The event follows on from last year winning formula of Fun, Fun and even more Fun for the Children will take place in St Marys Park from Wednesday 13th of August to Saturday 16th of August. The camp which caters for Children from 5 years of age to 13 is always a massive hit with all the local children. At the launch Brian Sherry, the Faughs Juvenile Chairperson outlined what lay ahead for the young boys and girls from the Castleblayney area.
The camp kicks off on Wednesday the 13th of August at 10am to 2pm daily and will finish with the now famous Club Bar B Que on Saturday lunchtime. The emphasise of the Faughs Summer camp would again centre around FUN and it is hoped that the children have four days that they can look back in years to come with great memories. The summer camp games are designed to increase fitness levels in a fun way. The children will be divided according to age with training programmes devised according to their skill levels and delivered by the large amount of qualified Faughs coaches and players. Children aged from 5 to 13 from throughout the area as well as visitors home on holidays are welcome. In total over 70 adults will be involved in helping organise the camp from backroom staff to coaches.
Speaking at the Faughs Summer Camp launch main sponsor Ray Mc Ardle from Mc Mahon Centra said “We are delighted to be once again associated with this event, this is the highlight of many children’s summer and the Castleblayney Faughs must be commended on what is a great initiative. It ties in well with Centra’s association with the GAA at a national level. The Summer Camp gets young children use to playing sport in a fun, friendly, safe environment. The Faughs Club are continuously working hard at providing a yearlong programme of events which are driven at improving fitness for all our children, they are great example of what the GAA can bring to the local community.”
