The 27th annual summer camp runs from Saturday, 29th July to Saturday, 5th August 2017 at the Avon Tyrrell Youth Club Residential Centre, set in beautiful grounds in the New Forest at Bransgore, Hampshire. Facilities include a lodge, a lake, heated outdoor swimming pool, sports fields, hard courts and its own woods.
Who can go?
The camp is open to all young people aged 10 to 16 years. Younger children can also go providing they have a parent at the camp. Numbers are limited to 50.
Who runs the camp?
The camp is organised under the auspices of the Norfolk Korfball Association and staffed by parents and experienced volunteers, with a ratio of at least one adult to five children. There are qualified instructors for activities such as swimming, canoeing and archery. Parents, youth leaders and general helpers are welcomed at the camp to help, supervise, organise and have lots of fun. The cost to helpers is £95 to cover food and accommodation.
There are lots of sports activities on site including swimming, kayak canoeing, archery, rope challenge, orienteering, football, tennis, badminton, cricket, rounders, table tennis, volleyball and of course korfball. There will be excursions and trips out and competitions and non-korfball activities organised on camp. There is a big ‘bash’ at the end of the week and the chance to beat the korfball team from the coaching course in the annual grudge game.
Accommodation and what to bring
Accommodation is camping in an area of the Centre’s grounds with access to a toilet block and showers. Individuals should bring their own tent, sleeping bag, washing kit, towels, a torch, swimming gear and plenty of appropriate clothing. Food is provided and cooked at the camp. Please let them know of any special dietary requirements before the camp starts. Insect repellent and sun cream is good idea and you may like to bring extra sports equipment and games or musical instruments to play in the evenings.
