May Whitsun Holiday kids activities with Chelmsford City Council

Chelmsford City Council has a huge range of May Whitsun holiday activities with Get In! Active Fun and Get In! Skills Clinics taking place at Riverside Ice and Leisure Centre, South Woodham Ferrers Leisure Centre, Dovedale Leisure Centre, Chelmsford Sport and Athletics Centre (CSAC) and Chelmsford Equestrian Centre. Skills Clinics and Active Fun courses offer great fun and learning for children aged between two to 16, helping them to enjoy being active and develop a passion for sport that will last for life. The courses will run from Friday 26 May to Friday 2 June.

Get In! Skills Clinics are short, intensive courses designed to give a foundation in a sport. Skills Clinics offer a fantastic range of fun activities for those looking to improve their abilities or to learn to swim, cycle, ice skate or even horse ride. For the future stars of track and field there are also athletics masterclasses available where activities will include long jump, hurdles, javelin and middle distance running. The ‘London Legacy’ is a two-day course running on 1 and 2 June, that will cover many of the Olympic events, aimed at 6 -12 year olds and it will have a finale competition with prizes.

Chelmsford City Council’s Cabinet Member for Leisure, Councillor Julia Jeapes, says: “Skills Clinics are a fantastic way to learn a new activity or improve existing skills, as well as keeping children fit and healthy during the Whitsun holiday”.

Chelmsford City Council also offers a range of Get In! Active Fun courses, which focus on getting children active and enjoying themselves and include activities such as street golf, go karting, karate, scuba diving, trampolining, Disney dance, bouncy castles and mini inflatable jet skis. For the mini popstars out there, a Little Mix Workshop on Tuesday 30 May will take place at CSAC, where they can dress up as Little Mix stars and learn the dance routines.
