Summer camps

For International School Children.

Most Schools will not be running their summer schools this year. We are the organization that many schools turn to when they need a safe and high-quality outdoor education camp so we are ideally placed to bridge the gap in this year of COVID. We are offering two 7 day camps in July based at Petcharat Camp in Saraburi, just 2 hours from Bangkok. These will be run following the best advice on preventing the spread of COVID-19 and will therefore be limited to 20 participants each camp so we can work with small groups and comply with social distancing protocols. A registered nurse will be one of our team.

The camp will run classes in the mornings with related activities in the afternoons. Classes will be taught by an international school teacher with 40 years teaching experience in 9 countries. Pastoral care will be provided by an International school ex-housemaster and ex housemistress. For a detailed program click the button.

 

In 2019 we ran great y 5 to y 13 camps for: ISB - Regents Bangkok - Regents Pattaya - Bromsgrove - Ruamrudee - Headstart - St. Andrews - Traill - Kissamee IS - Bangkok Prep - Panyarat HS - Ascot - Scouts troop 701 - ISB Girl guides.

Cost and booking procedure.

The basic price for the 7 day camp is 19,500 Baht inclusive of activities and instruction, air-conditioned en-suite accommodation, all meals, local transport, insurance.

DISCOUNTS.

Early booking. Book before 1 July for reduced price of 17,500

How to book. Send an e-mail to info@bigoutdoorsthailand.com [click the link] letting me know the name(s) and age(s) of your child(ren) and your preferred dates. I will send you an application form and payment details. The number of children is limited to 20 on either camp due to the COVID precautions we must take so a place is not confirmed until your payment has been received. Children who don't get onto their first choice camp will be offered a place on the alternative one. 

CANCELLATIONS. Cancellations up to 1st  July for camp 1 and 7th July for camp 2 - we will refund your payment in full. After that and up to 3 days before the camp we will return 60% of the camp fees. No refunds will be given in the last 3 days except for medical reasons accompanied by a medical certificate.

COVI-19. The above does not apply to suspected CV-19 infection. Any child with elevated temperature, a new cough, difficulty breathing or loss of sense of smell in the 14 days prior to the camp should be taken to a medical facility for testing. A full refund will be given under those circumstances.

Safety

We have an excellent safety record and have already run camps in March during the COVID period.

  • Petcharat Camp is a secure location with our group the sole occupants.

  • We only use one van company with approved drivers who have been trained by us to work with school groups and children. We will have a responsible adult on each van in addition to the driver.

  • Van and room occupancy will be limited to allow for distancing. i.e. middle seats empty in vans and 3children in a room for 6 with alternate empty beds.

  • Staff are all social distancing and limiting contacts to immediate family. Any employee with any flu like symptoms in the 14 days before the camp will not be used.

  • Activity groups will be kept to half of the normal and suitable spacing will be observed in dining areas and class-rooms.

  • Meals will be prepared by our own staff who will wear masks and gloves. Children will self serve with their own spoons etc..

  • We will not provide cups or glasses. Each camper will get a new water bottle at the beginning of the camp and will use that throughout. No sharing.

  • Plates and other eating utensils will be sterilised before each use. Surfaces in the rooms and the vehicles will be wiped down with disinfectant daily.

  • All activities have been risk assessed and done before with groups of a similar age. Instructors have first aid qualifications and are experienced and trained to deliver their activities safely. (Risk assessments available on request.)

  • Overnight supervision will be the responsibility of Mr and Mrs Mallia. Mr Mallia has been Head of Boarding programmes in several schools including Regents Pattaya and Mrs Mallia has been Head of House and Matron in boarding houses in schools in Scotland and Africa.

  • The company has a comprehensive Child Protection Policy and Emergency Procedures policy which can be seen by clicking the links. All employees have recent Police Clearance documents for working with children.
