2. Try a new Sport!: 

Local Clubs often have "Summer Camp Activities" going on throughout the holidays, this is the perfect opportunity to make new friends and try something new in the sunshine! These sports may involve football clubs, climbing, to a range of different sports throughout the day. These allow you to burn some energy, have fun and most importantly, try something new! Information can be found on these clubs through local leisure centre websites such as, Wirksworth Leisure Centre.

Volunteering is an amazing thing to be a part of, allowing you become a part of the local community as well as improving your sense of accomplishment!
