Camps

At Tigers we run camps for all mid-term breaks and for 6 weeks of the school summer holidays.

Camp Location & Opening Times

The camp will run from 7:30am-6pm daily.  The camps are held in St. Patrick’s National School, Diswellstown.

Number of Available Places

Places are strictly limited to 60 children per day. Places are given on a first come, first served basis. However, in the event that the camp is overbooked, preference will be given to regular users of Tigers Childcare.

What to Wear, Do and Bring

  • Children should wear comfortable layered clothes to allow for changeable weather conditions.
  • Children should wear safe footwear such as trainers.
  • During the summer months parents should apply sunscreen to their child in the morning before they come to camp & pack some sunscreen in their child’s bag each day.
  • Please have all clothing, equipment, backpack labeled with child’s name.
  • Your child will be participating in lots of fun but potentially messy activities so please provide a complete change of clothes in their backpack.
  • No money please – Tigers Childcare cannot be responsible for any money that is lost or stolen
  • Toys from home are allowed. However, Tigers Childcare cannot be held responsible for any toys lost or stolen during camp.

Snacks & Meals

Parents must provide their children with a small snack, packed lunch and drinks each day.  Snack time will be at approximately 11:00am with lunch taking place at 1:00pm or thereabouts.

Please refrain from packing crisps, sweets or soft drinks as we wish to keep treats to Fridays only.

Children who are staying until 6pm can avail of our hot dinner service or alternatively they can bring their own meals from home.

How to Book Your Child’s Place

You can pick up a camp registration form from a member of staff at the Tigers Childcare centre your child attends. Alternatively you can contact our office and they will be happy to send you a registration form.

Discipline

At Tigers we follow a philosophy of positive discipline. We aim to recognise good behavior and reward it accordingly i.e. star charts, praise, etc. We will develop rules with the children at the start of camp.  These rules will revolve around respect and responsibility. We will work diligently with the children and hope each of them will succeed in meeting new friends, learning new skills and having fun in a safe environment.

If a child were to repeatedly break rules, or cause harm or danger to themselves or others, we will speak with you immediately.  If we have exhausted all of our resources and still feel your child’s behaviour poses a risk to the safety of any child in our programme, we will ask that you remove them from the camp.
