Summer holiday camp round-up: what's on?

Bristol Sport Foundation, Bristol City Community Trust, Bristol Bears Community Foundation and Bristol Flyers 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.


Football camps

Bristol City Community Trust are pleased to announce the return of their extremely popular school holiday football camps this summer. The camps will take place over the following weeks and will be delivered at South Bristol Sports Centre:

  • Monday, August 5th to Friday, August 9th
  • Monday, August 12th to Friday, August 16th
  • Monday, August 19th to Friday, August 23rd
  • Tuesday, August 27th to Friday, August 30th 

Each of the camps will run from 10am-2pm, and are designed to give children aged six-12 the opportunity to learn and practice a range of techniques, whilst expressing themselves in a fun, safe and sociable environment.

FA-qualified coaches, all of whom have a current DBS, First Aid and Child Protection accreditation, will deliver the camps, ensuring the highest quality of coaching is experienced.

Booking for the first week of the camps will be available from 10am Thursday, 20th of June with a limited number of £25 early booking discounts available here.

The Trust's camps have sold out on the last few occasions, so youngsters are encouraged to book online as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
