You are here: Ann Carton - Summer Camp


We have put together a fun summer camp programme of multi - activities for all ages. Last year was our first year to run such summer camps which proved very successful.

Parents in the past have found it difficult to find summer camps which offer full days activities with meals and transport included. We have designed a package that includes all meals and transport as well as a wide variety of activities that suits all age groups and preferences.

We offer two summer camps running simultaneously from Monday 28th June to Friday 13th of August. One camp for the 5-12 year old age group and one camp for 2-4 year olds. You have a choice of three programs: Option 1 is full day from 9.30am until 6pm for €155.00. Option 2 is 5 mornings from 9.30am to 1.30pm and Option 3 is 5 afternoons from 1.30pm to 6pm, both for €85.00. Prices include all picnics, lunches, outings and activities. Lunches are freshly prepared each day by our qualified cook.

For the 5 to 12 yrs olds we are delighted that again this year Xaavier Medas resident PGA professional at Castle Dargan Golf Club, Ballygawley has agreed to instruct the children in the basics of golf. The children will also attend a pottery workshop in Benbulben Pottery, Rathcormac with potter David McLoughlin with whom we deal with on a regular basis. Art & Crafts will be under the guidance of artists Amy McGovern and Dympna O' Driscoll. Your child /children will come home with the most amazing pieces of Art & Craft work. We hope to make trips to Sligo Fire station and Finner Camp. Other activities include photography, baking, cultural days and visits to Hazelwood, Rosses Point, Streedagh and Lissadell to name but a few.

We have created a separate programme of summer camp activities for children 2 to 4 years old. Amy McGovern and Dympna O'Driscoll with assist the children with art and crafts. While the creche staff will be organising activities each day such as, treasure hunts, teddy bears picnic, puppet shows, trips away etc.

On Friday of each week the children will have a photo diary of the weeks activities.
