Depending on each child’s support needs, our Daycamp programmes are more suitable for children with additional needs, where they can benefit from 1:1 support provided as part of the Hampshire County Council Short Breaks Scheme.  Visit our Daycamp page for more information or contact us on 01489 785228 to discuss your child’s support needs.
Great news! As all YMCA Daycamps and Residential Camps are Ofsted registered and classified as childcare, you save money on the cost by paying with Childcare Vouchers (CCV) or the Government’s Tax-Free Childcare scheme (TFC). Deciding to pay by CCV or TFC amounts to accepting to buy a service and will be subject to relevant booking conditions. Please note that CCV/TFC payments can only be accepted for the childcare element of bookings and cannot be used to purchase the Family Discount Scheme. We can also accept payment by credit or debit card for any of our services. If you need any further information that isn’t covered below, call our team for advice: 01489 785228.
The majority of our activities are suitable for children with disabilities or can be adapted to make them accessible to ensure everyone can experience the benefits of outdoor adventure.  Camp Fairthorne children stay in tents with wooden floors and access a nearby toilet and shower block which has an accessible bathroom. Please contact us to discuss your child’s requirements.
