All Junior camps operate on an 'all inclusive' package:

The variety of extracurricular programmes guarantees that the learning process continues outside the classroom, in a relaxed and fun-loving environment. We offer many activities, outings, cultural tours, sports and social events after school. This allows the student to embrace a real flavour of Ireland and its people.

English summer camps in Ireland

In our ACELS accredited courses in Kilkenny, students stay with an Irish host family. All families have been carefully selected and are regularly inspected. By living with a host family, each student has the great opportunity of getting to know the “Irish way of life” during their stay in Ireland. 

Host family accommodation consists of full board (breakfast, packed lunch and dinner) and full board at the weekend.

 

In our two other summer centres in Waterford and Dublin (open during several weeks during the summer), students live in on-campus residential accommodation.

Residential accommodation consist of full board (breakfast, hot lunch and dinner).
