NSC To Hold Summer Sports Camps

This Summer North Shropshire College (NSC) will be holding Disability Multi-Sports Camps at the Walford Campus.

There will be activities such as: football, orienteering, fencing, dodgeball, wheelchair sports, angling, futsal and many more to look forward to over the camps. There will be four days of events: Monday 8th, Tuesday 9th, Wednesday 10th and Thursday 11th August and all sessions will run from 9.30am-4.00pm.

Benji Evans, event organiser, commented “We piloted some different sessions last year and the multi-sports disability camps were a resounding success.
