Galleon Camps

Cricket Camp

Open to children in Primary 4 to S2, whether they attend George Watson's or not, this camp in the Easter holidays provides an opportunity for children to develop their cricketing skills in a fun and enjoyable environment, enabling them to enhance their skill levels prior to the new cricket season.

Galleon Summer Camp

The Galleon is very pleased to announce a structure for Summer Camps, during four weeks of the Summer holidays, running from 8.15am–4.00pm, and open to children from current P3 to S2, whether they attend George Watson's or not. Our aim is to develop a range of skills within different sports. All of the activities will have qualified coaches and will follow a set programme, fitness-skills and games. A list of activities is available on the application form which will be available from the end of May.

Hockey

The Galleon runs Hockey Camps in the Summer holidays. All courses are open to children whether they attend George Watson's or not and will provide a great opportunity for them to brush up on skills and fitness for the start of the new season. The emphasis is on developing hockey skills and techniques in a fun environment. They are based at the Senior School, using both astroturf pitches and the front grass pitch.

Rugby

During the summer holidays the Galleon runs pre-season ‘Rugby Skills Courses’, for those children in the current Primary 3 to S5, whether they attend George Watson's or not. This is an opportunity to brush up on skills and fitness for the start of the new season. Based at the Craiglockhart pitches, the emphasis is on developing rugby skills and techniques in a fun environment. Activities include skill drills and practices, modified games according to age, level and ability and fun games culminating in the unique ‘Rugby Olympics’ on the final day.

Tennis

The Galleon is very pleased to announce an Easter holiday tennis camp, open to children P3 to S1, whether they attend George Watson's College or not. This camp provides an opportunity for children to develop their tennis technical and tactical skills in a fun and enjoyable environment, enabling them to gain match play experience and enhance their skills prior to the tennis season.
