From adventure activities to 'roller-jams', KDYS summer camps have it all going on!
From adventure activities in Killarney and Cappanalea to roller-jamming in Limerick, horse-riding, bowling and a whole lot more besides, the KDYS summer camp programmes for 2017 are promising nearly too much fun.
Thankfully, there's no such thing as too much fun. But as time flies when you're having it the only danger is the youngsters might find themselves back in school before they know it!
The KDYS launched its North Kerry Summer programmes on Monday much to the excitement of the youth. All of the programmes are co-ordinated by KDYS youth workers and trained volunteers which make them real community based events.
This year sees the introduction of a 'Stepping Stones' activity week running from Monday July 3 to 7 and exclusively for sixth-class pupils. They will spend the week doing activities including a trip to roller-jam in Limerick, horse riding, bowling, trip to the cinema, Play at Heights in Killarney and an adventure day at Cappanalea O.E.C.
"This is a great way for sixth-class pupils going into secondary school to get to know other people that they might be in school with," said Gareth Harteveld, Community Youth Worker.
Monday July 31 to Friday August 4, sees the return of the ever popular summer camp for 10-13 year olds, now in its 22nd year. The camp is loaded with fun and activities including sports, trip to the aquadome, arts and crafts, inflatables, trips to the cinema and Delta adventures in Limerick. Both weeks cost €100 each, and as spaces are limited people are urged to book now.
Places can be booked by paying a €30 deposit to KDYS Listowel, Upper Church St, Listowel or call the centre on (068) 23744 for more details.
