Kelloggs GAA Cúl Camps
The 2012 Kelloggs GAA Cúl Camps launched at Croke Park today. In the past six years, close to half a million children between 6 and 12 years of age have taken part in GAA Cúl Camps. These camps are fast becoming an important part of an active summer for many families across Ireland, with 80,000 children expected to take part this year.
Summer camps are a great way to introduce children to support, to help them develop their skills, and to encourage them to be more active. Of course, in our current economy, the financial cost of these camps is a major concern, and a stumbling block for a lot of families. To help with the cost of the GAA Cúl Camps, promotional packs of Kellogg’s Corn Flakes and Kellogg’s Rice Krispies will feature a unique code, which can be used online by parents to receive a €5 discount off the fee of €55 for the 2012 Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camps. The unique codes will be printed on the inside of promotional packs, available in stores from mid-April to August 2012 and one code can be used per child, per registration, to avail of the €5 discount. Parents, simply log on to www.gaa.ie/kelloggsculcamps to avail of this discount. Further discounts are available to families that register more than one child for a 2012 Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camp, making them one of the most affordable national summer camps.
Obviously, Little Man is too young to take part in anything like this just yet. But making sure he gets plenty of fresh air and exercise is already a priority for us, so I love to see initiatives like this in the country.
Have any of your children taken part in the Cúl Camps previously? How did they get on? Were they worthwhile? Or are there any other sports camps for kids taking place in Ireland this year that you can recommend to Mama.ie readers?
