This is the second year Ignite Sport had the opportunity to take a team up to the Riverbend Sports Camp in Havelock North. 22 young people and six leaders made up the total team of 28 to take on the challenges of the weekend. It was fantastic to have 14 of the young people from last year come for a second year running, which along with the eight new additions gave us a really strong team.
In this our second year we finished a very close second place which is an improvement on last year’s 5th place finish. The team won six of the different sporting events, taking out Softball, Indoor Bowls, Spikeball, Touch Rugby, Women’s Basketball and Netball.
Overall the weekend was a mixture of lots of great sporting action in a supportive team family environment which made this year’s camp another really positive experience. Here is some of the feedback from the young people who attended:
We are looking forward to continuing to keep up the connections with this awesome group and are excited to hopefully attend camp again in 2019.
A massive thanks to the Ann Sinclair Trust for helping subsidise the camp and to everybody who came, especially the young people, who made this camp such a success!
