Welcome to Contagious Max East

Welcome to Contagious Max East

Arrivals

Contagious MAX East is at the Royal Hospital School, Holbrook, Ipswich, Suffolk, IP9 2RX.

Please aim to arrive from 2.30pm on SATURDAY 19th August. Can we please stress that it is important NOT to arrive earlier than this as rooms will not be available and leaders will not be able to supervise young people before this time. 

By Car, there are many parking spaces on the parade ground for those coming by car. Once at the venue, please follow the route below and our team will direct you to Registration in the Dining Hall.  Parents are welcome to stay for a cup of tea or coffee and use the facilities before returning home.

We will register you in the Dining Hall then show you your boarding house and introduce you to your team.  We will have a few games, refreshments and then a short tour of the School where we are staying.  You will quickly meet other young people and will make some good lasting friendships.

accommodation

The young people’s rooms have between 4 and 6 beds each with an en-suite bathroom. We try to accommodate small groups together in two or three rooms; their leader will be in a room nearby. We will do our best to meet your sharing requests, but this is not always possible.

All bedding is provided but please bring a towel. This year, on the first evening, the young people will be asked to make up their own beds using the sheet, duvet cover and pillow case provided.

There are several common rooms located around the buildings, which we can make into good hangout places for the young people.
