We will try to mirror our exisitng multi-sport camp programme as much as we can within Scottish Government and Sport Governing Body guidelines, but throughout each of our sessions our priority will be on safety and fun.

The camp is open to children aged 5-11 (P1-P7) and sessions will offer a wide variety of fun activity, plenty of breaks and the opportunity for quiet time and reading in dedicated safe zones. A sample of the activities on offer are:

  • Frisbee-golf 
  • Capture the flag
  • Traditional playground games
  • Orienteering
  • Foot-golf
  • Teambuilding games
  • Story time for some of our younger participants
  • Sport specific sessions such as tennis, rugby, football, handball
  • Quiet zones will be made available for children to read
  • Team quizzes 

Plus a whole lot more!

We are also grateful to our friends within Active Schools and Active Fife who have shared their Social distancing PE resource pack, which has been used for delivery within Fife Council’s Covid-19 hubs throughout the Summer.

Please note:

  • Some areas of the facility will have floor markings and signage installed to ensure distancing rules are followed during certain activities
  • Under Government guidance coaches may wish to wear face-coverings or masks, so please inform your child prior to their arrival so this isn't a suprise to them

Important information for parents

Working together to deliver a fun, safe camp

We all have a role to play in the safe and smooth running of the camp. The Saints Sport team has been working hard to prepare the facilities and ensure all relevant risk assessments and procedures are in place. Our coaches are also busy planning lots of exciting activities to keep your children entertained.

We also need your help and here we outline the role that parents and children have to play:

Role of the parent

  • Reassure your child that Saints Sport have taken every step possible to keep them safe and remind them that they must stay 2m away from coaches at all times
  • If you or anyone from your household is shielding you must stay away before, during and after the camp
  • If your child has any symptoms of Covid-19 they should not be brought to the camp
  • Please follow the guidelines in the dropping off and collecting your child section
  • Please ensure your child has brought everything they need for the day's activity. Please refer to the what to bring guidance.

After the session:

  • Inform a member of staff if your child shows any symptoms of Covid-19
  • Please follow the guidelines in the dropping off and collecting your child section

Role of the child

Before the session:

  • If you are feeling unwell, please let someone at home know
  • Wash your hands regularly with soap and water for 20 seconds, including just before you leave to come to the camp
  • Make sure your shoe laces are tied
  • When you arrive you will be shown where to wash your wands with the hand sanitiser

During the session:

  • Have lots of fun!
  • Listen to your coaches
  • Do not touch equipment that is not yours
  • Stay a minimum of 2m away from your coaches
  • If you need to sneeze or cough please do so into your elbow and then wash your hands. Your coach will show you where to do this
  • When asked by your coach, wash your hands with the hand sanitiser provided. This will happen when you arrive and leave each day as well as before and after each session
  • Remember to have lots of fun!

After the session:

  • Please stay with your coach and follow their instructions to leave the session safely
  • Wash your hands with the hand sanitiser provided before leaving
  • Ensure you take all of your things with you when you leave
  • Stay at least 2m away from others out-with your family as you leave
