Sporting charities offer wide range of Summer Holiday camps

Bristol City Community Trust, Bristol Bears Foundation, Bristol Flyers Community and Bristol Jets Community are offering a wide range of holiday camps during the summer holidays.

Providing an affordable, extended opportunity for children to play sport and receive specialist coaching during the school holidays, the camps range from single sport to multi-sports camps.

With a game-sense approach, our charities focus on providing a fun and inclusive environment that is child centred. The camps are led by experienced Level 2 sports coaches, offering the chance for children to play their favourite sports - and try some new ones.
