MK Dons Sport & Education Trust provided a Half Term Activity Camp with support from Brioche Pasquier and Eat Your Heart Out.
The Half Term Activity Camp ran over a four-week period during the Summer Holidays. These camps provided many activities for the young participants, some of which were football related.
Board games, physical exercise, arts & crafts and many more fun opportunities were offered to the attendees. The Half Term Activity Camp was so popular that it saw over 1000 participants throughout its four-week period.
Although SET managed the ‘HAF Camp’, it couldn’t have been as successful without the support of the Sport & Education Trust’s Principal Partner Brioche Pasquier and the local Milton Keynes Eat Your Heart Out food company.
Brioche Pasquier contributed a great amount to these events, which helped to replenish the youthful participants with delicious Pasquier treats throughout the ‘HAF Camp’ course.
Eat Your Heart Out, a local café and catering service based in Milton Keynes, also assisted the SET throughout this project. Every day, the company would deliver fresh sandwiches and other food items for the groups over the four-week period.
MK Dons SET would like to express their thanks and gratitude to all those involved who helped support a successful holiday camp, as well as a massive thank you to all the participants who enjoyed their time during the course.
A handful of the coaches who helped deliver the Holiday Camps shared their thoughts following the conclusion of a successful summer:
MK Dons Set Casual Coach Dan O’Connor said “I had a great time delivering this summer's HAF programme, it was a real success. Seeing new participants and different characters enjoying various activities with smiles on their faces across the summer filled us all with joy.”
Owen Lander, another SET Casual Coach, who supported the HAF Camps added “The HAF Summer programme was an amazing experience for myself and the other coaches.
“This is because we were able to witness all the joy the groups gained from their creativity of producing their own games and making fantastic arts & crafts. Helping them with this creative work and witnessing the positive impact it was having on the participants was a joy for us all.”
