Best UK summer sports camps for kids
Summer is an idyllic time for kids to learn a new sport, get some coaching lessons or play a team sport. Whether its cricket, tennis, football or gymnastics, we’ve got the summer sorted for your kids with these incredible summer sports camps.
At Activate, it’s all about sport. They run more than 250 course weeks each year, from multi-activity camps to courses on specific sports like hockey, netball and lacrosse, based at some of the smartest schools in the country. They work with current and former professional athletes and sportspeople who visit the camps, giving children a unique opportunity to meet their sporting role models, ask questions and take coaching tips. Children on the week-long cricket academy course might have the chance to bowl at Andrew Flintoff; gymnasts could work on their beam technique with Louis Smith (and yes, parents are allowed to come and watch).
