Stanley Head Summer Activities

Just want to let you know that the good news is Stanley Head are delivering summer activities!

We’ll be leaping into action on Monday 27 July and will run for five weeks. We have of course made a few changes to ensure we keep everyone safe and meet current government guidance, but first – here’s what hasn’t changed:

  • Same price  -for the fifth year in a row, only £25 per person per day.
  • Same 5 Day discount. £110 for five days booked at the same time.
  • Same times – 9.15 to 4 every day.
  • Same optional early  day drop off from 8.15 (Same price at £3.00).
  • Same great venues including a Peak District day each week.
  • Payment can still be made over the phone, or by cheque. We will accept cash if you are passing but please call in advance to check the office is open.

So what has changed?

  • The age range has been extended slightly to 7-14 year olds.
  • Group sizes will be smaller – 5 children to one instructor, or in some cases 4 to 2.
  • Overall capacity has been reduced each day.
  • 5 day discounts will now only apply to the SAME week. This is to encourage consistency of children where possible.
  • Some of our activities may not be possible under current restrictions so rather than restrict options to a set timetable we believe that this year it will work better to tailor the activities to the children that are booked on. Each week will see a great balance of all our available activities.
  • Booking has changed slightly due to the shorter-than-usual notice, see below.

What else are we doing to protect your children from Covid-19?

  • The centre will be deep cleaned at the end of every day and regular daily cleans will be increased.
  • Where possible, equipment will be allocated to the same child for the day or even week.  Where not possible, equipment will be sanitised after each use.
  • Each group will have their own toilet areas, where plenty of soap and warm water will always be available.
  • Plenty of hand sanitiser will be available at all times when offsite and proper toilet and hand washing facilities will be visited at lunch time.
  • All activities will be delivered in such a way that children and instructors can stay at least 1m apart.
  • We are asking you NOT to send your child should they develop symptoms of Covid-19, or if they have been in close contact with someone that has recently developed symptoms.
  • We are asking parents to maintain a safe distance between each other when dropping off and collecting, and where possible leave other siblings and family members in the car during these times.
  • Children will be kept in the same groups where possible each week.

What next?

If anyone would like to book their child onto any of the days, please arrange for them to email directly with their contact number and child’s details (full name, date of birth and address). Make sure they also state the dates they would like to book.

We will then contact them to arrange payment, and exchange further information.

If anyone as any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the centre, we’d be very happy to help.

Best wishes,

The Stanley Head team
