  • FOR PARENTSWere delighted youve picked up this brochure - or been given it by your enthusiastic child - and expect you probably have a few questions. So here are answers to some of the more frequently asked questions.

    What is the EMW and who runs the camps?

    The Evangelical Movement of Wales (EMW) is a registered charity, and has been running Christian camps for more than fifty-five years. All staff are Christian volunteers who are interviewed, CRB checked and further assessed for their suitability for serving on camp through references from their church leaders. All staff are trained in child protection and follow the EMW safeguarding policy (available on request). Every camp team also includes a trained first aider to ensure your child is as safe as possible.

    What is the staff/camper ratio and how will my child be looked after throughout the week?

    The staff/camper ratio averages just over 1:3. Each camper is placed in a tent or dorm with other campers (even the quietest campers quickly make friends). One or more members of staff will be assigned responsibility for the pastoral care of each tent/dorm and be available to those campers throughout the week to ensure that everyone in the group is getting the most out of camp. The camp leadership team and the chaplain will also help oversee pastoral care of campers.

    What happens on camp?

    Every camp has a wide-range of activities that should please every

    camper. Sports, arts and craft, adventure activities, wacky games, gorge walking, trips to the beach, team-building games, table-tennis and swimming are just a few of the activities that leaders will consider when drawing up the programme (licensed activity providers are used whenever required by the Adventure Activity Licensing Authority). Evenings are often given over to home-grown entertainment, with plenty of time for laughs together over a cup of hot chocolate. Time is also set aside for campers to hear from and study the Bible to find out more about Jesus. All this helps to make EMW camps something special for everyone and the reason why so many youngsters come back year after year.

    What will happen each day?

    There is no such thing as a typical day on camp! But just to give youa flavour, one day might look a bit like this (take a deep breath): plenty of good food, tournaments, sports, games, chilling out, crafts (such as a glass-painting and T-shirt design), Bible talks specifically for the age group, a trip to the beach or theme-park (or maybe something more challenging like canoeing, sailing, gorge walking, rock climbing or archery), some wacky games, Bible study with tent/dorm group, hilarious evening entertainment, camp news, hot chocolate, late night super-quick talk and then...a well-earned sleepOne day down, six more to go! More than likely, every day will be a whopping combination of these kinds of activities! Its no wonder campers and staff go home tired but happy!
