Summer Camp SuccessOver 80 children attend our latest sports summer camp
Last year our fantastic volunteers helped us run a multi sports camps over the school holidays, helping to provide childcare and sporting expertise for underprivileged families in St. Lucia.
We had a girls netball camp running on the Vigie sports complex with girls from Egrets, Bocage, Soufriere and St. Lucia U14s, many of whom had attended our after school projects in the year. The girls were treated to a range of games, exercises and drills from our netball coaches.
A summer camp with a focus on all sports was held at La Clery, and offered a chance for children to sample a range of different sports including; Football, Basketball, Cricket, Rugby, Tennis, Athletics and Swimming. Attended by boys and girls from the La Clery community, Pioneers FC and our ongoing after school projects in Vide Boutielle, Marchand and Corinth, children were encouraged to find the sports they most enjoyed, and linked to our partner clubs to encourage adherence to the game.
The main focus of our camps was fun and inclusivity. They ran 4 days a week, with food and transport provided. Our large volunteer numbers meant ability levels and age groups could be split during sessions. Children from all backgrounds social backgrounds, age, ability and health got the opportunity to attend.
Highlights of the summer included a fortnightly beach day and swimming lessons at Vigie beach, a fun day on Splash island with Daren Sammy and the St. Lucia Stars cricket team and our National youth Netball tournament.
