Football Camp

We run football camps every school holiday, to keep your football-mad children learning, developing, making new friends, and having a great time.

Do you have a behaviour management procedure?
Yes we do, at Moving Matters we believe in the importance of mutual respect between children and adults at camp, children are made aware of these expectations at the beginning of the camp day. We focus on positive reinforcement to manage challenging behaviour and we manage children’s behaviour in the same way we would within the school environment. We reserve the right to exclude a child if consistently challenging behaviour is displayed at camp.

We have a morning, lunch and afternoon break.

During the day we have 4 different activity sessions at each camp.
