Starcamp is almost here again!

Wednesday, 20th June, 2018 4:52pm

Summer is here so it's time to decide what activities your children will be taking part in. Summer fun, camp games, singing, dancing, acting and confidence building are the staple ingredients behind Starcamp.

Now you can add news reporting, interviewing, band practice, superhero masterclasses, starlympics, art and crafts, and this year, the camp is introducing a touch of magic for all those budding magicians.

“Children have never needed Starcamp in their lives more than they do now!” says owner Aideen O’Grady, who is also a regular panellist on TV3’s ‘The Elaine Show’ and was also a winner on ‘Dragons Den’.

“It is a proven fact that the performing arts, music and general creativity are essential for a child’s overall well-being. They emit the 'happy hormone' in bucket loads.

“Children should feel free to find and to be themselves without being judged; they should be using their imaginations, making noise, jumping and dancing around and laughing out loud. Children should celebrate being children and that is why we started Starcamp 12 years ago.”

Starcamp runs in almost 220 towns nationwide and staff at Starcamp HQ work 12 months of the year to create the best summer camp experience possible for all children aged 4-12 nationwide.

The camp runs for five days, with various Cork locations across the summer holidays, from 9.30am-2.30pm and children are sub divided into their own age groups for advancing programs.

Starcamp is also a favourite amongst Ireland’s celebs. Rachel Allen who sent her child, said: “My daughter took part in Starcamp and really, really enjoyed it, all the teachers were so kind and encouraging to the children and they put on such a great show at the end.”
