Leisure charity Live Argyll are offering a summer of fun as its facilities and services continue to re-open.

Holiday activity camps for primary school aged children are being offered and from July 26 – 30 children can attend a multi activity camp at Oban High School, which
will include a mixture of indoor and outdoor activities including sports, games and crafts.

The same exciting opportunity will be offered on Mull at the Dervaig Village Hall between July 27-29 and on Tiree, based at the high school on August 10-12.

For keen footballers there is also a dedicated football camp running at Oban High School from July 12-15 and August 9-13. This camp will aid the development of physical, literacy and basic skills through football and will be delivered through
game-based activities focusing on agility, balance, speed and coordination. Sessions will also include movement skills and technical and tactical components all in a safe and fun environment.
