FREE activity weekend for heart children!

Heartline Families PGL activity weekend for heart children ages 9 to 17.

Heartline Families is running a PGL activity weekend for heart children-only this year at Caythorpe Court, Lincolnshire. Our long running activity weekend will be from Friday 27th July to Monday 30th July for up to 12 children, who are members of Heartline Families.  Regrettably, due to funding constraints, we are unable to offer a siblings PGL activity weekend this year.

THE LOWDOWN
Simply drop-off your child, with suitable clothing and a sleeping bag, to the site by 3.30pm on Friday, and then collect after lunch at 2pm on Monday. The cost of the three-night break is covered by Heartline, including activities, accommodation, food and insurance.
The breaks are organised through PGL, the market leader for activity holidays. Their policy is to help children to take their first steps towards independence and give them the opportunity to build self-confidence and make new friends. We believe this to be an incredibly valuable opportunity for heart children.
Each break the children will be accompanied by experienced Heartline parents. We have worked with PGL for several years.

SO MUCH TO DO!
Children and young people choose activities within their limitations from a wide range including abseiling, archery, arts, and crafts, balls sports, climbing, circus skills, cycling, fencing, kayaking, kite making, motor sports, orienteering, nature trails and swimming. There is a qualified leader for all activities, and your child’s safety is always of paramount importance.

THE SMALL PRINT
Children must be aged between 9 and 17, and be able to produce a doctor’s letter confirming that your child is well enough to take part. We also require a £50 refundable deposit to secure places. Places are on a first come, first served basis. The places may be allocated by ballot if we become oversubscribed.  Siblings are not permitted to accompany heart children on the weekend.  The weekend requires significant organisation and allocated places are at risk if the required forms and process are not completed as advised.

WHAT NEXT?
To qualify and apply for a place for your child you must be registered with Heartline Families. You can join us for free by completing the online form. We do need to check every application to be sure that the applicant is qualified and physically capable of taking part. Once you are registered with Heartline Families, you can apply for the activity weekend form by emailing intouch@heartline.org.uk
