Holiday Programmes

Spend the holidays having loads of fun.

The holidays are the perfect time for adventures.

Our holiday adventures provide a chance for existing and new Gang members to get out and be active during the Holidays or a cheeky day off school.

Running for 2-5 days and in different locations our programme is definitely NOT school. Every day is planned to include loads of activities, games and socialising with new friends.

In every camp we include activities based on the 4 elements – earth, wind, water and fire. Constantly engaging and exciting, you can expect tired, yet smiling kids at the end of each day.

When I asked charlotte what her favorite bit of it was… she said ‘everything’!

FAQs

Drop off and pick up
Drop off and pick up points will vary within HK Island depending on the plan for each specfic day.
What to wear
We do not have a uniform. The kids are free to dress as they like. However, they should be encouraged to make smart choices in relation to the weather and that week’s activity. Good shoes are a must!
What to bring
Every kid should have a backpack with a full water bottle, a couple of snacks and a hat if it is a hot and sunny day. We also suggest that they apply sunscreen and/or insect repellent before arriving and keep extra in their packs.
Communications
We will confirm your child’s place in the camp via email and send out details of location and what to bring in the week leading up to the camp.  At the end of each Camp, a video of our adventures will be shared via Whatsapp.
Weather
Red & Black Rain/No.8 Typhoon Signal

Programmes are automatically cancelled during Red and Black rain warnings or the hoisting of the No.8 Typhoon Signal. If programmes are in progress while a severe weather warning is hoisted, Backyard Roots staff will end the session, contact the Parents/Guardians and ensure the students are in the care of their parent or guardian.

Programmes scheduled to run while Red or Black rain storm warnings are hoisted will be automatically cancelled. Unfortunately no refunds or credit will be offered in this situation.

Where possible, scheduled programmes will resume after the lowering of weather warnings.

If signal is lowered at or after 4pm, all remaining programmes will be cancelled for that day.

Amber Rain Storm warning

Where possible, scheduled programmes will continue in Amber rain if it is safe to do so – updates will be sent via WhatsApp groups.

Typhoon signal 3

Assume we are ON, unless you hear otherwise.

Illness or schedule clash
If your child cannot make it, please let us know. We always wait for the whole Gang to arrive before we set off!
Payment
Payment can be made via Bank Transfer (HSBC), PAYME (HSBC) App or Cheque. We ask that full payment is made 2 weeks prior to the start of the camp. Places will only be secured once we have received your application form AND proof of payment.
Cancellation & Refunds
Refunds, credit letters or make up sessions will NOT be given for non-attendance of programmes/event for any reason. Refunds and/or credit letters will be issued if a doctors note is provided to prove the student is unable to attend due to injury or prolonged illness. All other refunds will be at the discretion of Backyard Roots Ltd management and based on individual circumstances.
