BASE camps

What are BASE Camps?

bactive Sport and Exercise (BASE) Camps are available at Richard Dunn Sports Centre and Zara Sports Centre, Heaton, giving children between the ages of 5 and 13, the chance to try out a host of new sports, as well as practising the sports they love.

Our highly trained coaches run a variety of sessions, allowing the children to experience something different, perfect their skills, and make new friends during the school holidays in a safe environment.

Football, basketball, tennis, and athletics will be on offer as well as some lesser practiced sports such as handball, trampolining, dodge ball, and volleyball.

You can choose to attend a full camp or single days at both venues.
