Rebel Óg Coaching organised 24 regional Kelloggs GAA Cúl Camps through July and August catering for 3000 children between the ages of 6 and 13.
The camp venues were strategically placed to allow children from as many areas as possible attend and were expertly led by our GDA’s. With the exception of some weather interruptions the camps are being hailed as a major success. Additional measures were in place around sanitation and compliance with Covid 19 guidelines with parents and children exercising great patience around the measures. The image of children kicking football, striking sliothars and having loads of fun was great to see given the lack of activity so far in 2020.
Rebel Óg Coaching are very grateful to all the clubs who gave up their club grounds to facilitate the running of the camps and to all the coaches who implemented a huge programme of fun and engaging activities for all the children.
Special mention must also go to the very successful 8 club run Cúl Camps in August catering for 500 children. The coordinators involved put in huge work to ensure the camps were compliant with Covid 19 guidelines and enjoyable for the children.
It is hoped that Cork clubs will be able to run a full programme of camps in 2021 similar to that of 2019 where 120 camps took place.
