  • Please be aware that we are a working farm, and that sensible clothing and footwear should be worn at all times. Some of the activities we can do outside, and some will be inside.
  • Please advise us of any additional information we may require about your child on the form when booking holiday camps including (but not limited to): allergies, phobias, medical conditions and additional learning needs.
