Hi SL19 - What a great trip to choose as your first SWK outing! Your son will love it!  :) and you will too!

I'm probably going as it's the last SWK camp of the year and always a really nice camp.

Do you do a lot of camping?

As well as the last swk camp of the season, it's also the biggest and (some say) the best :)

MM, you'd better have a damn fine excuse if you're not coming.

Only a few weeks to go ... see you all there.

hi there I am also going to Wicksteed this month and it will also be my first SWK holiday. I have a 10 year old daughter who lives with me full time and has no contact with her dad so this should be an experience for both of us. I have booked from the Friday until the Monday and have Paypal confirmation of the booking but as yet have heard nothing from SWK. can anyone advise what normal protocol is please? should I have received something by now???

Sorry, can't recall if there's a receipt issued at the time of payment.

There's a mail that goes out a week or so before each holiday ... you should get that one.

If you're on f/b you might also keep an eye on the event listing: https://www.facebook.com/events/1510658715924137/?active_tab=posts

Our very first SWK holiday was a Wicksteed camp.  I still remember the moment when it struck my children that every family in the field had but one parent with them .. it was a good moment :)

See you soon .. not long to go.

If you're worried, you could seek confirmation by contacting the office ...

Hi :)

We have just booked Wicksteed, which will be our first SWK event.  My boys are 8 and 6 and have been to the park once before - it's great!

Really excited to meet everyone
