We never stop learning. The philosophy underlying the Columbus Club ethos is that children thrive on learning by “doing”, by creating and by trying new opportunities and activities. We foster the sense of wonder and fun which together are key ingredients to life-long learning.
Columbus Club provides a wide range of hands-on activities. Students are encouraged to explore all opportunities and activities. The left hand side of the brain is logic based and the right hand side of the brain fosters creativity and critical thinking. Our activities develop both sides of the brain by boosting up every child’s imagination.
Every child is on their own journey of development when exploring and learning new things. To discover new concepts by “doing” is a wonderful way for children to learn and apply their knowledge to a variety of scenarios.
Columbus Club provides a choice of ten different and varied Easter & Summer Camps every year for students aged (3-12).
Teenage Courses & Workshops
Columbus Teenage Section is devoted to second-level students and meeting their current needs. Our language Classes with emphasis on Oral and Aural are provided by tutors who are also native speakers who come from the Galway Gaeltacht and from Gaelscoileanna. We provide Summer Courses in Irish during June, July and August every Summer in U.C.D.
Columbus Club provides Teenage Workshops in Photography during the summer months. We also provide a Summer course for teenagers in Baking and Cookery. Students take home everything they bake and cook each day. On completion of the course students are given the Recipe Manual.
Finally, we provide a wide range of courses in computer related disciplines such as Web Design, Gaming Courses and Computer Programming & Coding. Columbus Club is providing “Create an App” Course (one week) this Summer 2018 from Monday 25th June to Friday 29th June for teenagers.
Columbus Academy provides an Academic Programme on a daily basis during the Easter & Summer holidays. Columbus Club provides children and teenagers with as many opportunities as possible in the academic and creative worlds to develop existing skills and to explore numerous other possibilities including new learning opportunities especially within the world of technology, culinary and sport.
Most children will benefit from a term of maths tuition. S/he may benefit from one to one private tuition in a subject s/he may find difficult or by attending a creative writing class where the student learns to structure his/her ideas and write well written stories. Columbus Club provides young people with the opportunities to do this during the Easter and Summer holidays.
Our Creative emphasis is apparent in the wide range of activities and themes provided in our twelve different camps which take place weekly for the duration of the Easter and Summer holidays.
Columbus Club caters for all ability levels and all personality types working with each learner in achieving his/her full potential.
In conclusion, Columbus Club is constantly evolving to meet the needs of primary and second-level students. We are constantly seeking your feedback and your views, ideas and opinions and greatly appreciate when you take the time to do so.
