YOUNGSTERS will be doing cartwheels when they hear about activity camps being organised by Renfrewshire Leisure.

And they can step up to the mark if they come along to dance and gymnastics camps for children of primary school age.


The camps are being held between 10am and 3pm at Renfrew Sports Centre from Monday, July 22 to Friday, July 26; Park Mains High School, from Monday, July 29 to Friday, August 2 and St Benedict’s High School, in Linwood, between Tuesday, August 6 and Friday, August 9.

And they will be shown gymnastic moves including handstands, cartwheels, round-offs, splits and bridges, rolls, runs, jumps and dismounts as well as skills using balls, ribbons and ropes.

Qualified coaches and co-ordinators lead all the sessions, which are part of a wide range of activities and summer camps organised by Renfrewshire Leisure during the school holidays.

Chairperson of Renfrewshire Leisure, Councillor Lisa-Marie Hughes said: “Not only are these dance and gymnastic sessions great fun for the children, they’ll be taught new skills and improve their confidence.”
