Kids get active at Fearnville and John Smeaton multi-sports camps

Active Sport in partnership with Fearnville and John Smeaton leisure centres organised a multi sport and swimming camps over the February half term.

The multi- sport & swimming camp encourages children and young people to be more active over the holidays by attending the multi sports & swimming  camp at a special rate thanks to funded by the Youth Activities Fund – Inner East and Outer East Area Committee.

The multi sports & swimming camp targeted 8 – 12 yrs old boys and girls within the inner east wards (including Gipton & Harehills and Killingbeck and Seacroft) and outer east wards (including Crossgates & Whinmoor, Temple Newsam, Garforth and Swillington and Kippax and Methley).   

The sports camp started from 9am until 2pm with dry side activities such as Dodge ball, Cricket, Tag rugby, Athletics, Football, Basketball, team games, Dance, Archery and Skipping school.

The Fearnville camp commissioned Feel Good Factor to deliver a session on healthy eating to make the children and young people more aware of the positive effects of eating healthier e.g. 5 a day and Eat well plate model.

After the dry side activities the young people had the option to go swimming in the pool from 2pm until 3.30pm

All of these activities were included in a discounted price due to funding from the Youth activities fund.
