A hot meal will be provided at lunchtime. Keep an eye out for further info about food choices in your Playwaze messages/emails, as we will need this information in advance of starting the workshop, and you will risk not having a participant meal.
If the participant would prefer a packed lunch from home, please let us know.

“Frequently asked questions
How do I know if my child is eligible to attend a HAPpy Camp?
Children who are in school years Reception to Year 11, who attend a Hertfordshire school and are in receipt of benefits related free school meals are eligible to receive a code and attend HAPpy Camps. You can check your eligibility by clicking here.
My child is in Reception or KS1 and gets free school meals – does this count?
No, this is the Universal Infant Free School Meal offer that all children in these year groups receive – this type of free school meal does not make children eligible. You may be eligible if you meet any of the criteria outlined here. If you believe that you do meet the criteria, please apply for free school meals, as this could further support your child in school, and will ensure you receive your code.
How do I access my HAPpy Booking Code?
Schools in Hertfordshire will be sent information about new HAPpy Booking Codes after the May half term, so please request it from the school office if they have not shared it with you by then. If you have not received your code by Wednesday 19th July, please contact your school office, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note any codes used for previous delivery phases (2021 and 2022) will not be recognised on the booking system, therefore you must use the NEW code you have received from school to book for Summer 2023.
Are Ukrainian children/other refugee/asylum seeking children eligible to attend HAPpy Camps?
All Ukrainian/refugee/asylum seeking children will be eligible to attend HAppy Camps and can obtain a code from their school. If children have not been allocated a school place by the time bookings open on 27th June, please email email@example.com and we can help you with a referral code.
My child is Electively Home Educated (EHE) and we would meet the criteria; how can I obtain a code?
The EHE Team at Hertfordshire County Council have a list of families whom they believe to be eligible and will write to them. If you do not receive an email, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can pass your details on.
I am on a low income, but not low enough for my children to receive free school meals – can I get a code?
Under certain circumstances, and where existing family support is in place, HAPpy Camps may have the opportunity to support vulnerable children from low income families. If you feel that you fit this criteria, the professional who is supporting your family will need to email email@example.com. This can be a Family Support Worker, SENCo, social worker, teacher etc.
