The Corkman - - OPINION -

SET up in 2013, Just 4 Fun Kids Camp Ltd ( t/r Just 4 Leisure) teacher Kevin Collins recog­nised the need for chil­dren to have stim­u­lat­ing ac­tiv­i­ties which would be of ben­e­fit to both their men­tal and phys­i­cal well­be­ing dur­ing the hol­i­day breaks.

IRD Duhal­low was ap­proached and Just 4 Leisure se­cured a grant of €50,000 to pur­chase in­flat­a­bles and sports equip­ment to use for hire and use in the camps.

Their tar­get cus­tomers are par­ents who may be in em­ploy­ment and need a safe and rea­son­ably priced ser­vice for their chil­dren for a week in the hol­i­days. Af­ter many months and long hours of mar­ket­ing and phys­i­cal work, Just 4 Fun Kids Camps were in 11 lo­ca­tions for the sum­mer 2017 in the Mun­ster area.
