A. That's part of the fun of camp - trying something new! You can pick any activity to do at camp - just make sure Mum and Dad tell us that you haven't done it before on your application form so we know this.
Q. Can I bring ipods/game consoles/mobile phones to camp?
A. Camp Blue is "Unplugged" - meaning we want you to turn off from technology that you use each day and instead, make new friends and connect with the outdoors! Electrical devices aren't allowed at Camp Blue and will be held in the office if they are brought to camp. If you need to bring a mobile phone to and from camp, you can hand it into the office when you arrive and collect at the end of the day.
