We are so excited to be running Camp Cooper for summer 2022! After two summers of not running Camp, kids are so in need of a summer of fun, adventure and friendship.
The Scottish Government have relaxed the rules for summer camps and coupled with the relaxation of travel rules, we firmly believe that we can run a safe and fun Camp Cooper this summer!
Underneath is useful information on Camp Cooper running this summer with COVID.
Travelling to the UK
The UK Government have released new information on travelling to the UK. The new guidelines will make travelling to the UK much easier.
From February 11, 2022, fully vaccinated* travellers under 18 arriving in the UK:
- No longer require a negative Covid 19 test prior to arrival
- No longer need to complete a Covid 19 test after arrival in the UK
- Will need to complete a Passenger Locator Form 48 hours before arrival in the UK
*Fully vaccinated travellers are those who have had at least 2 doses of an approved vaccine, or 1 dose of the Janssen vaccine. All students under 18 follow the above rules regardless of vaccination status.
We HIGHLY RECOMMEND all campers be fully vaccinated for summer 2022 if they are eligible. Having the whole Camp Community vaccinated will help keep everyone safe and reduce the risk of anyone contracting COVID-19.
Please note, it is your responsibility to organise, book and pay for any testing that is required for your journey home. Please check the rules of your home country and if you need us to assist with anything like a pre-departure test, please let us know.
We understand that due to COVID-19, you may have concerns about doing a booking. To help you, we have updated our policies to reflect the current situation.
- If we cancel Camp Cooper before the session starts, you will receive a full refund
Before May 1, 2022
- You may cancel your place and receive a full refund
After May 1, 2022
- You may move your place and payment(s) to summer 2023
- A refund of final balance fees if you are unable to travel due to Covid 19 restrictions in your home country
We hope that this helps to put your mind at ease when registering with us. We strongly recommend taking out your own travel insurance policy that will cover you in the event of unforeseen circumstances.

Yes - We are requiring all staff to be vaccinated at Camp Cooper for summer 2022 (unless there is a medical exemption).
We HIGHLY RECOMMEND all campers to be fully for summer 2022. Having the whole Camp Community vaccinated will help keep everyone safe and reduce the risk of anyone contracting COVID-19.
All campers and staff will be expected to regularly wash their hands throughout their stay at Camp. We will be reminding campers of the importance of handwashing at regular parts of the day, for example at mealtimes.
We do not expect campers to be wearing a face mask during Camp. If a camper wishes to, they may wear a mask during their time at Camp
We expect all activities to be going ahead as usual(ish). We plan on running as many activities outside as much as possible - which is a sensible precaution that will ensure we can run all of our activities but also help keep everyone safe.
Yes! We will increase the cleaning and sanitising of the facilities and equipment at Camp.
If your child contracts COVID-19 whilst at Camp, our number one priority is their health and wellbeing. We will have specific isolation areas at Camp which will be used in case of a camper contracts COVID. We will have a nurse on Camp who will ensure campers are well, rested and recovering. We will also keep in regular contact to ensure you are up to date with everything that is happening.
