Get active Multisport Camp FAQ


What do I need to pack for my child?
  • A packed lunch (plus snacks) – please inform us of any allergies.
  • A drinks bottle (water refills are available on site)
  • Wear appropriate clothing & footwear for sport
  • It is a good idea to pack spare clothing & footwear.
  • Any medical equipment like an inhaler.
How do I sign in/out?
  • Please come into Venue reception area where a member of our camp staff will greet you.
  • Make sure you complete the ‘Sign In’ and ‘Sign Out’ register each day. Whilst you do this, your child can drop their bag off and join in the games straight away or get involved in colouring games and activities, whilst we wait on others to arrive. Another coach will be with the children.
  • If you will be dropping off or collecting your child out with these time slots, please report to reception and inform a member of staff. They will contact the camp coaches and organise.
What happens if my child is ill?
  • Before camp – If your child is sick from a virus within 24hrs of the camp, we kindly ask that they do not attend camp that day. This is to minimise the risk of spreading the infection.
  • During camp – If your child becomes ill during the camp, we will contact you using the details on the camp registration form. Staff will discuss the best solution with you and action.
What happens if there’s any behavioural issues?
  • On day 1 of each camp, all participants and coaches contribute in a group exercise to produce a Camp Code. This works very well and sets out a safe, fair, fun environment for all.
  • If any unacceptable behavioural is picked up, then we operate a 3-strike system:
    • Verbal warning to the player
    • Verbal warning + player time out (parent/carer informed at the end of the day)
    • Phone call to parent/carer and discuss appropriate action (this is extremely rare!)
What happens if my child gets hurt?
  • A member of centre staff will administer First Aid
  • If the child is able enough to join back in with the group, they may do so.
  • You will be informed at the end of the day and given a slip to keep and sign off.
  • If the injury is more serious, such as a head knock, then parents/emergency contacts will be phoned immediately.
What does a typical camp day look like?
  • Camps are generally split into two groups (by age)
  • A camp day includes group games, sports coaching & competition, multi sports as well as break time activities.
  • Some of our multi sports: Football, Tennis, Athletics, Hockey, Basketball, Ball Games, and much more!
Are holiday camps included in my Get active for Less membership?

Yes – anyone with this type of membership is eligible for 50% off the cost of each holiday camp.

Can I pay for holiday camps with childcare vouchers?

As Sport Aberdeen’s holiday camps are an activity based service (and not daycare of children) it is not registrable by the Care Inspectorate under the Public Services Reform (Scotland) Act 2010. This means that we cannot accept childcare vouchers for this service.
