If you are unable to attend these sessions and have notified Rising Stars prior, then your credits will be held for you. Failure to notify Rising Stars that you will not be attending will result in your credits automatically being deducted.

If your child shows symptoms of COVID-19 whilst at camp, they will be placed in an isolation room and accompanied by a staff member who will be in full PPE

The parent shall be notified immediately, and the child will be collected at the earliest possible time

If the child is unable to attend camp due to falling ill with COVID-19, we will try to fill the place and offer a full refund for the days missed if successful. If unable to fill the space, no refund will be offered.

If any members of a child’s family start showing symptoms of COVID-19, the child should not attend the camp and a full refund shall be offered if we are able to fill the space. In the event that the space is not filled, no refund shall be offered.

If the child has been outside the United Kingdom within 2 weeks of attending camp, government guidance at the time must be followed and Rising Stars management notified prior to camp starting.
