Children across Helensburgh and Lomond have taken part in a range of activities designed to promote an active and healthy lifestyle at the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity's summer camp.

Kings Camp was held at Lomond School Sports Hall from July 11-22, with around 100 youngsters attending each week.

The event was open to children of Naval Base workers and members of the Helensburgh and Lomond community aged five to 17.

Captain Nick Gibbons, who also sponsored the camp, said: “This is a fantastic initiative for Clyde community families, and as ever, I am extremely grateful to the RNRMC and Kings Camp volunteers who devote so much energy and enthusiasm into the project.”

Kings Camp hold summer and school holiday camps across the UK and has run this event for Naval Base children for many years.

The multi-active programme aims to combine fun and learning, with a typical day featuring sports, activity sessions, team challenges, and time to socialise.

Debi McPhee, Kings Foundation Camp supervisor, added: “The Kings Camp Programme in Helensburgh has offered children the opportunity to have fun, meet new friends, enjoy sport, and explore new activities.

“The enthusiasm and energy from the children and their families has been incredible. We’re looking forward to working with Naval Service families in Helensburgh for year to come. 

“A huge thank you to all who support the programme and of course to the phenomenal Kings Camp team who have made this camp the best one yet.”
