Hi All,

St. John's Academy undertook to run a four day Easter Camp over the Easter holidays which turned out to be a huge success despite some very mixed weather. 35-40 children were present each day ranging in ages 5-14.

The atmosphere throughout the week was one of excitement and unbound enthusiasm. The kids had great fun and will no doubt be back for more in the future.

Many thanks must go to those hard working people behind the scenes that make such weeks possible, and also to our dedicated young coaches who put such effort into the week to make it as enjoyable as possible for all the young children involved. The club will be safe in their hands in the future. A special thanks also must go to the Sligo Gaa coaches (Liam Óg, Benny and Ross) for their contribution.

There was also a talk about nutrition for the children by Gabriel McSharry which concentrated on teaching them the difference between good sugars and bad. An information leaflet was sent home which each child. It is important that we all do our bit to keep our kids healthy.

Our next big camp will be the Kelloggs Cúl Camp in July. We would like to encourage all our parents and coaches to promote what will be a great week for the young players in the St. John's Academy.

Places can be booked at https://www.kelloggsculcamps.gaa.ie/booking/?county=27&page=2

Finally there are a few photos attached that is just a snippet of what was a great week.

I would encourage everyone to friend our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter for more photo's and news.
