sm-primary-camp-feb-17WheelPower – British Wheelchair Sport will be hosting a Primary Sports Camp at Stoke Mandeville Stadium on Saturday 25 February 2017.

The Primary Sports Camp is open to children with physical or mild sensory impairments between the ages of five and eleven years old. We shall also welcome entry forms from those children who would not traditionally fit within ‘disability sport classification’ such as those with dyspraxia, epilepsy or some form of internal organ dysfunction or absence. The aim of this broader definition is to make some form of provision for those children who are unable to ‘fit in’ to mainstream PE/sport provision but who also do not qualify for disability provision.

All are welcome to attend the camp and coaches will attempt to include parents, teachers and escorts in the activities where possible. Registration will commence at 9:15am and participants are asked to be prompt. The camp will end at 3:30pm.

Activities will include Basketball, Boccia, Bowls, Kurling, Table Games, Tennis, Zone Hockey and a fun session.

The entry fee is £9.00 per participant and £5.00 per parent. A lunch will be provided for everybody attending. Accommodation, if required, will be available at the Olympic Lodge, Stoke Mandeville Stadium. A twin room costs £25.00 per night (based on two people sharing). Please indicate on your payment form if you require accommodation and please enclose the additional payment. Breakfast is an additional £3.00 per person. Siblings of camp age are welcome to join in with the activities throughout the day.

If you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact WheelPower – British Wheelchair Sport on 01296 395995 or e-mail stewart.jeeves@wheelpower.org.uk.
