Dear Parent / Carer / School
Holiday activities and food programme – Summer 2021
Durham County Council has received central government funding to deliver a series of sports and swimming camps with food programmes FREE throughout County Durham this summer.
As a result of the holiday activities with food programme funding we want children who attend this provision to:
· Eat more healthily over the school holidays
· Be more active during the school holidays
· Take part in engaging and enriching activities which support the development of resilience, character, and wellbeing along with their wider educational attainment.
Our sports camps are available for your child / children FREE of charge and will include a packed lunch including a freshly made sandwich, fruit, water, and a snack. The dates and times are below for your area:
