HEALTH CAMPS

About Health Camps

Boys and girls aged 11-16 who have a BMI of 25 and above and who are predominantly inactive, are welcome to participate in a five day Multi-Sport Active Health Camp.

A varied and fun activity programme will be offered, sports ranging from badminton, football, boxercise, Nordic walking, basketball, short tennis and many more activities. On the last day the group will be invited to Madjeski Stadium in Reading, where they will be given a tour around the football stadium and grounds. The week will finish with a presentation where family members are invited and the participants awarded a certificate of attendance.

We are able to offer 20 – 24 fully funded places across the 2 camps (ideally 12 on each day) on the pilot and are seeking referrals from outside agencies, professionals, parents and young people themselves. Priority will be given to children who are already overweight and inactive but we will accept referrals where there is a concern regarding weight or health management.
