WheelPower's Primary Sports Camps are a great way for children aged 5-11 with a disability to discover sport in a safe, welcoming and friendly environment - all activity is adapted to suit abilities. 

The Primary Sports Camp is open to children with physical or mild sensory impairments between the ages of five and eleven years old and are a great way to make new friends, imporve helath and have fun. 

Entry forms from those children who would not traditionally fit within ‘disability sport classification’ such as those with dyspraxia, epilepsy or some form of internal organ dysfunction or absence are also accepted.


The aim of this broader definition is to make some form of provision for those children who are unable to ‘fit in’ to mainstream PE/sport provision but who also do not qualify for disability provision.


If any of the children's siblings or friends (of camp age) want to attend as well to enable them to take part in the activities together then they are more than welcome. The activities on offer can cater for disabled and non-disabled people.


Parents, guardians and personal assistants may be asked to assist and support their child at some activities to ensure that they get the best experience possible. They will be required to stay on site throughout the event (there is seating available near the activities as well as in the cafeteria.)

Between 25 and 50 children are expexted to attend the Camp.


Sports and activities:


The sports and activities at the Camp include; basketball, boccia, bowls, fencing , table games, tennis and zone hockey.


These activities are all about having fun and learning new skills - this may include a small element of competition but this is optional.


Everyone will be welcomed to take part and the sports and activities will be suitable for the children at a level at which they will feel comfortable.


Each sport will last for approximately 40 minutes but children can go at their own pace and have rests when needed.


All of WheelPower's Primary Sports Camps sports coaches are qualified, have DBS checks and have lots of experience of delivering activity to disabled children.


All children attending can discuss their needs and support with the event manager and sport coaches in a safe and private environment before starting an activity.

  • The entry fee is £9.00 per participant and £5.00 per parent and a lunch will be provided.
