Deputy Mayor, Councillor Kellie Hinton visited the summer camp at the Eyot Centre yesterday to see first-hand what great activities the children were enjoying on the river. She even tried a kayak out for size although on dry land!
The summer camp is open to children aged 10-16 and has been running for four days (Monday to Thursday) from 10.00-4.00pm.
Deputy Mayor, Councillor Kellie Hinton said, “It’s really great to see a holiday club really focussed around the river and activities on the river. We are a riverside town and I think it’s really important that the children grow up learning about how to safely use the river, how to be part of the river community and how to look after it.”
Coach, Richard Masey said, “It’s an opportunity for the kids to try something new, to be outside and enjoy the stunning scenery of Henley. They are trying out canoeing, kayaking, bellboats, paddleboarding – the works! It’s a bit windy and rainy today so if the conditions turn for the worse we’ll of course get them off the water and we’ve got lots of fun things we can do inside.”
The Centre plan to run another holiday camp next Easter. To register your interest, you can contact firstname.lastname@example.org
