Spaces filling fast on Christmas Sports Camps

Following the success of the summer sports activity camps for children, Loughborough University has organised a repeat for the Christmas holiday. Spaces are filling fast and parents are urged to book quickly to avoid disappointment.

The camps are for children aged 5-14 and will take place on 20th, 21st and 22nd December. They are ideal either as an early present or as chance to entertain the kids whilst finishing off the Christmas shopping.

These multi-sport camps encourage youngsters to learn, improve and master new skills in a safe and fun environment. Children of all abilities are welcome. Staffed by fully qualified coaches, the activities are tailored to specific age groups. The younger children (5-7) take part in playground games as well as traditional sports like football and netball. For the older children (8-10 and 11-14) there are many sports they will already know plus some new ones including rock-it-ball and trampolining. All of the activities will be tailored to individual needs and sporting ability.

The camps last all day and can be booked as a block or as a single day. Booking is through the University’s sports reception on 01509 226250.

Ian Gaunt, Loughborough University’s community sport development officer says: “These multi sport camps were a tremendous success in the summer and we are delighted to be offering them again this Christmas. I’m sure the camps will help get the Christmas holidays off to a great start and hope that the children have fun over the three days”
