HERE'S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT CAMP
What time can I drop my kids off?
Registration is at 10am where tea and coffee will be available for parents who wish to stay for the welcome address. Please let us know in advance if this is the case so we can advise the campus on numbers for catering. An adult must drop a child off on the first day.
If I cancel, can I get a refund?
A non-refundable deposit of €250 is paid at the time of booking. The balance is paid 4 weeks prior to camp and is also non-refundable once paid, however we can facilitate a name change.
What food is provided for the children?
A nutritious and tasty breakfast, hot lunch, dinner and an evening snack will be provided. Serving times are as follows:
Breakfast 8 am – 9 am
Lunch 1 pm – 2 pm
Dinner 5 pm – 6 pm (may be subject to change depending on the days activities)
There will be a small tuck shop on site with a range of products so campers can bring pocket money to spend here or they are welcome to bring their own tuck if they wish to. We ask that campers be mindful of others, therefore we have no nut policy.
What is your food allergy policy?
All parents are asked during the pre-camp chat if their child has any food intolerances / allergies that the team need to be made aware of. Any campers with food allergies are required to provide an Emergency Action Plan related to their specific medical needs.
Is spending money required?
Spending money is not required, however there will be a tuck shop onsite if campers wish to purchase snacks during their stay.
What type of clothes should my teen pack for the week?
Campers will be supplied with two t-shirts and a hoodie that can be worn throughout the week of camp. We would recommend that your teen brings comfy clothes, suitable for all weather type (bring some extras), suitable footwear for sports activities (including hiking and yoga), toiletries (including sun cream) and a towel. It is also recommended to bring swimwear, as there is an outdoor pool which can be used (depending on the weather conditions). This would be coordinated by camp coaches and leaders.

What activities will take place at the camp?
Every day at camp is a little different from the day before, team leaders will keep the day flowing with a host of planned activities carefully scheduled to ensure a balance of physical, mental and creative challenges.
Campers will also have allocated periods for chilling out and can choose quiet time on their own or to hang out with their new buddies. ‘Inspiration hour’ is when the teams will be brought together to listen to an invited guest or participate in some sort of workshop to stimulate idea generation and team building.
