Kelloggs Cúl Camps – 1st week of Camps soar in the good weather! #Cúl4Life

Last Monday saw the Kellogg’s Cul Camp’s kick into action with four camps taking place in Toome, Carrick Emmetts, Clones and Clontibret. The attendances at these camps has grown over the last few years, and this year was no exception. In Carrickmacross 217  boys and girls took part, there was 147 children in Clones, a massive 220  children attended the Clontibret camp while in Toome, they had their largest camp so far with 68 attending there. Credit must go to the clubs for the fantastic effort they put in promoting the camps in the weeks leading up to this past week.


The children got to experience the full enjoyment of a Kellogg’s Cul Camp with a full range of fun games and activities throughout the week. Each of the participants who attended the camps got an opportunity to play football, hurling, camogie, rounders and in some camps, handball.


All of the camps had a visit from county goalkeeper Rory Beggan. Rory attended all four camps over the week, where he completed a number of different challenges against the children. This seemed to go down well with the children and it’s something to look out for at the remainder of the camps.


Monaghan Coaching & Games would like to thank the host clubs for providing their excellent facilities throughout the week, and for facilitating the storage of equipment for the week also. Furthermore they would like to thank camp co-ordinators, coaches, parents and children for their help in ensuring the camps were a success.


Four camps take place this week coming, starting bright and early this morning (Monday) in Castleblayney, Inniskeen , Emyvale and Monaghan Harps.  The kit and backpack for the ‘walk-ins’ will not be available until the end of August. This is due to such a large increase in the number of children attending the camps nationally.


The cost of the camp is €60 for the first child, €50 for the second child and €40 for every child after that. Each child received a free backpack, half zip training top and a Cul Camps jersey.


If you would like any further information about the camp please do not hesitate to contact county coordinator Paul O’Connor (086 837 4827)and he will be glad to help.
