It is a chance for both current members and non-members to see what the club has to offer and get active in their holiday.

The club runs the camp over three consecutive weeks and also during the October and Easter holidays.

Club manager Ailsa Polworth said: “For a lot of them, they aren’t members. It’s maybe their first time.

“It’s to give them an opportunity to give them a chance to try some new sports and its just for them to have fun during the holidays. It’s quite relaxed and we want them to be here and having fun and enjoying themselves while they’re here.”
