Foundation’s Spirit of Adventure!
The team at AFC Fylde Community Foundation were determined to give local youngsters a spirit of adventure during a recent Activity Camp.
Trick or Treat might have been off the agenda due to Coronavirus restrictions, but a Halloween themed week of activities ensured children had a scarily good time!
The ever-popular camps took place as planned at Kirkham St Michaels Primary School and BActive Leisure Centre, Warton and proved a huge hit all involved.
With the current circumstances surrounding Covid-19, the charitable Foundation ensured safety was the main priority with limited numbers, social distancing measures and bubbles set up throughout the week.
Nevertheless, the precautionary measures failed to dampen anyone’s enthusiasm and all of the children in attendance were able to feel a sense of normality and enjoy playing with their friends again in a structured, fun-focused environment.
Throughout the week the children were able to take part in a variety of sports and games suited to all ages and abilities with the highlight taking place on the closing day with a Halloween Party.
Fantastic fancy dress costumes, party games and a variety of spooky activities, ensured everyone enjoyed a great end to a memorable week.
Foundation Senior Sports Coordinator Dan Crofts was delighted with the success of the activity camps. He said: “The whole team at the Foundation worked incredibly hard and took great pride in making sure the activity camps were safe but fun.
“We understood that local children were not going to be able to experience Halloween as they normally would and that’s why we were determined to run such a memorable activity camp.”
“We are all really happy at how well things turned out. The smiles on the children’s faces proved what a huge success the camps were and to be able to achieve that in such challenging times was a great achievement for everyone involved.”
