We hope you and your families have been keeping well during the pandemic. It’s been some time since we’ve been able to talk about our in-person camps here at Fire Tech and as everyone’s thoughts are turning to summer we’d like to give you an update.
Since taking the decision to suspend our in-person camps and move to online delivery last year, the team at Fire Tech HQ have been busy developing new products and services for our families. You may have seen the launch of our Experiences as well as new part-time and self-guided courses across 2020 and we hope your children have gotten the chance to take part in these!
Deciding to suspend our in-person camps last year was clear for us: we had to make sure our camps were safe for our families. Since then we’ve been paying close attention to when we could start to hold these events again. There has been strong demand from our parents for in-person camps and we’re delighted to announce that preparations are underway to re-launch these on a limited basis over the Summer holidays.
This summer we are going to run both our online courses and in-person camps. Our in-person camps will be taking place at Chelsea Academy rated outstanding by Ofsted. We are now taking bookings for our camps at Chelsea Academy and may add additional locations in the future. We are ensuring that every in-person camp will be as safe and enjoyable as possible. You can look through our FAQ about the measures we’re taking.
We appreciate that there’s quite a lot of uncertainty around planning in advance for in-person activities. We can provide flexibility with your bookings. Please book for your preferred option so that you lock in that place as capacity will be limited this summer. You will be able to switch from in-person to online if your preference changes (just let us know 2 weeks prior to your camp starting). If we have to cancel the course you have booked, prior to it starting due to restrictions, we will offer you credits or refunds.
We look forward to seeing you this summer – in person or online – and we hope that this gives you a bit more visibility on how we’re planning to serve you.
All the best,
Fire Tech Founder & CEO
