Summer Camp success at Macclesfield Town
Friday 31st marked the final day of the Community Schemes holiday camps based at the Moss Rose stadium. With camps running for three weeks the trust has worked with over 100 participants from the local area across the six days, it has been a huge success.
Each day at the camps was different from children meeting members of the first team, winning match day tickets, being filmed for an advert for the football club to being the first individuals to test our the Community Schemes new nutrition workshop.
On Friday 17th & Friday 24th August the attendees got a special opportunity to talk to talk to and do a question and answer with Miles Welch-Heyes, Ben Stephens and Elliott Durrell. This allowed the
attendees to ask about where the players had played in the past and how they came involved in football.
Ben Stephens said “It’s been great to spend some time with the local children, I’m surprised with the level of questions we had, (laugh) we got a grilling!. I’m happy to do this anytime.”
On Thursday 23rd Big Brand Ideas came to our holiday camps and filmed the children while they used the new VR goggles. The children got to be
on the pitch while watching footage from the final game of the Title winning season. With footage from players walking out, in the changing rooms, different angles as the match was going on. Two lucky participants were interviewed to talk about their experience using the goggles
While the camps were going on the children got to work on their football skills, participate in penalty shoot-outs, skill challenges and also play plenty of mini matches and tournaments. A big thanks to Ash Grove who allowed us to use their outdoor facilities which allowed us to run this summer camp.
As we had a lot of interest in the next half term we have got a four-day holiday camp running in October half term.
