Fun Camp at Mosborough

Posted on: March 6th, 2009 by Nathan Reid

Interserve Active8 hosted their first fun camp during the February half term over three days at Mosborough Primary School. Throughout the three days various activities were held, ranging from fitness exercises, sports skills, fun games and creative activities that we hope will be a good base for everyone involved to lead healthy lifestyles. The course was run from 10.00am – 3.00pm each day. Regular breaks were given and when the weather was fine the groups ventured outdoors for play and also to search for various objects to use for the creative activities.

The group were of primary school age and mostly went to Mosborough Primary School. We hope that we can strengthen our working relationship within the school and keep these activities going to benefit the local community by providing the children with fun learning experiences from an early age. Integrated into the course were educational based tasks such as time keeping and scoring. We have also created a link with a local business to provide the participants with further options and benefits for attending our course.

Each day we had a volunteer to help the coach and to learn the nature and objectives of the sessions and gain valuable experience, so that they may be able to work closely with us on future camps. These coaches brought bright new ideas that we can develop in order to improve these fun camps over time.

The children responded positively to the coaches and activities, which made for a hugely enjoyable camp. The group had the opportunity to express themselves by designing their own games, participating in different sports skills, enjoying fun games and creating pieces of work using various objects they had selected.

We would just like to say a big thank you to all those that supported and took part in this camp and hope that we can work with you all closely in the future.
