MORE than 70 children were part of the Fiji Sports Council organised school holiday sports camp.

Children aged between 2 and 15 years old engaged in five different sports over the week.

Council operations manager Eroni Tawayaga said the camp was a bit different compared with the past years.

"It was different in terms of the program and the way the camp was run," he said.

"We had 42 kids on Monday when we taught them basketball, then we had 48 on Tuesday when we taught baseball, then the number jumped to 60 on Wednesday when we taught rugby and then we had 65 on Thursday when we taught volleyball and today (yesterday), we taught cricket to 72 kids."

Tawayaga thanked the Fiji National Sports Commission and Think Pacific for supporting the sports camp.

"Think Pacific designed the program and also provided some volunteers from Leeds University in the United Kingdom to teach the sports to the kids.

"The volunteers are based in Fiji and Think Pacific will be our partner in the long-term process and help us in the future sports camps."
