Widnes Vikings held a fantastic Game Changer camp during the Easter Holidays, concluding in the attendees having lunch with the Vikings first team stars.  

Over 50 children took part in the camp, a two-day event that saw them train on the I-Pitch, and develop their rugby league skills with the Vikings’ award winning community staff through a number of games and skill based exercises.

On Wednesday, the attendees were then taken to Parklands Sports Club where they sat alongside the likes Chris Houston, Rhys Hanbury and Joe Mellor and ate like a pro, whilst getting signatures from all of their favourite stars after the meal. 

Liam Clark, Head of Education at the Vikings, says: “It was another brilliant camp for everyone that attended the camp. They had great fun, taking part in all of our activities and getting behind the scenes in the stadium." 

"The lunch with the first team squad was a perfect way to the close the Camp. The children were so excited to meet their favourite players, and it will be a moment that they will never forget.”

"I'd like to thank Nina and everyone at Parklands for hosting us on the Wednesday, and we are already looking forward to hosting more camps like this in the coming months."

The Game Changer Camp builds on a programme that we are delivering in 36 primary schools across Halton to promote healthy lifestyles amongst local people. Game Changer is delivered in partnership with Improving Me - Cheshire and Merseyside Women and Children Services Vanguard.
