What a week it’s been! Not only was it the start of 2018 for many schools throughout the UK, Sally Gunnell OBE was promoting Wellbeing across Sky News and many national and regional radio stations. Did you manage to catch any of it?

Looking ahead to our February Camps, we’re pleased to announce that the social media graphics are now available to download from the BMS, and the passport stickers are now available to purchase from the shop.

Our design team are already hot on the heels of the Easter Camps, with the designs scheduled to be ready on Friday next week, ensuring you can promote them at your Feb Camps!

A word on the Premier Passports...

At the start of the year, Premier launched the Premier Passport scheme for Camps. Just like when you visit your favourite coffee shop, the passports are designed to incentivise loyalty by collection of stickers for each Camp across the year.

The passports, that were a mandatory addition to Camps, are a simple and cost-effective way to get parents and children engaged in your Camp efforts throughout the course of the year. By collecting all stickers, they can WIN a Premier goodie bag!

If you haven’t been utilising this technique yet, please ensure that you start from your next round of Camps. It only costs £4 for a set of 35 Passports, with the stickers costed at £5 for 150. Find the links for each below.
