Question: What age groups and programmes will be available on the weekend?
Answer: Please see the Children and Youth Programme section for more details on age groups. Closer to the event, we will provide even more details on these pages with daily itineraries, inshaAllah.
Question: If I have not registered for the programmes, can my child join on the day?
Answer: No, pre-registration is a must, so don’t delay.
Question: Are the programmes segregated?
Answer: Yes, the programmes are fully segregated above the age of 10 years old.
Question: My child is just under 4 years old and is really independent, can he please join the Youth Programme?
Answer: We apologise but the team organising the children’s weekend of activities have explicitly said they will not be able to cater for children under 4 years old. We do not recommend very young children being away from their parents for such long periods as we believe it is not good for their emotional development.
Question: I don’t want my child doing a specific activity
Answer: We respect individual choice, but this may mean that you would have to collect your child for that period.
Question: What happens at lunch time, do our children get lunch on the programme?
Answer: Parents are expected to collect their children and take them for lunch. Unless we have made a specific arrangement for some of the older children, parents must collect their children. Children who are not collected will not be allowed to continue on the programme the following day.
Question: What if you need to contact us in an emergency?
Answer: We will be taking all parent mobile numbers. Children who cry for long periods and need their parents will be asked to join their parents outside of the programme. Parents who do not pick their children up will not be allowed to bring them the following day to the programme.
Question: Do I need to bring any special clothing?
Answer: Closer to the event, our Events Team will be in contact with you to give you more exact details. But we expect you to bring a spare change of clothes, warm outdoor clothes and shoes as well as swimwear. We do carry out all activities regardless of the weather conditions.
