To encourage and support participants aged 10-17 with a disability back into sport, Scottish Disability Sport (SDS) are excited to be able to offer young people with a disability, hearing impairment or visual impairment an opportunity to take part in our Summer 2021 activity days.

These have been set up to replace the 2021 residential summer camp cancelled due to COVID.

Camps will run throughout Scotland over a two-day period. You can apply to attend these sessions for one or both days and choose the location that suits you. There will be no cost to participate in these camps. 

In Tayside, the activity days will take place at Willowgate Outdoor Activity on the 11th August and Bells Sport Centre / North Inch, Perth on the 12th August.
