With Kingswood Camps staff supervision all the way to and from the camp, our Escorted Travel is a popular choice with many parents which also allows your child’s camp experience to start early as they will be socialising with fellow campers before even arriving on camp!
Choose from one of our meeting points, where your child will be signed in and transferred to the camp accompanied by our staff. On the return, all children are taken back to the meeting point, where our staff accompanying the children and transport team in the office will remain on duty until all children are collected. Places for our Sunday transport service fill up fast, so we’d recommend reserving your spot early - call us on 0800 655 6560 or book online.

Please remember that all flight arrival and departure times must be between the specified times. We have an Airport Co-Ordinator based at the airport from the first arrival to the last departure.

If your flight departure or check in time is outside of these hours, we can make alternative arrangements on your behalf, please read the flight out of hour’s section.
Flights departing Heathrow from West Runton or Overstrand please note:
1) The coach will be departing early morning and there will only be one vehicle
2) Your child might be at the airport for a long duration depending on the flight departure time
3) Refreshments will be supplied and your child will never be unattended
Flights out of hours
We understand that it is not always possible to book flights inside our arrival and departure times. In these instances we can offer a range of solutions:
If you are happy for your child to wait until our staff arrive, please be aware that Kingswood Camps are unable to accept any responsibility for the safety, interim care and wellbeing of your child until they are met by our staff in the arrivals hall at our published time of 9am. If your child is travelling as an unaccompanied minor you will need to make appropriate arrangements with the airline for continuity of care until the start time of our published airport operation. If you would like to make independent arrangements for their onward journey to the camp, Kingswood Camps are able to book a private taxi transfer, please contact us on +44 (0) 1603 309370 for details of the costs and to make these arrangements.
If your flight departs after our published airport operating times, please be advised that Kingswood Camps will be unable to check your child in for their departing flight and will therefore be unable to offer an airport service. Kingswood Camps are able to book a private taxi transfer, please contact us on +44 (0) 1603 309370 for details of the costs and to make these arrangements.
For children travelling from outside the UK, we offer an Escorted Travel service to our Grosvenor Hall camp via Eurostar between Paris Gare du Nord and Ashford International.
If you wish to book this service, please call the Kingswood Camps team on +44 (0) 1603 309370.
If you are travelling to our Isle of Wight, Overstrand or West Runton Camp, you can book your child to travel unescorted on the Eurostar to Ebbsfleet International and make use of our coach transfer to these camps. We will need to know all the details of the Eurostar service your child will be using before we can confirm your booking on our connecting service.
Children under 12 year olds must travel with a responsible person aged 16 or older. 12 to 15 year olds can travel on their own, as long as they've got a fully completed Eurostar Unaccompanied Minor Form.
