Healthy Kidz is a holistic health and well-being programme that delivers fun and engaging physical activity and sports sessions and events to schools, clubs, community groups and councils throughout Northern Ireland.
The effects of Covid-19 and lockdowns have been detrimental to everyone but, in particular to children. Children's mental, emotional and physical health has been seriously affected, due to lockdowns, lack of physical activity and time socialising with friends. Through Healthy Kidz we aim to provide all children inclusively physical activity sessions during and after school. From the exiting of lockdown Healthy Kidz on a daily basis has improved the mental, physical and emotional well-being of thousands of children throughout Northern Ireland.
Our vision through Crowdfunding is to deliver four Mega camps in the Summer across four different venues, delivering to hundreds of children, providing each child with an opportunity to attend one of the camps at half price of £20. Match funding from Sport NI will help to reduce costs for children attending these camps.
Your support will enable us to:
- To increase the physical, general, and emotional health of children.
- Deliver an inclusive programme that leaves no child behind no matter what their physical mental or emotional capabilities may be.
- Provide children from all backgrounds to attend one of our camps for half price of £20.
- The four camp locations:
1. Derrytrasna 3G Monday 4th July - Friday 8th July
2. Portadown People's Park Monday 11th July - Friday 15th July
3. Newry AFC Monday 18th July - Friday 22nd July
4. Clann Eireann YC Monday 25th July - Friday 29th July
So What’s New in 2022
Due to the unbelievable success of our summer camp in Portadown Peoples Park, we wanted to extend to 3 new locations, offering new Kidz and their families the Healthy Kidz camp experience. We are heading to Newry City AFC, Derrytrasna 3G and Clann Eireann YC in Lurgan for opportunities.
Offering new extended hours to all the camps allows parents the opportunity for early drop-offs to having new sports available such as baseball, basketball, hockey and even golf.
There will be a further focus this year offering fun, engaging health and wellbeing sessions for all the Kidz attending our camps. Furthermore, we have our resident nutrition expert explaining the benefits of healthy eating helps healthy minds.
Healthy Kidz currently has 50 coaches who will lead these Summer Camps, all our coaches are qualified to a very high level in their chosen disciplines.
Why support us?
Your support will allow hundreds of children to attend a week-long summer camp across 4 venues, helping our fantastic coaches increase the physical, mental and emotional health of children across Northern Ireland.
