Banana maker Fyffes and Dundalk FC have reopened their summer football camps, which will be held at Oriel Park, home of the Irish football club.
The camp, open to boys and girls aged 6-14, will run from 10.30 am – 3 pm daily, and the next three camps will run from 22nd-26th July, 12th-16th August and 19th-23rd August.
Each camp is based around structured coaching sessions with qualified coaches and features lots of challenges and games.
Emma Hunt-Duffy, Fyffes marketing manager, said that the camps have proven to be “a great way for local kids to keep fit and healthy, improve their football skills and most important of all – have lots of fun with their pals”.
'Comes To Life'
In addition to the training and fun, each participating child will also receive a full camp kit, certificate of completion and a football, as well as the chance to meet and greet some of Dundalk FC’s first team players.
Dundalk FC's community officer, Liam Burns, said that the club is delighted to host another season of the programme.
“The place comes to life every summer with lots of kids having fun, getting active, enjoying their football and interacting with kids from different social backgrounds,” Burns said.
“It also gives the kids a great opportunity to interact with their first team heroes to create memories to last a lifetime.”
