Get active with Council’s Youth Empowerment Project
Young residents are encouraged to lace up their running shoes and get active, with two exciting sporting opportunities offered as part of Camden Council’s Youth Empowerment Project.
StreetgYm every Tuesday, 3.30-5.30pm, at Birriwa Outdoor Youth Space, Mount Annan. Kids aged 12 to 18 years get the opportunity to get active and speak with YMCA NSW youth workers, volunteers and local community leaders in a safe space.
Late-night basketball on the last Friday of each month, 9pm-midnight, at Mount Annan Leisure Centre. This healthy competition is designed to help young people aged 16 to 25 years meet peers and develop their sports skills. It includes full-court basketball games, three on three matches, three-point shootouts and dunk contests.
Council runs, and supports, many other physical activities for young residents, including:
Skateboarding clinics held once a month, on a Saturday, at Kirkham Skate Park, Hilder Street, Elderslie,10am-noon;
Female Wellness Programs and Youth Boot Camp at Mount Annan Leisure Centre; and
School holiday and Youth Week programs which include various sporting activities at Mount Annan Leisure Centre.
