A four day soccer camp that mixes on and off field fun

Soccer with music and stories will be on the agenda at a cam with a twist.

There will be an annual soccer camp with a little extra twist happening in Golden between August 7 and 10.

Richard Campeau, one of the organizers and instructors at the camp, explained the camp is for children aged five to 10. This year the camp will run four days and give local athletes the chance to brush up on the skills on the pitch.

“It is a vocation bible camp that is teamed theme. The children will have two hours of soccer instruction and scrimmage. Then they will have one hour of snacks, bible stories and songs,” Campeau said.

The camp will be held at the Keith King Memorial Park and will be held from 9 a.m. to noon.

Campeau sees many great aspects to the camp for the children who attend.

“We want to be a blessing to the kids. It provides something for children to do. It is an opportunity for us to teach the children bible stories and songs while being an outreach to the community,” Campeau said.

He added he felt giving something back to the community is a great thing to do as well.

The camp is open to all children and there is a cost of $35 for the first child of a family to attend. If a second sibling of a family wants to attend, the cost does drop.

Campeau wanted to stress that the goal of the camp is not to turn any child away who wants to attend the camp.

“It is about the enjoyment of being outside with the kids and volunteers. It is a lot of fun. You get to learn soccer skills, learn bible stories, make new fiends and have a lot of fun,” Campeau said.
