Can I use childcare vouchers?

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

How old does my child have to be to attend?

  • Children must be between primary 1 and secondary 1 for most camps, but please see specific camp / activity details for full information. Children should not be booked in to camps / activities unless they have already started P1 at the time of booking; for example, those starting school after summer 2019, should only be booked into October 2019 camps onwards.

What does my child need to bring with them?

  • Your child should bring a packed lunch with them to any camps or activities that operate all day / over lunch.
  • For Get active Kids Camps: If your child is swimming that day they will require their costume / trunks, a towel etc. and if your child cannot swim two lengths of the pool unaided you will be required to provide arm bands for them to wear.
  • For Gymnastics: please bring a water bottle, and ensure your child is wearing suitable clothing with no jewellery and long hair tied up.
