Kids & Teens Health & Safety
Camp Creative is a child safe organisation. The needs and wellbeing of our kids and young people are of the highest priority.
For 2024 we have some new systems and procedures to provide the best possible care and support for our young Campers.
We ask that parents and guardians read all of the sections below.
We also require you to complete a Camp health form for each child attending the Camp. This form will be emailed to you when you book in a child under the age of 16.
This information will be provided to our Camp First aid team and tutors, where required.
Kids & Teen Zones
Kids & teens courses are run in their own supervised precincts, separate to adult classrooms.
Precincts are supervised throughout the day by Camp volunteers.
Kids courses near adult classrooms or with shared bathrooms are all closely monitored.
St Marys Primary School
Bellingen High School – Spaghetti Circus @ Stockton Hall
Bellingen Youth Hub
Breaks & Lunchtimes
Tutors are not responsible for students during lunchtime.
There will be supervised lunch and play areas at the Hub, Primary School & High School.
Lunches can be ordered online to be made at the High School canteen and delivered directly to classrooms every day.
If your child is not ordering lunch through our canteen, please provide them with a lunchbox to keep them sustained for the duration of their course.
St Marys Primary School has a canteen.
The Hub does not have a canteen. The Hub is a 1 minute walk from the centre of town, teens 16+ (and teens 14+ who have been given parental permission) will be able to walk to town for lunch if needed.
Parents and families are welcome to collect their kids for lunchtime – they’ll need to be signed out after 12 pm and back in by 12.50 pm by an approved adult.
Teens over 14 are allowed to go out for lunch unaccompanied, but parent/guardian permission must be provided by 5.00 pm the day prior.
Bus details are still being arranged and will be published here later in 2024.
Check in & out
Young people under 16 will need to be checked in and out by a parent or guardian each day.
St Marys Primary School – inside front gate
Bellingen High School – Stockton Hall
Bellingen Youth Hub – second entrance
Mornings – between 8.40 am and 8.50 am
Lunchtimes – after 12.00 pm, check back in by 12.50 pm
Afternoons – between 4.00 pm and 4.15 pm
Some courses involve walks or trips away from the classroom. If your child’s course involves an excursion, you will have been sent an email with a link to a permission form. Students cannot go on excursions if the permission form has not been completed.
All excursions are accompanied by at least two adults, including a qualified first aider.
Photos & Video
Please let us know if you would prefer that your child not be included in official Camp photos and video.
We do use them for Camp publicity, so they may appear on our website, social media and promotional materials. Kids and teens who cannot be included will receive a coloured wristband to notify photography and video teams. Please ensure they always wear their wristband.
