Easter Sports and Dance Camps

Children across the Bradford district are invited to try out some new sports, reignite an interest in more traditionally popular sports or bust some moves at dance at classes over the Easter Holidays.

Bradford Council’s sport and leisure service is organising the Base Camps and Dance Camps which are the ideal way to keep youngsters occupied during the school break

The Base Camps offer the opportunity for children aged five to 13 to try out activities like dodge ball and volleyball as well as have a go at more popular sports such as football, cricket, basketball and athletics.

The Dance Camps include street dance, break dance and musical theatre and on the last day the youngsters will give a performance to their parents and carers. The Dance Camps are being led by Dance for Life, a Bradford based project offering classes, workshops, after school clubs, performance opportunities and dance training schemes across the district in many different styles of dance.

The three-day camps will be at Richard Dunn Sports Centre from Tuesday 11 April to Thursday 13 April and the four-day camps at Zara Sports Centre from Tuesday 18 April to Friday 21 April. Children can also attend any of the camps for just the day.

The sessions run from 9am to 3.30pm and kids will need to bring suitable kit with trainers and a packed lunch with drinks.

Children can attend the full three day or four day camps or can just do individual days.

The three-day Sports Camp costs £35 for the first child and £27 for additional children and Bradford Leisure cardholders (formerly Passport to Leisure). The four day camp costs £46 per child and £35 for additional children and Bradford Leisure cardholders (formerly Passport to Leisure). Children can take part in day sessions for £14 and £11 for Bradford Leisure cardholders (formerly Passport to Leisure).

The three-day Dance Camp costs £30 for the first child and £23 for additional children and Bradford Leisure cardholders (formerly Passport to Leisure). The four-day Dance Camp costs £40 per for the first child and £30 for additional children and Bradford Leisure cardholders (formerly Passport to Leisure). Children can take part in day sessions for £12 and £9 for Bradford Leisure cardholders (formerly Passport to Leisure).

Coun Sarah Ferriby, Bradford Council’s Executive Member for Environment, Sport and Sustainability, said: “Our Base Camps and Dance Camps are always extremely  popular and are a great way for youngsters to try things, improve their skills and make new friends in a safe and enjoyable environment. I’m sure they will have lots of fun.”

Easter Holidays Minecraft Meet

Are you looking for a fun activity to keep your primary age pupils entertained during the Easter holidays?

The Curriculum Innovation team are running 4 Minecraft meets on Thursday, 20 April  & Friday, 21 April at The Innovation Centre Bradford.

The sessions are aimed at 6 to 11 year olds and are £8 per child.

We will use Minecraft EDU on laptops to run two activities in each session. In activity one we will travel to the Star Wars Universe. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to fly a TIE Fighter or to visit the Ewoks on Endor?  Activity two will be a Minecraft Building Challenge where you will have the opportunity to work on your own or as a team under the expert guidance of one of our Minecraft enthusiasts.

As a momento of the day you will be given a free photo of you in a Minecraft world to take away with you. You do not need to bring any equipment along – all resources and laptops will be provided.  There is no need for parents/guardians to stay – all our staff are DBS registered and the sessions are led by experienced classroom practitioners, but if you feel more comfortable remaining on the premises we have a space where you can wait.

If your child is a Minecraft enthusiast then this will represent the ideal activity for the half term.
