CHUMS - Easter Camp 2018

This Easter we're running our popular CHUMS sports camps for two weeks for 5-14 year-olds, so sign up now! The camps are run by our own friendly, qualified staff using the fantastic facilities available here at our Colchester Campus, which includes our new £12 million Essex Sport Arena. Children will improve their skills across a variety of sports and learn how to play as a team, but most importantly, they will have lots of fun and meet some new friends. Activities include professional coaching in sports like tennis and football, as well as other fun team-based games.

If it’s Junior CHUMS you are looking for, we will have a fun-filled programme of over 25 different sports in favourites such as football, touch rugby, dodgeball, camouflage and kwik cricket, as well as offering professional coaching in tennis and climbing.

Mini CHUMS is personalised for 5-8 years old, with a fun range of different sports mixed with group games, tag games and arts and crafts.
