Summer Camps 2020

Maynooth Summer Camps 2020


Due to the lockdown measures introduced for Co. Kildare on Friday evening all the in person camps and events planned for the next two weeks have been cancelled.

I will be introducing more online events so stay tuned. And join the mailing list

When, where and who is it for? 

Both camps will be on in Maynooth Boys School in Maynooth

Camp 1 – Monday 10th to Wedesnday 12th August 
Camp 2 – Thursday 13th and Friday 14th August 

Camps will run from 10am to 1pm each day 

Students MUST have attended at least junior infants in school to be able to attend

Camps are suitable for children up to the age of 11 

A note on numbers.

Spaces in both camps will be limited, this is also one of the reasons that I am doing two camps in the one week so I can offer it to more people. If I have no siblings book in then the maximum children that I can have for a camp will be 9 with sibling pods I will be able to take up to 14 children. .

What are the costs? 

Camp 1, the 3 day camp will be €75 per child and there will be a sibling discount 
So first child €75, second child €65 and third child €6

Camp 2, the 2 day camp will be €55 per child with the same sibling discount. 
So first child €55, second child €45 and third child €40

IMPORTANT – This discount only applies to siblings, they must be living in the same household, as I can only offer this discount as they will be able to sit within a pod in the summer camp. 

You can only book in your own children. You cannot book for a friend or relative.

All the above MUST be included in order for a place to be reserved. I will then reply to let you know if you have been succesful in getting a place and I will include a payment link.

The big advantage of online camps is you can attend them from anywhere in the country or (depending on your timezone) the world! 

I am in touch with all the locations that I was organised to rent this summer. Most are waiting for guidance and regulations from their governing bodies. Those that have gotten back to me have said late July or August at the earliest. Some have indicated September.

There will hopefully be more information on June 29th 

This may however only be possible for some locations and perhaps ONLY in August. And they may also be shorter durations and a different format. 

Week 1 – 3 of the online camps are guaranteed to go ahead no matter how the circumstances change

If in person is not possible
If we cannot have on location camps then I will continue to offer ONLINE camps throughout the summer. As more informaton becomes available AS ALWAYS my mailing list will get the information first AND the first chance to book in too.

What about materials?

I will aim to use materials that you would have in your house as much as possible. 
Once you are booked in you will be emailed a list of the materials you will need for camp. I will give you the websites and shops that you can source these materials in, and I will also have an option where you can purchase the materials directly from me with a postal or pick up option depending on your location. As with all my camps I will be using plenty of recycled materials. 

The online summer camps will cost €45 per student and €5 for each additional sibling. 

How do I book?
Scroll up to the top of this page to see the current camps available for booking to the public. If we organise any in person camps my mailing list will get first opportunity to book in. So join the list below

What ages is it suitable for? 
The first online camp will be an all age camp suitable for children ages 5 to 11. Younger children in the camp may need some supervision with the projects. But in general each project will be designed so that all age groups will be able to complete them themselves, with older children creating more complex or detailed versions of the same project. 

If you have any questions just get in touch.
