Children of all abilities are encouraged to develop their sporting and social skills in an enjoyable and positive environment and bBookings are currently being taken for an Easter holiday camp and multiple weeks of summer camp.
Participants will experience at least 10 sports per week, including new sports such as flag football, tag rugby and ultimate Frisbee.
Camps run from 10am to 4pm and there is an option for extended hours from 9am to 5pm, with all who register for a full week also receiving a free t-shirt.
Sports Camps are taking place during the weeks of April 4-8, August 1-5, August 8-12, August 22-26 and August 29-September 2.

*The Queen Mary Students’ Union Community Sport programme aims to increase activity levels within Tower Hamlets, using students as sports coaches and officials.
Since August 2013 they have trained 90 students, facilitating over 1,000 hours of sport in the borough.
Through Community Sport, students can hugely increase their employability by taking on voluntary and paid placements with local sporting organisations.
