FAQs - The Essentials


What will my child get to eat on the camp?

Cumulus Outdoors will provide the food throughout the camp, so no need for a packed lunch! There will be a set menu prior to the camp commencement. All packed lunches are made on-site by the students. All dietary and religious requirements are catered for and we strictly have a no nut on camp policy.

What equipment will my child need?

There will be a kit list sent out to all students. We do stress that it is not necessary to go out and buy all new kit to come on our camps.
So long as you have a sleeping bag and roll mat, torch, appropriate footwear and some warm clothes you will be fine.

Will there be someone ‘on call’ through the night?

A Cumulus policy on all camps is that two members of staff will remain under the main canvas overnight (not in a tent), with a lantern or light on during the night. Should any students have any problems during the night, it is made very easy and clear where the students need to go to find help.

How many staff will be working on the camp?

We typically have a 1:12 ratio, sometimes we exceed this to 1:15 depending on the age of the students.

Will there be qualified first aiders on site?

All staff are first aid qualified, Enhanced DBS checked as well as Level 2 Health and Hygiene qualified.
All instructors on the activity sessions are appropriately qualified and their qualifications often exceed the minimum requirement.

Thank you!

It was a lovely week. Thanks for everything that you did for the children. I don't always think the children appreciate at times the information/guidance/experience we as staff or as an instructor give them, however, I think with this group in particular they lapped up everything and will in most cases aim to try and make a difference to what they will and can/should do.
Your instruction and care of the children with regards their paddle skills, safety and their own personal development is exceptional. Thank you. Tom played a huge part in that too.
