This summer North Kelvin will be back with our annual Summer Sports Camp delivered in partnership with Sense Over Sectarianism.
The team will be returning to the Benview School Campus in to deliver another fun-filled 5-week multi-sport camp for young people aged 5 to 14 years. The camp runs from Monday to Friday between 10am and 3pm where qualified coaches deliver an action-packed week that includes skills and technical training for football, multi-sport activities and fun games.
At lunchtime staff from both SOS and Bridges and Barriers will deliver short and fun educational workshops that focus the importance of friendship building, respect, tolerance and responsibility. Each week will be given a specific theme where staff will deliver age specific activities that allow participants to explore that theme through group work, arts and crafts, drama and presentations in a fun and supportive environment.
Our camp has grown in popularity every year and is recognised as an excellent vehicle for reinforcing positive lifestyle messages to a group of young people who may otherwise be living sedentary lifestyles during the school holiday periods. Instead, they are physically active for 20 hours per week, learning new skills, making new friends and discussing important issues related to social responsibility. Crucially, our camp remains accessible for affordable for people living in our community.
