StreetGames Summer Camp
As part of G&T's ESG initiative we supported the 2022 StreetGames Summer Camp, offering young people from disadvantaged backgrounds the opportunity to develop key life skills, whilst experiencing the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games.
StreetGames uses sport to bring people together, breaking down social boundaries and inspiring people to make a difference in their lives. Through our support, we help facilitate events like the Summer Camp, empowering young people to kick-start a cycle of positive change that echoes throughout the communities we help build.
"I really enjoyed the Summer Camp. It was great meeting new people outside of my area and getting to see diﬀerent people from across the country"
This year's annual StreetGames Summer Camp took place at Blackwell Adventure Centre in conjunction with the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games. Advertised through StreetGames' network of around 1,000 locally trusted organisations (LOT), young people from disadvantaged communities across the UK came together to develop key professional and personal skills.
Over 400 young people and volunteers took part, encouraging a greater number of young people coming from ethnically diverse communities. Sessions focused on teaching key skills such as teamwork, understanding and self-discipline, through exciting activities such as caving, boxing, creative workshops, football and much more. Attendees also got to attend the Commonwealth Games and watch inspirational athletes compete live.
