Sandys 360 camp sees 600-plus children over the summer

First Prev 1 2 3 Next Last

By all standards Sandys 360 has been a hive of activity in Somerset this summer. In excess of 600 children have enjoyed a variety of summer camps at the community centre.

Summer camps have been running from June 27 and will keep going to August 30.

Each week campers have been able to choose between three camps at the centre; including Free Spirit and Swimming. Their third choice is a specialised camp which has offered drumline; soccer, cooking, cricket, fishing, rugby and dance.

This week Young Observer visited the Community Centre and spent the morning with the rugby campers.

Tadhg O'Shaughnessy and Joshua DeAllie are the rugby instructors for the camp. Joshua has just graduated from The Berkeley Institute and plays rugby for Bermuda in the Under 19s.

Tadhg is back on Island from boarding school; he also plays rugby for Bermuda Under-19s.

Tadhg told us “I've got a new-found respect for coaches.”

Tyler Balcombe has been organising the swimming camp which had 22 children enjoying learning to swim when we visited.

Ms Tia Tankard and Rhyan Weller have coordinated the Free Spirit Camp for the summer. Ms. Tankard told us to tell our readers to look out for a Basketball Camp and Girls Rock Camp for half-term week, October 28 through to November 1, 2013.

For more information about the camps offered at Sandys 360 please contact Ms Tankard on 234-6195.
