We are now into our seventh summer holiday
of delivering high quality sports coaching opportunities and
this year we have teamed up with more coaching providers to
extend our offer. Using two excellent local sporting facilities,
lots of fantastic local coaches and our years of experience, at
Chance Camp we are looking forward to what is going to be an
active, action packed and fun sporting holiday. We have managed
to retain the sibling 50% discount when full camps are booked
and we hope this helps families out and makes the opportunities
We hope our Chance Campers enjoy the rest of their school term
and we look forward to seeing many children running around the
great outdoors, building and making new friendships, working up
a good appetite and hopefully uncovering the next generation of
Cumbrian sporting superstars.
Why should children attend Chance Camp?
Research by The Partnership for 21st Century Skills believes
that holiday camps play a huge role in developing the key life
skills children now need living in the 21st Century, including
communication, collaboration, creativity, leadership,
socialization, and problem solving. Chance Camp provides
children with the opportunity to develop all of these key skills
through sport and physical activity.
At Chance Camp children are able to unplug themselves from
technology and spend time actively playing and working with
other children, interacting face to face and meeting new people
whilst making new friends. Chance Camp promote the use of
teamwork and sportsmanship throughout its camps, encouraging
children to work together to complete challenges and take on
leadership roles, developing communication skills and building
strong social relationships. We provide children with the
opportunity to experience something new and when a child
succeeds they develop a greater sense of self-efficacy.
Children are provided with time for unstructured play allowing
children to reach key emotional, cognitive and social
development milestones. Children are taught to be responsible
for themselves and others, inspiring independence, self-esteem
and confidence away from close family or friends creating an
environment where a child can be who they want to be.
Why do you think kids should use Chance
Camp in the summer holidays?
When I was growing up, I'd spend my summer holidays outside
playing with friends, going on bike rides and making dens.
Unfortunately I didn't have the opportunity to go to a sports
camp however going to somewhere like Chance Camp would have been
something that I would have loved to do.
The NHS state that children between the ages of 5-18 years
should be taking part in at least 60 minutes of exercise every
day that improves muscle and bone strength and aerobic fitness.
With children spending most of their weekly day in school
classrooms and with the advances with technology and computer
games, Chance Camp gives children the perfect opportunity to get
active and get healthy!
Chance Camp also gives children the opportunity to develop their
social skills and meet new people. It can always be daunting for
any child to try something new and not know anyone. However,
from my experience, by the end of the first day everyone has
usually got to know each other and made lots of new friends.
A final reason why children should come to Chance Camp is that
it gives children the opportunity to develop their sporting
talents. During the summer camps we will be developing a variety
of different skills and sports and it may give children the
opportunity to take part in an activity that they've never
encountered before. Coming to Chance Camp can help children to
discover talents and interests they didn't know they had.
Why Should you send your children to
From our experiences at Chance Camp, we have seen children
thrive in their sporting achievements and become more resilient
in everything they try during camp. We give them the opportunity
to work with children they may not have met before, wouldn't
normally work with or even help others when another child is
struggling. We give them the opportunity to lead a scenario and
communicate with a group in order to gain a sense of achievement
and leadership that they may not usual get during school. From
this the children gain more confidence in what they are doing
and are able to have more chances to participate and influence
in sporting activities. We have a range of sporting challenges
on offer with professional coaches guiding them forwards to
improve and succeed during our competitions.
We have seen so many friendships develop throughout the years
during Chance Camp which is great to see, especially when the
children are then focused on becoming better and challenging
themselves further throughout with the challenge of beating
their friends. We have seen children take up new sports at clubs
due to trying them at Chance Camp and enjoying the physical
We live in a world now where technology is an easy way to keep
your child entertained throughout the day whilst you get on with
your daily chores. Are you not bored of them spending days sat
in front of that TV screen?
If you would rather see your child achieve something they can be
proud of and be successful in, send them to Chance Camp! We
guarantee a great standard of Fun and Learning with the chance
to compete and gain new skills that they may never have tried
