BuccaneerBlades Summer Camp (Central). 

10am -4pm Monday 5th August – 9th August 2013 Leighterton Primary School, Gloucestershire.

  

This camp focuses on the age old skills of archery and fencing as well as being a great camp for new experiences. Great for semi and non sporty children, they are sports which help develop concentration and coordination and give a real sense of achievement.

Archery is already a success in the USA where studies have shown that students who participated in archery, enjoyed school more, showed improvements in behaviour, attendance and achievement at school and fencing helps,

  • Children learn good sportsmanship and self-discipline.
  • They learn to compete independently as well as for a team.
  • They learn to enjoy winning and profit from defeats.
  • They become physically fit and healthy.
  • They learn to make complex decisions.
  • They analyze problems, and think fast.

This camp has national coaches in both disciplines and will run from Monday – Friday 10am – 4pm

Cost is £240.00.

This training camp will give them the chance to try new sports, get competition experience, plus the opportunity to fence and shoot against new opponents and work 1-2-1 on new skills.

There are only 30 spaces available in order to maximise the coaching opportunities and it will be strictly on a first-come-first served basis.
