Get ready for 'The Games' with Keycamp Brand new fun Olympics activities
March 12, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel NewsThe London 2012 Olympic Games tickets may go on sale on 15 March, but families don't need to wait until next year to get into the athletic spirit, with Keycamp's brand new free 'Fun Olympics' activities available at 35 top European destinations this summer.
This is the Olympic Games with an injection of fun and family time from Keycamp. Fun Olympics opens with a morning training session where children – aged 4 to 12 – get to call the shots, choosing from a host of competitions from the traditional javelin and discus to madcap hoola-hoop spinning and obstacle courses.
The events are held later that day, where little athletes can even pit themselves against mum and dad, battling it out to prove who rules the family roost. At the closing ceremony, contesters, big and small, will all receive a certificate and the winner of each event will even score a Keycamp Olympic medal.
Fun Olympics will run every fortnight as part of Keycamp's free Fun Station for All childrens' club activities at selected parcs in France, Spain and Italy.
