February Half Term will see the Huddersfield Town Foundation deliver a week of free virtual activities for primary and secondary school children!

The camps, which are supported by Kirklees Council, will give young people the chance to take part in a range of sports and activities from the comfort of their own home between Monday 15 and Friday 19 February 2021.

The week has been split into two timetables, one for 5-11-year olds and another for 12-16-year olds.

5-11-year olds can look forward to a range of PE sessions focusing on different skills, a live bake-along, Arts and Crafts, a live dance session and plenty more.

For the older age groups there will be live social action and youth voice sessions, LGBTQ+ activity sessions, Boxing & Martial Arts with external providers and more.

You can access the full timetables by clicking below:

All live sessions will take place on Zoom, which you will need to create an account for.  Our staff team have also completed a range of resources that can be downloaded and completed in your own time.

To register your interest in any of the sessions, please email sofie.armitage@htafcfoundation.com.

You will then need to complete an online participant registration form before Sofie can send you the relevant joining links and resources for download.

It would also be great if you could share photos and/or videos of your child taking part in any of the week’s activities on social media – you can tag the Town Foundation with the following handles:

Ahead of the virtual camps Katie Suttron, Head of Education and Community Activity at the Town Foundation, commented:

“Providing opportunities for young people during the school holidays is a key part of our remit and it’s great to be able to still provide these, albeit virtually during the current lockdown. We look forward to seeing plenty of smiley faces next week!

Our thanks must go to Kirklees Council, who have provided funding towards this initiative. We’re proud to have their backing and look forward to continuing our work together going forwards.”
