What time will they finish on Friday and Saturday?

It is not possible to say precisely when your child’s group will finish on Friday or Saturday. Finish times vary enormously especially on their first expedition, some groups might finish by 2.30pm, others after 6pm.

Please wait for a phone call from your child to update you on their estimated finish time. Please do not arrive too early at pick up points. Some have very little parking space.

Friday afternoon pick up locations and Saturday morning drop off locations are the same place for each group.
