The camp is mixed boys and girls this year. We have space for 26 teenagers, 13 in the Boys accommodation and 13 in the Girls accommodation.

Age Criteria: 13 to 18 y.o.a, however, because there is a lot of interest in this camp this year, we are giving the FIRST ROUND OF APPLICATION to those who are age 15 to 18 y.o.a. 

If places have not been filled – by Sunday June 7th – by those who are between 15 to 18 y.o.a. then those aged 13 and 14 may then be allocated places. Those ages 13 and 14 may apply immediately but their place will not be confirmed until after June 7th.

13 to 14 years of age: those born between 8.8.2007 and 8.8.2008
15 to 18 years of age: those born between 8.8.2002 and 7.8.2007

Also, for the sake of fairness, we ask those who will be attending OTHER FAITH CAMPS on the week prior to (or the week following) the week of Camp Creideamh, to choose one camp or the other. This will then free up a place for those children who may not get to go to any camp.

NB: Covid precautions. On arrival at the venue, attendees and volunteers will be given a double Covid test (i) Antigen Nasal Test (ii) Temperature check. If the individual fails in either of these tests (the results will be determined after 15 minutes) he/she will not be admitted to the camp and will return home. Tests will also be run on departure from the camp (at the end) to ascertain whether there is a covid health problem. If you have any other concerns about Covid protocols please ring 0869972539 before booking your child into the camp. During this phone call you will have a chance to discuss our covid protocols and your satisfaction with same. Please do not book your child into the camp without checking our protocols and making sure that you are happy with them.
