My daughter had tremendous fun and looked forward to activities the following day. An added bonus was a quiet night for us. She was worn out!
Emanuel School provides first-class sporting facilities in a venue situated in the heart of London. Activ Camps operates out of the school’s impressive sports centre and we have the use of extensive playing fields, an indoor rock wall, a swimming pool (available October 2023!), a dance studio and a drama hall.
This camp is very popular and fills to capacity, so booking early is recommended.
Please note that there is no vehicle access to the school site. There is parking available for parents along Spencer Park, very close to the school entrance.
Camp phone line: 07519 976 950
Please note this number is only available when the camp is in operation.
Lunch – All children will need to bring a packed lunch, to keep the energy up for the non-stop fun throughout the day!
Snacks – Children are given the opportunity to have snack time during the two break times throughout the day, please pack additional items to their packed lunch. We also have a small tuck shop with cereal bars and juice boxes, each item costs 50p.
Allergens on camp – Activ Camps is, unfortunately, unable to completely control the presence of allergens on camp. Of course, we have members of our team trained to respond to allergic reactions, including the administering of auto-adrenaline injectors, and have a robust medication policy in place. Our staff are also instructed to regularly remind children not to share food. Parents and carers are encouraged, for the safety of all children on site, to avoid sending their children to camp with foods that include prevalent food allergens. These include nuts, eggs, shellfish and chickpeas. Please click here to learn more about food allergens.
Swimming Kit – Although we won’t be swimming this summer, when the weather’s hot, we love to get outside for Water Fight Mania so please pack a kit for this in addition to the spare clothes!
Please always ensure that your belongings are clearly labelled with your child’s name. If lost, we will then be able to return them to you. We do not advise that you send your children to camps in expensive clothing.
08.30 – 09.15
16:30 – 17:00
Please note, to help ensure a safe sign in procedure, some waiting time can be expected to drop off/pick up your child, especially at the beginning of the week.
We also provide a late pick up service which you can add to your booking at checkout. Timings and pricing are below.
Late Pick Up: 17:00 – 18:00 – £6.00.
If you are arriving outside of the designated drop-off and collection timings, please wait at the security gate and call the team on 07519 976 950. A longer wait can be expected when the camp is in operation.
Each day there will be three designated Early Collection slots and, if you need to pick up early, we ask that you choose the slot that suits you best, recording your child’s name and age on the appropriate form (see below as an example). Our colleagues on site will then, just prior to your chosen time slot, collect your child and their belongings before walking them up to the school entrance, ready for a prompt sign out.
If you arrive outside of this timeslot or fail to notify us of your intention to pick up early, you should expect a significant wait, potentially up to 30 minutes. Whilst it may seem simple enough to quickly collect one child, it is a lot more complicated due to the size of the site, the number of groups, the need to respond to first aid and behavioural incidents, complete activity observations, etc.
Designated Early Collection Slots:
1300 – 1315
1430 – 1435
1530 – 1545
Between 1550 – 1630, we will not be able to accommodate any early collection.
Medication form: Your child(ren) will not be able to join if we do not have the correct, and in-date, medication for them.
Please complete the Medication Form in advance if you are bringing medication to camp.
Epipen form: If your child is bringing an Auto-Adrenaline Injector (Epipen), then you will need to fill in a different form.
With the wide range of allergens that there are, Activ Camps is, unfortunately, unable to completely control the presence of these on camp. Of course, we have members of our team trained to respond to allergic reactions, including the administering of auto-adrenaline injectors, and have a robust medication policy in place. Our staff are also instructed to regularly remind children not to share food.
The entrance to Emanuel School is via Spencer Park Bridge. After crossing the bridge, turn right and walk down the drive towards the field. Our sign-in and out desks will be situated here with our team to ready greet you and your children. Please remember that anyone collecting must bring a form of identification.

If you would like your child to be with a friend, please be aware that grouping requests must be made at sign in. You will be directed to our grouping forms to write down your request, so please ensure it is written down.
Since groups are created daily, please ensure to repeat your request each morning to the staff on site. Please note that due to the complex nature of groupings we cannot always accommodate every grouping request.
If you are arriving later than 09:15am it will be very unlikely that we can accommodate your grouping request as groups may already be full.
Swimming returns this October 2023!
This activity is available subject to the availability of the swimming pool on site.
Whilst we aim to run sessions daily, due to our safety policies, not every group on camps swims each day. To guarantee swimming during the regular day, we recommend you book at least two-three consecutive days on camp.
If swimming is unavailable we will always continue to provide a wonderfully wide range of activities.
Please ensure you check that your child has all of their belongings before leaving the premises.
Lost property is collected and placed on a table next to the sign-out desk every day. If you have lost an item, please ask a member of staff on camp to view our lost property.
If you are not returning to the site again, please call the site phone number found under ‘Camp Contact Details’ to check if your item has been found.
We ask that all lost property be collected from the site before the final Friday of the camp season.
Whilst it gives everyone great joy to see your happy furry friends, dogs are not permitted on site.
If you are driving please park on Spencer Park and then walk into the school where we will welcome you to Activ Camps!
Bookings cannot be reserved. They can only be confirmed once payment has been received.
