School’s out – so our Multi-Sports Camps kick in!
17th June, 2022

School’s out for summer so that means only one thing – our Multi-Sports Camps kick in!

There’s swimming every day in our fantastic pool complete with wave machine – so bring trunks or a costume. And there’s also going to be two of the following activities each day: cricket, volleyball, football, rounders, basketball, gymnastics, handball, mini bootcamp, bouncy castle and nerf wars!

The fun begins as the school year ends with a two-day camp on 21st and 22nd July. We’re then running the camps Monday to Friday throughout July, August (except for Bank Holiday Monday on 29th August) and into September. Open to children aged between 5 and 13 at our Barrow Park Leisure Centre on Greengate Street. Here’s the full list of the dates:

  • 21st July – 22nd July
  • 25th July – 29th July
  • 1st August – 5th August
  • 8th August – 12th August
  • 15th August – 19th August
  • 22nd August – 26th August
  • 30th August – 2nd September

Our camps are the best value for money locally and the cost is £12.50 a child per day for Barrow Park members, or £15 a child per day for non-members. We’re also providing a lovely, nutritious lunch for £3.50 a child per day.

The fun and games start at 9.30am and run until 3.30pm each day, or you can take advantage of our early drop-off (from 8am) and/or late pick-up (until 5pm) for just £3 a day for each child.

We’re only taking bookings at our reception, or over the phone on 01229 871 146.

Join the fun and put a ‘yay’ in your child’s day!

Secure your child’s spot now before all our spaces are filled. Bookings can be made at any time, up until the morning of each camp date (as long as there are spaces available). Book now to avoid disappointment!
