Monaghan Sports Partnership announces Multi Sports Ability Summer Camp 2013
(for children with a disability and their siblings)
Starting – Thursday 18th July
Monaghan Sports Partnership through its Sports Inclusion Programme is proud to announce the details of its new Sports Ability Summer Camp series.
The camps will cater for children with a disability aged 5-14 years and their siblings. The Monaghan camp will take place in St. Patricks Hall, The Diamond, Monaghan Town over 6 weeks on consecutive Thursday evening (6.00pm – 7.00pm) starting on Thursday 18th July.
A wide range of sports activities will be offered over the six activity sessions and will allow children to try out such sports as; Gaelic, Soccer, Rugby, Tai Chi, Athletics, Hip Hop dance, Aerobics, Boccia, and parachute games. The camp will be supported by coaches from four National Governing Bodies of sport along with local sports coaches / tutors.
This camp is unique in that it caters for children with physical, intellectual, learning and sensory disabilities and also accommodates their siblings and parents which is a fantastic way to promote family interaction through the medium of sport and physical activity. To allow the Sports Partnership and the tutors adequately prepare for the camp activities, it is vital that applications are received early and that parents / guardians supply as much information as possible about their child and his / her disability. All information is held in strictest confidence and only used for the purposes of camp preparation.
There are a limited number of places available on this camp and therefore applications must be received by the closing date of Thursday 11th July along with registration fee.
Cost of camp : €15 per child (for the six week programme)
