Fit for Sport Activity Camp Review

If you are a working parent you probably agree with me that finding good, reliable childcare is really important.  My children are still relatively young but  I think it’s crucial for them to keep active and be involved in sport activities. This is why I was really pleased when Fit for Sport got in touch and asked if we’d like to review one of their summer activity camps.

Their Activity Camps run every school holiday at over 100 venues across the country for children aged 4-12 and they are designed to engage all children through multi-sports, games and arts & crafts. With child obesity being such a big problem, physical activity is really important and I want my children to be sporty and healthy.

My booking was done over the phone (it can also be done online); it was very straight forward and quick. I was worried it was going to take too long or that they’d take my details incorrectly but a couple of minutes after my phone booking I had an email confirmation. Our closest Fit for Sport Activity Camp is at the Copper Box Arena in the Olympic Park which is great venue, very new and surrounded by a lot of green areas.

Fit for Sport activity camps run from 9.30 – 4.30 and they also offer extended hours from 8.30 -5.30. Working 9-5 we went for the extended hours option which suited us but we could have done with a little bit longer. I guess living in London commuting is a bit slower. This is one of the reasons why I wasn’t able to take too many pictures for this review.

Each day on arrival when signing the children in, they got a bracelet with the Fit for Sport telephone number (see picture below). This bracelet also contained a unique number which you had to provide at pick up time. I have never come across anything like this before but I was very impressed with it. Safeguarding and security are very important in childcare and I think this is a fantastic idea.

My son really enjoyed his time at the activity camp. Luckily the weather was great and they spent some time outdoors every day in the Olympic Park, running around. He also enjoyed the ball games and  board games activities.

One of the daily activities was swimming in the Olympic Pool which is close by. My son does not really enjoy swimming and he is also very conscious of getting changed in front of other people. One the first day, when mentioning he was not going to join in,  one of the carers did offer different choices for  getting changed  so he could join in. I was very impressed with this, as it would have been easy for the carers to just let him miss on the swimming.

I found Fit for Sport’s team extremely professional and really friendly.  The activities were varied, fun and perfect to encourage a healthy and active life. I could not recommend them enough.

    Fit for Sport sounds Wonderful. Physical Activity is important, nice that your son got the opportunity to try out the camp. It sounds great, like the idea of variety, good security in regards to children. Hope this type of scheme expands to encompass including more children in regular physical activities.

    Unfortunately the site says our nearest camp is too far away in Sheffield, maybe if we visit on a long weekend we could go.

    I have already lost over half of my body weight without the help of surgery and would love to be able to guide my children the right way too. Would be great to take them to a camp where they can learn rather than learning the hard way as I did.

    Fabulous idea. What a wonderful competition. It's difficult to get the kids interested in sports especially when the weather is awful and they just want to watch YouTube!
