Multi-Sports offer a range of active, rewarding and fun holiday camps, aimed at both boys and girls from the ages of 5 to 13 years old. Open to children of all abilities, the camps run at various times during the school holidays, from 9am-3pm. These are held at University of Cumbria’s Sports Centre and Wetheral Village Community Hall. One of the things that makes Multi-Sports unique is that other sports camps tend to focus on a single sport, whereas our camps offer a whole variety. It is one of the key beliefs of Multi-Sports; to allow children to try many different sports at a young age to broaden their interests and knowledge in physical activity. Such as football, gymnastics, tennis, basketball, dodgeball, rounders, athletics, dance and much more!

All our Multi-Sports coaches are fully CRB/DBS checked and display a wide range of professional qualifications in teaching and coaching. Our coaches believe that at the heart of their role lies the principle that all children deserve the opportunity to broaden their experience of sport and, most of all, enjoy taking part in physical activity. This compliments our ExploreSport Scheme which runs during the Holiday Camps.

So what would my child get out of the camps?

We consider our camps to be designed in such a way that allows children to further develop their skills and achieve success through maximum involvement and encouraged competition. Children will be able to gain a better understanding of the skills they need to take their game to the next level, in an environment that is both educational and fun. Your child will have the opportunity to excel individually as well as practice their teamwork skills in a setting which encourages friendship, enjoyment, socialisation and positive experiences of physical activity.
