Rugby club hosts Skipton summer camp for youngsters
9:00am Sunday 8th September 2013 in News
Running for six weeks, the camp – the first one to be endorsed by the club – offered a wide variety of sports, from the traditional football and rugby to the less well-known dodgeball and handball.
“The idea was for youngsters to play different sports and see what worked for them,” said organiser Ashley Greaves. “It exceeded our targets, with 20 to 30 children coming along each week. Most gained in confidence and most enjoyed the experience.”
He added that part of the scheme’s success was due to a £3,000 donation from Skipton Rotary Club which was used to purchase equipment, assistance from local police and the number of volunteers who came forward.
Another camp will be held over the October half-term and further information can be obtained from Ashley on 07590 016875.
