Ógras Summer Camps were Online this year!
Usually, Ógras run Irish-language day camps all over the country in July every year, but of course this year we had to get creative to make sure that our services are still available for you, and we are delighted to say that we were able to adapt our, usual extremely popular Summer Camp schedule to suit an online format!
Ógras's Online Summer Camps 2020 are over, but keep an eye on our social media (links above) or sign up to our Newsletter here!
Camps this year are at a reduced rate of €10 per young person, and every camp runs for 1.5 hours daily, from Monday to Friday for their alotted week, 10am to 11.30am (excluding week 4 - see note below). The age group for camps this year is 8-14 years.
We will be aiming for 8-10 young people in each camp session with a maximum of 12. This limit is to facilitate the opportunity for the young people to learn and have fun, and of course to ensure things are manageable for the camp teachers, facilitators and leaders with a focus on quality over quantity.
Ógras Summer Camps will be back in July 2021 - Keep an eye on the page to register!!
