The Sport Ireland Campus has kept operational through most of the last 16 months but on a quieter basis with access largely limited to the elite athlete cohort.
This week though a higher-pitched noise with a greater decibel count has returned with the opening of the Kids Summer Camp series, in partnership once more with the National Dairy Council.
The Summer Camps were launched yesterday by double Olympian, David Matthews and Millie the Cow, still yet to make it to her first Olympics.
“We are thrilled to be able to run our summer camps this year and are following all practices in accordance with guidance from the Government, Sport Ireland and the health authorities,” said the Sport Ireland Campus’ Aidan McDevitt.
“We are providing a wide range of sports and activities each week of the camps and it is lovely to see the children and teenagers back being active in a social group setting. ”
“The idea of bringing in school sports day activities to the programme has been really well-received and this is a fun way to ensure they can all enjoy the traditional sports day activities in the setting of our world-class facilities.”
Given its popularity last year, each participant on this year’s camps will take part in an NDC Sports Day, encompassing Olympic style races and over 20 different sports.
There are preschool, kids and teen camps, as well as sport-specific ones in Gymnastics and football, as well as one specifically created for children with a disability.
