Parents and leaders

We look forward to welcoming your child to the Urdd City Sleepover. This section answers the most common questions about your child’s stay.

Although most teachers and parents recognise that residential courses offer children and young people invaluable experiences, we understand that many are concerned about organising such trips in the current social climate. We understand these concerns and have done everything we can to ensure schools are given every support throughout the process.
