Your Camp Induction Day will take place at your Super Camps venue.
For details of the February Induction Days please click here.
Lead by the Camp Manager, staff attend a Camp Induction Day every season. February half term Induction days will be announced after January 15th.
It is a chance to put what you learn at your Central Training & Assessment Day into practise at your camp.
What is a Camp Induction Day?
Previously known as the Camp Specific Training and Set Up Day, the Camp Induction Day takes place at the Super Camps venue at which you will be working and is compulsory for all Super Camps staff, including returning employees. You should attend a Camp Induction Day every season that you work.
It is a chance to put what you have learned through Online Training into practise at the venue at which you will be working.
A Camp Induction Day is also an opportunity to get to know the venue where you will be working. You will spend time getting to know your colleagues and getting camp ready for the busy season ahead by setting up play areas, writing risk assessments etc. You will receive your timetable and rota for the week ahead and learn about the children that will be on camp.
What if I cannot attend my designated Camp Induction Day?
If you are unable to attend the Camp Induction Day at the camp at which you will be working you must notify the HR Team as soon as possible. As this is a compulsory training day non-attendance could affect your employment with Super Camps so please contact the HR Team at the earliest opportunity if you foresee any problems.
All staff are required to sign a Camp Training Log at every venue they work, every season. This helps to ensure they are ready to work at a specific venue and this will be done at the Camp Induction Day.
Will I be paid to attend?
YES! Whereas your Central Training & Assessment Day is unpaid, Super Camps appreciate the hard work that a Camp Induction Day entails and appreciates staff giving up another day in their busy pre-camp lives! Therefore we offer all staff that fulfil their contract a monetarybonus, details of which can be found in your offer paperwork.
The day typically lasts 4-5 hours, however you will be paid pro rata should you attend set up for less than 4 hours. For more information please refer to your contract.
Do I need to bring anything?
It is quite an active day so comfy clothes are a must. If your Camp Induction Day runs over a lunch time it is a good idea to bring some food and enough drink to see you through.
You should also take a form of photographic ID for your Camp Manager to verify as well as your DBS certificate and any certificates relevant to camp (ie. First Aid, Lifeguard, EY or QTS certificates etc)
When is my Camp Induction Day?
Most Camp Induction Days are held the weekend before camp opens however exact dates and times vary from camp to camp! Super Camps will endeavour to update staff on any changes to Camp Induction Day dates/times. We are currently waiting for Schools to confirm our Camp Induction dates and times for Easter however they will more than likely take place the weekend before your camp is due to start. Stay tuned for an all inclusive document with all your camp induction dates and details which will be posted on this page!
Please note: Wherever possible the Camp Manager should arrive 1 hr before the rest of the staff team however occasionally the availability of the host venue means this is not always possible. Therefore all staff should note the designated arrival time for Camp Manager and all other staff.
