Easter Soccer Camp

With the schools on holiday, we have been running our Easter Soccer Camp at the Queen of the South Arena. It's the most successful camp to date with over sixty kids taking part in the five day event.

Community development officer, Dan Armstrong says the hard work has paid off "Its been in the planning for a few weeks now, we contacted schools and different clubs to reach out to kids from across the region. We want to get as many children in and around the club as possible as often as possible.  The kids are a massive part of the club and will play a big part in the future".

The camp has been structured to give the children attending as wide a variety as possible, Dan continued "The morning sessions are all skill based when we focus on passing, dribbling, shooting etc and then in the afternoon we have tournaments. We have the Champions League and World Cup, as we want to let them imagine what its like to be a professional footballer. It's all about making memories for the kids".

With boys and girls of all ages from P1 to P7, it's the biggest attendance to date and we want to keep building on that and to make each camp bigger.  Each child taking part will receive a certificate, medal and a voucher for the club shop.

The camp has been running daily from 10am - 3pm, and on Tuesday the children received a special visit from the first team squad after they'd finished the training session at Palmerston.
