All your child's personal property is your own responsibility, unless loss or damage is proven to be due to Futures Sports’ negligence. If anything is missing when your son or daughter leaves Camp please let the Camp Director know about it right away as there may still be time to find it before Camp closes down at the end of the season. Expensive and treasured items such as but not limited to jewellery, music players, mobile phones, designer clothes/shoes/trainers, etc., should not be brought to camp as they are often unnecessary and inappropriate on an activity holiday.
Some of our events include excursions and offsite activities. All our usual standards of care and supervision apply. All children may participate in off-site events unless we specifically receive written notification to the contrary from parents or guardians.
Some camps may not offer the full complement of activities listed due to site restrictions. Alternative activities will always be available. The timetables for certain activities are subject to alteration in the event of wet weather conditions, or other factors which are beyond our control. In the event sessions are cancelled due to safety reasons, or factors beyond our control, we will not be contractually obliged to give any refund, but we will look at every case on its own merits.
Holiday and travel arrangements are occasionally subject to change. Should this be necessary for any reason, Futures Sports will inform you at the earliest opportunity.
We accept responsibility for personal injury and for loss and damage generally, but only if caused by the proven negligence of the company or its employees. We do not accept responsibility for events which are outside of our direct control. These include (but not exclusively) force majeure events such as strikes, bad weather, war, etc. and injury, loss or damage that may occur while we are using third parties or subcontractors such as transportation companies.
In the unlikely event that a child experiences a problem or difficulty while at camp, the matter should be reported immediately to:
(a) The Camp Manager who has the authority and direct knowledge to deal with most queries.
(b) If he or she fails to resolve the difficulty to your satisfaction, then write to us at our Head Office within 10 days of your child leaving camp. We will only compensate complaints if both these conditions are met.
