Parents Info

We have tried to make these web pages as comprehensive as possible. The following section may answer a few questions you may have.

If there is anything else you would like to know please e mail springoscars@actionforchildren.org.uk


OSCARS provides breakfast (cereals, toast and fruit juice) up until 8.30am, and a mid-morning and mid-afternoon snack break which varies from day to day but will always include fruit, non-fizzy juice and water.

Please provide your child with a packed lunch.  Parents should ensure lunch boxes contain a freeze block to comply with food hygiene guidelines.

Health matters

During the online registration process you will be asked to complete a confidential medical and consents form for each child attending. This is an important document.

If booking by telephone you will be sent a copy of the form via e mail. This should be completed and returned to OSCARS at least one week prior to attendance.

OSCARS employ a number of first aiders who are on site each day to tend to minor bumps and bruises.

Clothes & activities

We recommend that children wear practical and comfortable clothing: e.g. shorts and t-shirts, jeans and sweatshirts depending on the weather. In hot weather a cap and sun cream can be useful.

Theme days will take place each FRANTIC FAB FIZZING FRIDAY and these will be publicised at camp reception from each Monday.

Times, starts & departures

Formal activities commence at 9.20am and finish at 5.00pm but children can arrive from 8.00am and stay until 5.50pm at no extra charge.

For children arriving between 8am and 8.30am OSCARS will provide a breakfast of cereal and toast plus drink.

Between 8am and 9 am and then 5pm and 5.50pm supervised passive activities such as board games and films are offered.

Lost property & valuables

OSCARS recommends that you do not bring valuable items to our programmes such as iPads or computer games or expensive phones – for a start there will not be time to use them.

Staff cannot be responsible for such items and OSCARS will accept no liability for loss or damage.

All lost property is kept for one month after the end of each holiday programme and then if not reclaimed is donated to charity.


OSCARS pays a great deal of attention to security at our centres.

Anyone visiting our sites receives a visitor badge from the management team on being admitted.

Each centre has clearly defined boundaries and all staff wear OSCARS t shirts and an ID lanyard making them easily identifiable.

All children have to be signed in and out by a parent or guardian who is listed on the initial registration form.

Children can sign themselves in and out only if OSCARS receives a signed letter of authorisation from a parent.

All staff go through a rigorous recruitment process including full Disclosure check via the PVG (Protection of Vulnerable Groups) membership scheme and no member of staff works with children in our care until they are cleared to do so by the relevant authorities.  Nothing matters more to us than the safety and well being of all children in our care.

Long days & tiredness

OSCARS understands that particularly young children can tire as the day goes on.

Therefore regular breaks are built into the schedule and active sessions are intermingled with passive sessions.

Each centre has a quiet corner where children can retreat to if necessary and whilst time spent at OSCARS is highly active there is always a space to have fun more quietly.

Quieter / shyer children

OSCARS staff are experienced in enabling children to relax, feel at ease and join in.

Group activities take place at the start of each day so that children mix and communicate and socialise from the moment activities commence.

Children not so keen on sport

A lot of children claim not to enjoy sport but all children love running around, playing games and participating in activities such as art, clay modelling, dance and drama.

The priority at an OSCARS multi activity camp is to have fun and join in and our staff are specialists at encouraging children to do exactly this.

Late bookings

OSCARS caps the numbers who can attend each of our centres on a daily basis, and we do become full during specific weeks.

Early booking is recommended. However, we completely understand that schedules can change so we can accept late bookings depending on availability.

OSCARS & childcare vouchers

OSCARS is registered with a wide range of voucher companies and they can be used for full or part payment for almost all of our holiday programmes. OSCARS can also take payment via your tax free childcare account.

Simply e mail springoscars@actionforchildren.org.uk

Consecutive weekly bookings

Many children enjoy attending OSCARS for a number of weeks in their holidays.

Due to the large range of activities, and different theme days no week is the same. There is always variety and something new to try.

Coming to OSCARS from abroad

OSCARS welcomes children from throughout the world who are on holiday near to our centres.

Our centres provide great opportunities for foreign children to mix with British children and communicate in English whilst participating in a fun filled day.

Certificates & awards

Everybody who attends OSCARS receives at least one OSCARS certificate in recognition of their progress throughout their time with us. This is presented by our groovy mascot – OSCAR – on a Friday afternoon to weekly leavers.
