Get kids active this Spring bank holiday at Camp Carnegie
Taking place at the Carnegie Sports Centre at Headingley Campus from Tuesday 30 May to Friday 2 June, Camp Carnegie is open to children aged eight to 16 years of all sporting abilities.
New to the Camp this year is the specialist football camp, alongside the popular American sports programme including American football, lacrosse, baseball/softball, ultimate Frisbee and dodgeball. Children will also have the opportunity to mix and match their choices of sports during the day. They will have access to some of the finest sports facilities in the country, within the safety of the University’s grounds.
Kirsty Mcphee, Racket Sports Development Officer at Leeds Beckett, explained: “On the back of the success of bringing new sports into the camp last year, we have decided to bring in a half day of football to our programme. We will be continuing with American sports and football, as well as all the old trusty favourite sports including racket sports and athletics. We are continuing to bring a variety of activities to Leeds and the surrounding areas for the up-coming school holidays; and with the high level of coaches, we will be creating a fun and learning environment.”
The Camp runs from 10am to 4pm each day, with the option of paying for wraparound care from 8.30am to 5.30pm. Children will be taught by qualified and friendly coaching staff, who will place them into age and ability-appropriate groups.
The athletics programme includes sprinting, hurdling, long jump, javelin, discus and shot put; while the rackets programme features tennis, badminton, squash and table tennis.
The cost of the Camp is £15 for a half day, £25 for a full day, £30 for a full day with wraparound care, and £18 for a half day with care.
