Not that I am aware of. There might be a different policy if your a little nipper but definitely not the usual way? Anyway you have the full screws there if you need anyone to hold your hand which I am sure they will be delighted to do.
if your a junior entry e.g. bassingborn or harrogate you get a parents day i think around week 6 basically when you have drill test 1 and then you get presented your beret's (with capbadge) your parents visit you then and you can go out for the day.. that is what my mate told me who came to atr (p) from harrogate after doing 40 weeks there had to transfer cus off injury.
ally is correct you willput on a display of sorts and your family will wander round looking at bashas and eating compo etc. You knock off around 15.00 and can go with your family and have to be back in camp Monday.
Am sure you will get more precise details when you join
