Virtual Camp

How will the Virtual Camps work?

Our Virtual Camps are all hosted on the online platform Zoom.

Once you have booked, you will be sent a confirmation email which will include the Zoom meeting details for you to access the Virtual Sessions.

The Zoom meeting details will remain the same throughout the duration of the Virtual Camp, so please make sure to keep them safe!

How much are the Virtual Camps to attend?

Oxford Active is dedicated to providing support for our partners and families wherever we can. We have been hit hard like many other providers and are doing our best to bring these online sessions to you for as little as possible.

Our Virtual Sessions are 2/3 days and will be 1 hour per day.

Virtual Camp Prices

Let’s Rock! Musical Theatre Workshop (3 Day Virtual Camp) – £20.00

Einstein’s Extreme! Science Workshop (2 day Virtual Camp) – £15.00

Our Virtual Camps work out as £5 per day and £5 for your Camp Kit!

 

What do I need to do before my Virtual Camp?

Please read carefully before joining your online session.

DO

– Ensure that your zoom profile name is your child’s first name only. Please do not include surnames for Data Protection purposes.

– Make sure that your video is on so that the teacher can see you during the class

 Find a space thats safe and gives you enough room

– Remove any personal items that you may wish to not be seen from your video background

– Be aware that we will be able to hear others in your household during the class

DONT

– Pass any Zoom class details on to anyone who has not booked a place with us

– Use the virtual background feature during class – this can be distracting when mid flow of a class

– Record any classes yourself. Classes are strictly not allowed to be recorded on any third party technology, including phones, laptops, screen recordings, iPads or any other camera devices. This is for the safety of the participants. Photos and Videos are allowed to be made of your own child only. Oxford Active has consent to record all zoom classes for safety and security purposes.

– Change your profile name during class – this can make it really hard for teachers to communicate with you during classes.

Please note – any inappropriate behaviour will result in you being removed from the class and unable to book any future classes with us. 

What are the benefits of learning online?

Unlike a school environment we offer classes associated with our Active Plus programme that challenges new skills, energises the room, boosts confidence, promotes gender neutral activity, and reduces stress levels.

  • We provide structure to the day with minimal disruption at a low-cost entry level.

 

  • We provide an accommodating, energetic and safe zone to stimulate all participants.

 

  • Everyone feels included with no discrimination.

 

  • We allow you to select your own learning by attending classes suited to you.

 

  • We allow you to work at your own pace with no pressure.

 

  • We allow you to communicate with others, developing and maintaining your social skills.

 

  • Not only will you develop emotionally, physically, and socially but you will also develop your ICT and technology skills.

 

  • The language used on delivery is age related and pitched accordingly to secure a child’s enjoyment and understanding.

 

  • Securing a young child’s welfare is our key priority so of all our staff are fully DBS checked with certificates.

What are the Camp Kits and how will I get one?

As part of our Virtual Camps, each participant will receive a ‘Camp Kit’ to use during their Virtual Camp sessions.

Included in the Camp Kit will be essential items that participants will need in order to join in the Virtual Camp sessions. Also included in the Camp Kits will be extra activity resources and goodies for you to keep!

On booking, you can choose to either pick up your Camp Kit from our designation location before the start date of your selected Virtual Camp OR you can choose to have your Camp Kit delivered to your home at a small extra fee.

Where is the pick up location?

You will be able to pick up your Camp Kit from our Central Holiday Camp, Summerfields School, located in Summertown, Oxford.

Parent Feedback So Far!

“Toby was so happy yesterday receiving his Star of the Day certificate. He was quite shy to begin with and never really did anything like this before but tried very hard and it was amazing to see him getting more confident by the minute! Huge thanks to Hattie (Little Visions and Showstoppers leader) for giving him the certificate and boosting his confidence!”

“I love the diversity of the 5 workshops that you have advertised along with musical theatre”

“My child loved it. Thank you for making him smile”

“The teacher for musical theatre was brilliant – so lively – energetic, full of everything good that dance/acting/singing should. Five stars to her!”

“We loved the science class and would definitely pay for that. The entertainer was very entertaining and engaging”

“So glad you are doing it, especially for the younger age group”
