Welcome to Day 1 of our "At Home" Online Easter Resource Camp!
Welcome to Day 1 of our "At Home” Camp to keep the kids active this Easter break.
In today's session we have a great mix of Fun Home Sporting Challenges, Gymnastics Exercises, Arts & Crafts, a Fun Quiz, and much much more... PLUS, Irish Olympic Diver Oliver Dingley answers a few questions about being an international athlete!
The time your kids spend on these activities is up to you.
Throughout this week of our "At Home" camp we are giving away a €50 Sport Ireland Campus voucher daily for the best photo of your child trying our activities. To be in with a chance of entering you can either send a photo to MultiSportsTeam@sportirelandcampus.ie or tag Sport Ireland Campus on social media!
Please note; parental supervision will be required during activities. Video and resource packs will be provided each day to create your own experience at home.
Craig and Fiona from our Gymnastics Academy team are going to take you through some Jumps, Rolls and more.
Before starting these exercises, please ensure you have a wide clear space (about 2 metres) where you can do each of these exercises safely. You will also need a colourful object to use as your focus point.
