Summer Football Camp

Once again during the “Summer” month of July Sense over Sectarianism worked in partnership with North Kelvin Sports to deliver an action packed 4 week long Summer Camp for Primary School age children in the North West of Glasgow.

The excellent facilities at Garscube Sports Complex allowed the delivery of a variety of Football activities in all weather and a daily workshop at lunchtime led by either SOS Development Officer Mark Adams, Bridges & Barriers Project Coordinator Andrew Westcott or Scott Craig who is both a North Kelvin coach and SOS Schools Officer.

A wide social mix of young people from 5 to 12 years old, from different schools and different areas of the city, from a host of ethnic groups and religions attended the camp over the 4 week period, giving the camp great diversity.

An average of over 40 players a day took part in a range of football related games and challenges including camp favourites, “Lightening”, Kings & Queens” and the “Crossbar Challenge”.

The daily workshops covered a multitude of discussions. These included debates about different forms of prejudice and discrimination, also around acceptable behaviour playing and attending football matches and lots about the history of football in Scotland and why stereotypes still exist in the Scottish game. To name but a few.

There are lots of pictures of the camp available to view on the SOS Twitter account @SOS_Glasgow.
