Over 60 young girls registered for the three-day camp that took place last Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 10am-2pm. There were groups of under 8s, under 10s, under 12 and 14s, and they all learned the skills of camogie, took part in the skills challenges and played camogie games. When the camp concluded all the girls were presented with a Westmeath camogie hoody, certs and camogie boot bags. It is hoped that another camp will be held again over the summer.
