Summer cricket camps for kids

There’s a whole load of fun and well-organised cricket camps for boys and girls aged 5 to 15 across the West Midlands taking place this summer, including a spell at Berkswell Cricket Club in Balsall Common.


The camps attract plaudits from attendees, grateful parents, clubs and schools, so they’re well worth investigating for anyone who hasn’t yet tried them.


Check out the information sheet and booking form below for more details about the camps. If you can’t commit to the most local camp at Berkswell Cricket Club there’s plenty more to choose from dates and venue-wise throughout the summer holidays.


These camps are have been carefully designed to create the perfect blend of skills-building, matchplay and fun.
