At BMA, we aim to work as closely as possible with party leaders and visiting teachers before, during, and after your time with us to ensure that you and your group get the most from your experience. We believe it is important that prior to arrival, you are made aware of the apportioned responsibilities between BMA staff and party leaders / teachers. Throughout the duration of the course, our instructors will be with you for your activities sessions, as a helping hand at dinner and on evening activities. During the evenings & at breakfast times, supervision of the group will fall strictly upon group leaders / teachers. Supervising party leaders / teachers are also expected to take full responsibility for the following:
N.B. The Black Mountain Lodge is within close proximity of other residential properties therefore, we must ask all staff to restrict the use of games & noise outside the accommodation after 9pm.
We also ask all groups to bring at least one vehicle of their own so that in the event of the emergency a nominated group leader/ teacher will have access to a vehicle.
Party Leaders and visiting staff are welcome and encouraged to participate alongside their group on activity sessions. In addition, any assistance that can be given to the instructors in the organisation of the groups during the sessions is also greatly appreciated.
In order to maintain the high standards of safety at BMA, it is essential that accompanying adults and children always follow the guidelines below:
