Kids summer camp 2021 – what a success

02 August 2021

What a weekend we had from 23rd to 25th July, with a sold out kids camp held in beautiful weather.

It was great to see so many kids with such great smiles, with the youngest kids on the 3G pitch and the older minis on the grass pitch. All the coaches had a great time too, ably assited by so many youth players as helpers.

The club wish to thank in particular Gavan Dungan & Grant Grieve, who put in so much effort in organising the whole camp – this served as Gavan handing over the minis co-ordinator role to Grant. Gavan: Thank you; Grant: we wish you the very best of luck in your new role.

We also thank all minis coaches who volunteered their time across the 3 days and all youth players who helped out manage the groups. Particular thanks and well done to our youngest group of kids and coaches – welcome to the club and see you all in September!

Thank you to Aisling & Peter Ellis for feeding the coaches with Sandwiches. They were demolished!

Thanks to those who managed the Sunday BBQ & cake sale: Andy Litchfield, Aidan Carr, Shaun Gilbride, Aislinn Duffy & Carl Birney, plus all others who helped out.

The cake sale was a massive success – thanks to all the kids parents who donated & purchased cakes, and particular thanks once again to Derek & Mary O’Leary who again donated many trays of beautiful cakes. it really was wow!

Thanks again to our photographers: Gerry Weldon for our group photograph & Michael Donoghue for great action photos.

The camp finished on Sunday with another all-in water fight out on the pitches. everyone enjoyed the cooling effect in the significant heat of the sunny day. WELL DONE EVERYONE on another great weekend for Skerries Rugby.
