Caravan Park Safety for the School Holidays 

Category: News, Safety, Date: 18 March 2024

Are you heading away on a camping trip for the school holidays? Ensuring safety at caravan parks is crucial for an enjoyable and worry-free experience. In this article, we look at some of the top tips for staying safe at caravan park. 

Road Safety

  • Shared Pedestrian/Car Zone: Firstly, it’s important to remember that once you enter a caravan park, you’re in a shared zone. As a result, you need to respect the park speed limits and be mindful of excited kids running around!  
  • Blind Spots: Caravans and cabins can create blind spots around the park posing potential hazards to pedestrians and vehicles alike. We recommend proceeding with caution and keeping an eye out for any children or pets that may be out playing. 
  • Be Prepared: Before driving around the park, take the time to review the park map and familiarize yourself with park emergency procedures and the locations of essential facilities such as first aid stations.
  • Educate: Talk to your kids about road safety and personal safety before letting them run off. It’s important they know to be mindful of cars, wear their helmets and stay in designated zones. You should also emphasize the importance respecting other park guests. 
  • Respect Park Rules: Ultimately, everyone at the park wants to have the best time possible and staff only want you to be safe and happy. Caravan Park rules are there to ensure this happens. Review and respect the rules set out at your park and have happy holidays!

Pool Safety

Pool safety in caravan parks is paramount. To allow your family to relax and enjoy their holiday, follow these top pool safety tips:

  • Adult Supervision: Always ensure a responsible adult accompanies children to the pool. It’s extremely important that children aren’t left unattended near the water.
  • Gate Safety: Always remember to close the pool gate securely behind you as your enter or exit the pool area. These gates are there to protect kids from accessing or leaving the pool without adult supervision.
  • Pool Rules: Each pool and park will have different rules to follow. Check the signs around the pool to understand the do’s and do not’s of your park.
  • No Running: Remind children that they should walk and not run around the pool area. With so much water around it is easy for the ground to become slippy and accidents can happen.
  • Trip Hazards: Keep all trip hazards and floaties out of the way around the pool. With so many excited kids playing around the pool, it’s important to remove these hazards.
  • Slip, Slap, Slop: It’s important to stay sun protected around the pool! Keep yourself and children hydrated, and apply suncream regularly to ensure everyone can stay safe from the sun and enjoy their trip!
