Following on from our successful 2018 Summer Camp, Active Citizens (Part of West Midlands Police) and the West Midlands Police and Crimes Commissioner kindly sponsored the 2019 Summer Camps. Running from 22nd July through to the 30th August the free camps were split into 2 age groups. 8-12 year old and 13-16 year old. 3 sessions per week the course not only had its participants involved in Boxing, but a range of sports and fun activities (The coaches had fun too) Talks were also given by nutritionists to help give great advice to the participants, as well as a first aid course. You can see some of the fun below, in our galleries. Thanks to Active Citizens and we hope everyone enjoyed the camp!
