02 Oct Kids have half-term healthy fun with Chelmsford City Council
Half-term break can whizz by in a flurry of excitement or drag along in boredom, depending on the activities you choose to keep your children busy. Chelmsford City Council is launching a great way for kids to stay healthy and have fun over the half-term with its Get In! Skills Clinics and Active Fun sessions.
Councillor Julia Jeapes says: “My aim as the Cabinet Member for Leisure is to give children every opportunity to stay fit and healthy, to give them the very best start. To learn a new sport, or to improve their skill in an activity they already love is the building block to stay fit for life”.
Get In! Skills Clinics and Active Fun are ideal for children aged between 3 and 16 years of age and offer a huge range of supervised activities at a choice of three locations in and around the city: Chelmsford Sport and Athletics Centre, Dovedale Sports Centre and South Woodham Ferrers Leisure Centre. Councillor Jeapes continued: “The Council’s Get In! sessions have been designed to keep children engaged, healthy and most importantly, to have fun over the half-term. The Get In! courses will ensure that they never have a dull moment”. Please note that children aged three will need to be accompanied by a parent/carer for the duration of the session.
Between the hours of 9am and 5pm, parents can leave their children in the care of friendly, qualified staff and coaches at Get In! City Camps for a jam-packed half or full day of indoor and outdoor activities from Monday 22 – Friday 26 October. Children will have the opportunity to make new friends and have fun and there’s also an option for children to arrive early or be picked up late. The early bird prices end on Tuesday 9 October, so time is running out to take advantage of the lower prices. Whole day activities are £25 (£30 full price), whilst half-day activities are £12.50 (£15 full price). To discover more, visit www.chelmsford.gov.uk/citycamps, or call 01245 606707.
