Irish Camp offers opportunities to discover and develop the performing arts in drama, music, song, hip-hop dance, storytelling and Irish language.

Irish Camp is a quality program which offers unlimited opportunities for new and varied experiences including learning new physical and social skills, companionship, confidence and individual growth and development.
The mission and goal of Irish Camp is to be a partner with parents in providing wholesome activities for children and offer a program that promotes growth and development of children’s personalities, along with positive moral paths.
Our attitude and approach to everything we do at camp focuses on creating a warm, welcoming environment in which kids can be themselves without fear of judgment and in which each child belongs. Our child-centered philosophy creates a supportive atmosphere where campers develop skills and values to last a lifetime.
Irish Camp respects the rights and dignity of all campers and staff, including individuals with varying abilities, cultures, genders, races and religions.
Singing will be at the heart of this year’s camp with tunes, vocal soundscapes and even some Irish language songs! Classes in Fiddle and Piano are provided along with beginner lessons in bodhrán and tin whistle. All levels welcome.
Performance & Movement
The hugely popular hip hop dance sessions are back as we encourage campers to give it a go – some routines will be danced to Irish songs! There will also be a little bit of traditional Irish dancing and some fun creative movement.
Acting, improvisation, comedy sketches, physical storytelling, musical theatre and nonstop drama games will keep the campers excited and involved. Learning, experimenting and sharing experiences will inspire confidence and a love of the Irish arts.
The last day of camp finishes with a full-on theatrical performance, bringing together all the skills, ideas and talents from the entire three weeks!
