Below are a list of questions we hope will answer any queries you may have. To view an answer click a question and the answer will expand. If you have a question not answered on this page please do contact us.
What if my child has special needs?
We do everything we can to cater for special needs, whether dietary, physical, or anything else. All we ask is that you let us know at the time of booking about any particular need. If you do not let us know in good time, we may not be able to care for your child properly at Quantock3.
What do we need to take to Quantock, and what time do we arrive?
If you have booked your place on Quantock3 then we will be in touch in due course with details on what to bring, when to arrive and the camps theme for the year.
What about travel?
Parents and guardians are responsible for the travel arrangements to and from the Quantock3. There may be organised transport arranged by church groups, where an adult will escort these groups. Those who travel independently on public transport may be able to be met at Taunton or Bridgewater railway station, if you arrange this in advance and contact us.
What is the accomodation like?
We stay in Quantock Lodge and surrounding purpose-built accommodation. Our rooms are dormitory style taking 3-6 people each. To find out more about Quantock Lodge click here or contact us.
What about safety?
We take the issue of safety extremely seriously. We have a safeguarding policy which all leaders agree to abide by and are given training in. Each Venture also has a specific safeguarding officer who deals with all issues surrounding this area. It is normal practice to have a qualified first aider on site and a qualified lifeguard will always supervise swimming, where required. Ventures and Falcon Camps (who run about 90 ventures similar to Quantock3) are licensed by the Adventure Activities Licensing Authority (AALA) to provide specified activities such as high ropes, trekking and watersports. Licence details can be confirmed by calling the Licensing Authority on 029 2075 5715.
What if I can't afford the cost?
The generosity of Ventures supporters means that limited bursaries are available each year, please click here for more details. Please don't let cost be a reason for not taking part.
I have a different question.
