Sport4Kids is excited to be opening its first holiday camp in Reading this summer. We’re delighted to have access to excellent facilities at Kendrick School, including the Sports Hall and a fantastic outdoor space.
Our team have prepared a fun-filled program of sports and activities for children from 5 years old to 14 years old. Children will have the opportunity to participate in a broad range of sports including tennis, hockey, cricket, rounders, football and touch rugby. We aim to create an inclusive environment in which we encourage participation for all abilities, develop teamwork and insist on fair play! Children who come to camp also love to get involved in other active games such as Nerf battles, target games, bucket ball and water pistol battles.
For children who want to take some time out from high energy activities there are opportunities for quiet time to draw, do arts and crafts or try fun challenges that test the brain as well as physical activities.
To keep children motivated and engaged, every day we run a competition to crown our King and Queen of Camp. Children are put into teams every day and earn points for their team and themselves for SPEED – Sportsmanship, Progression, Enthusiasm, Engagement and Discipline. We also brief all the children on camp rules daily, which is fundamental to creating a caring, respectful and inclusive environment. The team framework also provides children of all ages to take on different forms leadership in games and help others with their progression.
Kendrick School is located close to businesses and offices in Reading town centre and within walking distance of Reading Railway Station, Forbury Square, Reading University London Road Campus and the Royal Berkshire Hospital. There’s also convenient vehicle access for drop off and pick up.
Camps will run from 8.00am to 6.00pm on weekdays from Monday 2nd to Friday 20th August. Timings are convenient for working parents needing Ofsted registered childcare but if a child is joining camp purely with fun in mind parents can pick up and drop off at any time that suits them. It’s so flexible that parents can even take their children out for lunch and return them for an action-packed afternoon.
Jack White, Operations Director of Sport4Kids Reading said “Making friends and social development is a major part of coming to an S4K camp. Our talented sports coaches aim to make sure every child has the opportunity to succeed, develop new skills and build their confidence. Given the cancellation of so many school days with COVID, S4K camps are a wonderful opportunity for children to catch up on lost fun!”
