Wigwam Holiday – Frequently Asked Questions

Although we try and put as much information as possible on our holiday pages, if you’re new to Single With Kids we’re sure you’ll have more questions! We’ve tried to cover all of these below, if you have any queries that aren’t answered below, please do email us at events@singlewithkids.co.uk

The Holiday

2.  I don’t know anyone…

You’re in the majority! Most of the families on the trip will never have met before – your coordinator will arrange get togethers and events to bring the group together. You may be strangers to begin with, you’ll end up leaving as friends. There is a buffet on the first night that is always a good icebreaker.
