children joining us for the week (as well as a group of Americans from Briarwood Presbyterian Church, Alabama). Here are some more details about the week. There are notes attached to any events where your child may need to bring something specific or wear appropriate clothing or shoes.

 If for any reason your child is now not able to attend Adventurers for the whole week please can you let Alix know as soon as possible on 07762730762 as we do have a waiting list.

General

Please ensure that your child is sent with a packed lunch and a sufficient amount to drink each day. There are drinks breaks and refreshments provided each day but the weather at the moment is quite hot. Where appropriate please make sure your child is wearing sun cream before they come to Adventurers and pack extra if needed as well as a hat.

Please do not park in the church car park on any weekday during Adventurers as we have a lot of people, particularly children, using the site and want to do everything we can to keep the site safe for everyone.

Please can we also ask that children do not climb the large tree in the middle of the car park before or after Adventurers. We had a child miss a trip previously because they injured themselves in the tree whilst waiting to register in the morning and would like to prevent this happening again.

Registration will take place from 9.15 am on Monday 24th July. Please ensure that you join the appropriate queue (either alphabetical by surname or fast track for pre-paid). Children will be allowed in the building form 9.25 am each morning. If you are paying by cheque please can you make it out to HEADLEY PARK CHURCH. Both age groups will register at these desks on Monday and then in their age groups for the remainder of the week.

Our Parents’ café is back this year and is open every day from 2.30 pm with complimentary cakes, tea and coffee for parents and children too young for Adventurers. All parents are welcome to come to the café before picking their children up at 3.30pm (from the top doors for Juniors and the lower doors for Seniors).

As we do every year, we'll be going out on an Adventure each day and this is to let you know what we'll be doing.  We're sure they will be familiar to you but each one will have it's own Adventurers twist!

Monday - Juniors: Games in the Park; Seniors: Bowling*

Tuesday - Juniors: The Wild Place*; Seniors: Clifton Park

Wednesday - Juniors: Explorer Dome at HPC; Seniors: Laser Quest*

Thursday - Juniors: @Bristol*; Seniors: Freedog

Friday - Juniors: Blaise Castle*; Seniors: Swimming

On trips marked with a * children may wish to bring a small amount of spending money (no more than £5).

Please note that on Friday Seniors will need to bring swimming gear and a towel.

The day starts at 9.30 am and we finish at 3.30pm although parents are welcome to come earlier in the afternoon for the parents café.

See you on Monday!

17th July: For those in the Juniors

On the Monday of Adventurers, those in the Junior group will have the opportunity to choose two activities out of 11 possibilities.  To speed up the process of organising the children we would appreciate it if you could show what your child would like to do online.

13th July 2017

Next week we will send out a final details email for the week but this is to remind you that if you would like to cut your queuing time on Monday morning and join the fast-track queue then there are a couple of ways you can do this. 

1) Give any remaining money to Alix (either yourself or via your child) on a Friday night at Club! I am on the senior club registration desk in the lower hall of the main church building. This can be done on Friday 14th July (last Club/Epic session of the year).
Or
2) Put the money/ cheque addressed to Headley Park Church in an envelope with the name of your child on, addressed to Alix Dyer, Adventurers, and post through the church letterbox at the bottom of St. Peter's Rise. The last possible day for this is Friday 21st July.

Just a reminder on Adventurers payments:

Amount remaining after £20 deposit for:

1 child = £30
2 children = £60
3 children = £80

Individual days are £10 per child.
Thank you to everyone who has already done this. It really does make registration quicker and easier for our volunteers.
