Summer Holiday Fun At Sport And Rec Centres

Slap on a hat, put on some hiking shoes and don’t forget to pack your swimsuit, because summer is here and there’s a raft of adventurous activities awaiting young campers at Sport and Recreation Centres across NSW.

 Minister for Sport and Recreation, Gabrielle Upton, said more than 2,000 children are expected to take part in 50 camps featuring over 40 different outdoor activities in the upcoming school holiday period – and two lucky children can win a camp experience for free.

 “There is so much active, outdoor fun to be had at a Sport and Recreation camp – it’s the perfect antidote to television and computer overload,” said Ms Upton.

 “From sailing to rock climbing, fishing or even cooking classes, there is something on offer to suit everyone’s taste.

 “But the camp experience is about so much more than just the organised activities.

 “For younger kids, it’s a chance to make new friends, have fun, try new things and learn problem solving skills.

 “Teenagers will get to build friendships, improve leadership skills and learn the benefits of a healthy and active lifestyle.”

 Ms Upton said Sport and Recreation is giving away a children’s camp for two.

 “Just visit the website, like the Facebook page and answer the questions to go in the running to win a Sport and Recreation holiday camp for two kids,” she said.

 Competition entries close 3pm Friday, 13 December 2013.

 Kids’ Camps will run throughout the school holidays, up to 24 January 2014.

 Camps range in length from one to five days, with a variety of options suitable for children aged from four to 15 years.
