Every year is different. Some years we can have 60, some years we can have 160. On 2015’s camp, we had 85 children join us.
No, we provide any specialist equipment required. Once you have booked a place on camp we send a detailed booklet informing parents and guardians of what a child needs to bring with them.
Please call us on 0113 812 5233 for advice on funding a place on Camp. The advice we give you will depend on where you live. We can give you ideas and help that other parents have tried in the past. Unfortunately, we are not able to give discounts or offer any grants towards the cost.
Unfortunately not. However, please call us on 0113 812 5233 as we may be able to give you help on the funding options available in your area.
All staff are CRB/DBS checked before they start working on the programme. They already have, or are studying towards, qualifications in nutrition, dietetics, sport and exercise science, teaching, psychology or a similar field. They also participate in a week-long intensive training programme, on the job training, regular observations, weekly appraisals and daily and weekly team meetings. Staff also have first aid qualifications, lifeguard qualifications and coaching qualifications.
No. Our services don’t fall under Ofsted requirements. However, we do abide by National Institute of Clinical Excellence, Department of Health and Public Health England guidelines for weight management services. We are also commissioned by and deliver services to the NHS and local authorities across the country. Alongside this, MoreLife Camp was recognised in the foresight report and the chief executive of the NHS report as a model of good practice. It was also accredited by the Department of Health in 2009 as a model of choice, having gone through a rigorous evaluation process and it adheres to NICE guidelines.
Sunday 23th July – Saturday 26th August 2017
The minimum booking period for a place on Camp is two weeks, either as a residential or day camper. This is the minimum time that we feel will be effective to help a child start to achieve weight-loss goals. However, we know that the longer a child is able to stay with us on camp, the better the longer-term impact and results will be.
Please call the MoreLife Camp office on 0113 812 5233 and one of our friendly operatives will assist you.
No, no one is forced to do anything they don’t want to do. However, they will be encouraged to try new activities and improve their fitness levels. Our staff always work with children on a one-to-one basis to understand any specific worries or concerns about a particular exercise and help them overcome this.
Every year, half way through the five-week camp, we invite parents or family friends to come and spend time with their children on camp. This will be your opportunity to see how your children have got on. You’ll meet the staff and we’ll hold workshops to show you exactly what we’ve been doing on camp, plus we’ll be running some group activities for the whole family to benefit on when you get home.
“Last year’s campers lost between two and six pounds per week.”
