Clare Youth Service summer camps 2018


Clare Youth Service will run Summer Camps in Ennis and Shannon in July, offering active and creative fun to young people aged 7 to 12 years.

The summer camps aim to offer each child a range of experiences, an opportunity to meet new friends, take part in a wide range of activities including: art, fun games, dancing, sports, day trips and a lot more. The varied programme ensures there is something for each child and at a very reasonable price.  The camps promise a variety of activities each day with action, excitement, new experiences and a chance to make some new friends in a safe environment.

Ennis Summer Camp

Monday 9th to Friday 13th July from 1-5pm each day for 7-12 years olds in The Junction Youth and Community Building, Cloughleigh Road, Ennis.

Shannon Summer Camp

Monday 16th to Friday 20th July from 1-5pm each day for 7-12 years olds in Rineanna Hall, Rineanna View, Shannon

Application forms are available in both centres as well as at the reception in the Carmody Street building on Kilrush Road, Ennis. People should register early to avoid disappointment. Camps will cost €30 per child, with a family discount available.

The camps in both towns are run by a group of trained volunteers aged 15-18 years. The Youth Service attributes the continued success of the programmes to the dedicated contribution of these volunteers.
