Children should bring a packed lunch (hot meals are available at the Reading Blue Coat camp), some snacks and a water bottle. In warm weather, please include an ice pack in the lunch box as refrigeration facilities are not available.

Children should wear suitable clothing to participate in physical activities. Trainers are essential and we would encourage parents to put their child’s name in each piece of clothing in case it gets misplaced.
Please bring a swimming costume, towel and goggles every day.

We are not allowed to administer sun cream to your child without the parent’s permission so please bring sun cream and a hat for protection. The staff will regularly remind the children to put sun cream on.

Star Hotshots provide all the equipment for every activity and there is no need for children to bring their own. Some children do bring their own tennis racket etc but Star Hotshots cannot be held responsible if it goes missing or is broken, sorry.

If children need to bring mobile phones or any other valuables with them to camp they should hand them in at the beginning of the day to their coach where it will be locked away.

If you inform Star Hotshots up to five days before your child’s first day at camp that they are unable to attend a full refund is provided. If your child is unable to attend on the day due to injury or illness Star Hotshots offer you a credit note.

Yes. Star Hotshots adhere to OFSTED child/staff ratio numbers and therefore have staff in reserve should we receive a number of late bookings. However, we do request you book as early as possible to avoid disappointment as we cannot 100% guarantee we are able to accept your child if you decide to turn up on the day.

Please call us on 0845 301 0450 or contact us and we would be very happy to answer any of your questions.
