MEActive Summer 2021

Our MEActive team are providing a number of fun activity camps throughout the Borough. 

Due to Covid-19 restrictions we have changed the way we are delivering this summer. 

The vast majority of our programmes will be outside with shorter time slots but the important thing is to know they will still be fun and packed with lots of activities for our young people to get involved in – all of which are led by highly qualified and professional teams of instructors. 

All the Summer Programmes are FREE but booking is essential – please refer to each programme for further information. 

Inclusive Bikes

Our inclusive bikes are available to book every Wednesday evening between 4-6pm during the months of June, July (ex 14 July) and August in Shaftsbury Park, Carrickfergus.
