Sports Plus is for young people who are serious about sport and play regularly in a club or team. There is over five hours of sport a day and so we want to ensure that young people have the stamina to meet the demands of the week, enabling them to progress in their sport. If a young person does not play their chosen sport regularly in a club or team we will contact the parent/guardian to discuss whether Sports Plus is a suitable camp for the young person and may request a reference from a coach/PE teacher to support the booking. If you would like to discuss this before making a booking please contact the office on 01869 255630 or email sportspluscamp@christiansinsport.org.uk.

Age
Sports Plus is for young people in the following school years in January 2017:

 - Year 7 to Year 12 (England & Wales)
 - Year 8 to Year 13 (Northern Ireland)
 - P7 to S5* (Scotland) 
*17 year olds who have just finished S6 can also attend.

Cost
Costs for 2017 are still being finalised but in 2016 residential Sports Plus cost £290 for each young person, with a reduced rate of £160 also available. The reduced rate is subsidised by the Sports Plus Bursary Fund and is accessible for families to which the full cost is not affordable.

Sports Plus Bursary Fund
Each year we endeavour to make sure young people can attend Sports Plus even if they are financially restricted. Over the past six years the Bursary Fund has enabled over 1,000 young people to attend Sports Plus who would otherwise have been unable to. You can make a donation to the Bursary Fund alongside payment for a young person or as a separate donation. If you would like further details about the Sports Plus Bursary Fund please contact the office on the details below.
