The Irish Summer Camp is an opportunity to experience Gaeilge and the spoken word by engaging in a range of fun activities. The focus is on speaking Gaeilge for the week. Every encouragement is given to students to do this. One of the most popular activities that students enjoy is learning to bake “as Gaeilge”.

During the course of the week, this camp covers a wide range of activities “as Gaeilge”.
