If you have one, you can bring a mobile or tablet to use during the journeys to and from the centre. When we arrive, they will be locked away for safekeeping for the Superweek. There are a couple of reasons we do this:
Because we’re extremely cruel and heartless
- It’s not a good idea to have expensive things lying around on a Superweek. If your valuables are locked away, there’s no chance of them wandering off.
- We really want everyone to spend time enjoying one anther’s company, and we find it works better when nobody is distracted by playing Tetris on their Gameboy Advance (is that the up-to-date technology?)
If you have an e-reader like a Kindle, you can probably hang onto that, and you can keep a camera to take pictures during the week – but it has to be a camera, and not a phone! It will be up to you to keep them safe.
Some of our centres are very old, and they’re all out in the countryside. We won’t let you keep sweets and food in your dorm, because they tend to attract unwanted and squeaky visitors! Don’t worry – we promise there’ll be plenty to eat.
