The summer holidays are on their way - what are you going to do with your time?

A full week of active, healthy fun will be on offer this summer for young people who sign up to Challenge 23.

Challenge 23 is an action packed week of sporting activity for children aged six to 14, based at Stalham Sports Centre.

For the 23rd year this summer North Norfolk District Council’s expert coaches will create a whole week of fun games, sports and activities, in the form of the ever popular Challenge Week.

Challenge 23 kicks off on Monday, August 7th and runs every day until Friday, August 10th. It costs £90 per head.

The week combines a safe and welcoming environment, the chance to make friends, excellent coaching and lots of opportunities for adventure. Days run from 9am to 3pm, except for Friday which is 8am to 5pm.

Friday will include a trip to the Horstead Centre and include canoeing, crate stack, tower experience and team challenges. This will be followed by an end of week presentation back at the sports centre and a party for everyone to enjoy.

Cllr Maggie Prior, Cabinet Member for Leisure Health and Wellbeing, said: “Challenge Week is a fabulous, excellent value opportunity to take exercise all week, trying out different sports, games and activities, while having a thoroughly enjoyable and fulfilling experience.

“It’s delivered by our highly talented staff who know how to combine learning new skills with lots of fun.”

There is a Challenge 23 open day in advance of the full event where you can come and meet the team, learn all about Challenge, ask questions, sign up and try out lots of activities for free. This will be held on July 16 from 10am to 2pm, at Stalham Sports Centre.
