Junior Football Training Camps


The Ultimate Footballing Experience

That’s how our 1-week residential summer camps have often been described. At Manchester United Soccer Schools we’ve spent the last 15 years developing young players on our action packed Soccer Schools training camps. These camps give children the opportunity to experience what life is like as a young professional footballer!

Junior 8 - 11 YRS

Great football, great fun, new friends!

Boys thrive in the ‘global village’ environment where more than 60 countries were represented in 2013! The Juniors Camp objective is: plenty of football – and enough down time to allow young bodies to recover.

Juniors live and play together in a safe and secure environment where they are looked after by expert coaches and a full time pastoral care team.

NEW FOR 2014 – an optional extra night at Denstone AND a special MUSS bus between Denstone and Central London. Your son can join the camp early and our staff will escort him to Denstone and then back to London. Call our office on +44 (0) 161 222 1036 for more details.

WEEKEND STAY - Weekend stays are designed as a connection between two one week camps. Boys can stay at Denstone over the weekend and will go on a day trip to Alton Towers on Saturday. Find out more.

For players attending camps at Denstone College, our airport transfer service operates from Manchester airport. The journey time from Manchester airport to Denstone College is around 90 minutes.

Please note, the residential football only camps finish on the Friday of each week, at Old Trafford. Therefore the departure transfer service is from Old Trafford to Manchester airport.



A single (one-way) trip between Manchester airport and Denstone College (ARRIVAL ONLY) = £95.

A single (one-way) trip between Old Trafford and Manchester airport (DEPARTURE ONLY) = £35.


How the airport transfer service works

On the arrivals day we will have a dedicated team of staff located at Manchester airport ready to meet your son/daughter as they come through to the arrivals hall.

At the airport your child will come through to the arrivals hall where they will see our staff holding a Manchester United Soccer Schools sign. If your child makes their way to this sign our staff will meet them and escort them all the way from the airport to the venue. Depending on your child’s flight time, there may be a short wait in the airport as we wait for other players to arrive. However, once your child has met with our staff, they are supervised at all times.

On the departure day our staff will take your child to the check in desk and then to the security gate. We can also make arrangements to transfer your child to the airline’s unaccompanied minor service if you check the unaccompanied minor box in your booking.
