SIMPLE BOOKING PROCESS
With online and telephone booking, it’s really simple to book a place for your child at Kingswood Camps. There are a number of payment options available, making it easier to spread the cost.
Childcare vouchers are only accepted at our Overstrand Hall, West Runton & Isle of Wight centres.
At the time of booking a deposit of £40 per child per week is required. The remainder of the balance will be due on set dates within 56 days of arrival. If the booking is made after the balance due date then full payment will be required at the time of booking.
When booking you have the option of spreading the cost over several months. Online booking payments are made by credit* or debit card. Bank transfers can be made for telephone bookings, using your child’s surname as a booking reference and sending to:
Kingswood Learning and Leisure Group Ltd,
St James & Piccadilly Branch
Sort code: 56-00-03
Account number: 79206352
* Credit card payments are subject to a 2% fee, up to a maximum of £30 per transaction.
We cannot process childcare vouchers through our online booking system so please call us to book using childcare vouchers.
Please note that we only accept payments for pocket money by cheque, credit/debit card* or BACS transfer, alternatively you can give your child money to take to camp. We are unable to accept payments for pocket money from Childcare voucher providers. Please be aware that any overpayments or pocket money payments received from a Childcare Voucher provider will be refunded directly to the Childcare voucher provider.
We understand the challenges busy parents face in finding fun, safe and inspiring school holiday activities for children and teens.
Kingswood Camps offers an alternative and affordable childcare solution for 8-17 year olds throughout the school holidays.
You can choose to pay for all or part of your child’s Kingswood Camps holiday using childcare vouchers.
We request that a deposit of £40 per child per week is paid upfront. Full payment will be requested prior to arrival on payment dates detailed above. Card payments (less fees) will be refunded when Childcare vouchers have been received.
We are unable to accept childcare vouchers for children going to Colomendy or Grosvenor Hall.
Please note we are unable to accept payments for pocket money from Childcare voucher providers. Please be aware that any overpayments or pocket money payments received from a Childcare Voucher provider will be refunded directly to the Childcare voucher provider.

National childcare register
The Childcare Register is for providers in England who care for children up to the age of 17. The register is in two parts, with compulsory and voluntary registrations depending on the type of provision. Our holiday centres at Dukeshouse Wood, West Runton, Overstrand and Isle of Wight are on the voluntary register and comply with the requirements for childcare providers on non-domestic premises. Inclusion on the Childcare Register requires us to meet national standards on child welfare and safeguarding arrangements, the suitability of our teams, the safety of our premises, the organisation of our provision and communication with parents and with Ofsted. Further information about the registration system can be found at www.ofsted.gov.uk.
The safety and welfare of the children in our care is our highest priority. We commit to:
- Recruiting only those suitable to work with children
- Completing backgrounds checks through the Disclosure and Barring Service
- Having a Designated Safeguarding Children Officer at each of our camps
- Providing safeguarding training for all staff who have close contact with children
- Operating reporting systems for anyone to raise a concern
If any problems should arise during your child’s stay, the matter should be reported to the camp manager as soon as possible to give us the opportunity to put things right. If it is not resolved you should write to us within 28 days of the end of the holiday and we will endeavour to find a satisfactory solution.
If you do not feel we have resolved your concern, and your child has attended one of our registered camps, you can report it directly to Ofsted by writing to:
