RAIN FORECAST = NO CAMP
PLEASE READ BEFORE REGISTERING
Camp Gems Winter 2021 is subject to Covid-19 Restrictions & Weather (Since this camps trips are all outdoors).
In the event of a rain forecast, we will unfortunately cancel that day of camp.
In usual circumstances backup trips are planned for a last-minute rainy day. However, due to venue capacity limits (due to covid-19 restrictions), venues will not hold space nor will a last minute change of trip be guaranteed.
If camp does not go ahead that day, a full refund will be sent that day.
If you are relying on camp Gems for child care, please reconsider or arrange a backup plan in the event of rain.
Thank you for your understanding.
