Summer camp is perfect for USA teens of Irish descent (or who like Ireland). You will do a little bit of everything - you do some stuff in the classroom on Irish studies with excellent local teachers, you travel around Ireland, including some time in Dublin City, you meet other students who are from Europe, doing other camps, you do inter-cultural activities , talent shows, surfing, hiking - there is a huge mix of activities so that everyone will have a very wide cultural experience. It is super-friendly too, lots of kids come on their own, and there is always a really happy atmosphere.

Typical Day

Typical day will begin after breakfast with some Irish studies work - this usually covers a little bit of Irish history, some Gaelic chat, some music, some discussion on differences between Ireland & USA and we usually integrate the classroom stuff with a relevant visit to a cultural site in the afternoon. Sportier students have the option to go surfing or climbing if they prefer, and in the evening, we will all get together (students from Ireland, UK, Spain, France, Germany) for an 'Olympic games' on the beach. Then, before bed time, watch a movie and make popcorn....

Other Information

Adventure Ireland is running since 1996, (the program was launched in Dublin by Ambassador Jean Kennedy-Smith) and we have had wonderful programs every summer since then. It is the only Irish summer camp for USA teens that is part of a full-time educational program, and it is the only Irish summer camp which offers an authentic experience of Ireland, in Ireland, with Irish teachers and counsellors. We have twice been awarded the Irish Tourist Board's 'Welcome Ireland' award, and we very much focus on the happiness and safety of every teen who comes to us.
