Youngsters are having a ball at OneRen Summer Camps

Youngsters have been having a ball at the OneRen Summer Activity Camps during the school holidays.

And not just one ball – but tennis balls, basketballs, golf balls, rugby balls and footballs!

These photographs taken at the summer camp at Park Mains, in Erskine show just how much fun they’re having.

The camps organised and run by OneRen’s Active Schools team, included multi-sports activities, which included tennis, basketball, dodgeball, rounders, touch rugby, indoor hockey, frisbee golf, archery and rounders.

Then there were dance sessions with various styles being taught including ballet, street, cheer and gymnastics.

And a really popular activity was football with technical drills in the morning and games in the afternoon.

Feedback from youngsters was extremely positive with comments like – “everything is so much fun”; “the coaches are really nice”; “really enjoyed touch rugby, hockey and frisbee golf” and “I’ve had so much fun playing different sports at the camp”

One parent said: “Thank you for a really good week. The children have enjoyed it, met new friends and were in bed for 6pm!”

The multi-activity camps for youngsters in Primary One to S3 are being held at the On-X, in Linwood and Park Mains Sports Complex with a variety of activities including sports, games, themed days and exciting challenges.

The more adventurous from Primary Seven to S6 can enjoy an Outdoor Multi-activity Camp leaving from the KGV Pavilion, in Renfrew. These activities include gorge walking, paddle sports, mountain biking, kayaking, rock climbing and much more.

Youngsters from Primary 1 to S3, who like playing football can benefit from taking part in the OneRen/Scottish Football Association Football Camp, being held at Park Mains.

The football camps are designed by experienced SFA coaches in line with the National Player Pathway and are aimed at improving football skill, teamwork, fitness and communication.

Dance camps for youngsters in Primary school are being held at Park Mains High School with the sessions being led by UKCC qualified coaches and co-ordinators who will teach various disciplines of dance.

The OneRen Active Families Disability Sport and Activity Club provides activity sessions for youngsters with additional support needs and their families. This weekly club is being held at The Lagoon, in Paisley and is for youngsters with a disability or sensory impairment in Primary One to S6.

As well as being able to take part in sports and leisure activities led by qualified coaches, there will also be a fun bouncy castle and siblings are also welcome to take part.

Robert Agnew, OneRen’s Active Schools and Community Club Lead Officer said: “Just by the look on their faces, you can see the youngsters are really enjoying their time at our activity camps.

“We aim to give the youngsters lots of fun during the holidays and at the same time keep them active, which is good for their health and well-being.”
