LSBU Holiday Sports Camps Summer 2021
LSBU Active offers a holiday Sports Camps programme for children in the local community. We cater for children aged 5 (and in Year 1 of school) to 11 years old.
The holiday sports camps not only introduce your child to new sports activities, they boost your child's physical activity, health, development and social skills.
We offer a range of fun and engaging activities such as dance, mini tennis, athletics, football, basketball, and much more. We will end each day with free choice, so your child has the chance to try new activities!
Our holiday sports camps are open Monday to Friday (excluding bank holidays) from 9:30am to 4:00pm.
We will be hosting the camps at our local outdoor facility, Geraldine Mary Harmsworth Sports Facility, SE1 6ER – a great location to spend half term! Facilities include: netball courts, basketball courts, 5-a-side pitches and a club house with seating, changing rooms and toilets.
