Midlothian Council to Launch Children's Summer Activities

Midlothian Council to Launch Children's Summer Activities
30 June 2014 1615 Views No comments

If you're looking to get your children active in the water this summer, you may find that your local council is putting on activities over the next few months. Many areas are set to benefit from summer clubs that get their children playing sports, trying new arts and crafts and getting into the water.

One place that has a fantastic range of activities available for children during July and August is Midlothian in Scotland. The council has arranged for a great programme – called the Summer of Sports – to run until August. To make the most of it, head over to the council website to book places as quickly as possible.

Children can take advantage of a number of activities out of the water through the Summer of Sports scheme, including hockey, rugby and gymnastics.

If it's swimming that your youngsters are most interested in, they might want to try out Midlothian's Aquatics Camps. The camps provide the opportunity for snorkelling, aqua fun, mini water polo, diving and playing on a range of pool inflatables.

Children will be put into groups for the activities, giving them the chance to play and learn with children of their own age, helping them to meet new friends as well as try new things. As well as being a great chance to learn new swimming and sport skills, the camps will keep your children active over the summer period.

If your children want to get involved with the water groups but maybe aren't confident enough, you can give them a boost by providing them with a buoyancy aid.

While all groups will be adequately supervised, a buoyancy aid – such as the Original Konfidence Jacket – could help to give that little bit of extra support and encouragement that can get youngsters feeling happy in the water.

For those who don't live near Midlothian, keep an eye out for summer activities being run in your local area that could keep your kids active and happy this summer, as well as improve their confidence in the water.
