Looking for a fun, active alternative for the kids this school holidays? Sports camps are the perfect way to get kids active and the new Activ8 sports camps provide inclusive, fun and challenging sporting activities for children aged 4 to 12 years.

Are you tired of the kids spending hours in front of the television?  Is it impossible to pry the iPad from their hands? With concerns of children’s weight on the rise in Australia, being active these holidays has never been more important.

If your kids aren’t super athletic, or just haven’t found a sport they enjoy yet, why not send them to a sports camp that caters for all abilities? Activ8 sports camps are a great way to get the kids moving with a memorable week of sporting fun.  Activ8 is a revolutionary Australian sports camp that combines the concepts and values of  sports camps, holiday camps and activity holidays.

Founders of Activ8 Phil and Julie Seed understand the challenges some families face dealing with busy schedules and keeping kids entertained on holidays. With their background in business and sport’s education, they developed a holiday camp that encourages kids to develop their skills in a range of sporting activities or even just have a go.

“Activ8 draws young people into a community where they are encouraged to be together, learn together, be active together and build their sense of both collective and individual self-worth by achieving in a raft of activities with others,” said Phil.

Throughout their time at Activ8 sports camp children will be given the opportunity to experience over 20 sporting activities. A typical day  at an Activ8 sports camp is unique and varied,  for instance kids can enjoy basketball and cricket in the morning and then dance and swimming activities in the afternoon.

Retiring headmaster of Anglican Church Grammar School, Jonathan Headsmen joined Activ8 early in the development process as a Non-Executive Director. An experienced educator Mr Headsmen is excited about the important role the coaches and teachers will play at the camps.

“One aspect of why Activ8 is such an exciting concept is that the young people will be led by carefully selected adults who will act as excellent role models.”

Whether your child loves to play sport or is just a beginner, the Activ8 teachers and coaches will provide an inclusive fun environment for all participants. This diverse range of activities or Multi-Active program that Activ 8 offers is suitable for children of various abilities.

If your kids need to spend more time at the camp than the standard 9am til 4pm don’t stress, Activ8 also offers before and after care, when kids can enjoy creative activities like arts and crafts,  reading and quizzes. Activ8’s sports camps are held at high quality facilities with age appropriate equipment  across Australia starting in Brisbane and the Gold Coast . The first camp dates are quickly approaching and will be held at Moreton Bay College in January.

For the larger families or groups of friends Activ8 sports camps offer a generous discount for multiple children attending, so larger families don’t have to stress about cost. This great opportunity to get the kids active this school holidays is sure to fill up quickly so secure your spot today.
