Greenhills Summer Sports Camp has a reputation to be proud of. This has been built up over the last 3 decades by Aidan Greene and his wonderful team. Although no longer at the helm, Aidan has been available along with Tim O’Connell to assist the incoming team continue the long traditions that have brought such wonderful experiences for all participants in the camp including Eoghan and Colm who attended the camp as kids themselves. Rest assured despite the hard work ahead, this years camp promises to continue the high standards set over the previous years.
The safety and happiness of each child is of the utmost importance. The sad goodbyes to new friends and to staff each Friday evening is a testament to the happy experience of each child. In the event of any problems arising, camp directors, are always available on (083) 1665911. In this way, any little worries are quickly resolved.
If you are new to Summer Camps, ask around and get the opinions of those children who have attended previously, or you are welcome to call (083) 1665911 with any queries.
The camp takes place at Our Lady’s College Greenhills, Drogheda during July. Each course lasts for ONE WEEK, Monday to Friday 10 am – 3 pm and THREE one week courses are available to choose from.
WHO GOES TO GREENHILLS?
Boys and girls from Drogheda and the surrounding areas attend the Sports Camp. Children who have come on previous years bring back the younger members of their family or friends and neighbours. It is usual now for a friend or cousin from another part of the country to come to Summer Camp in Drogheda for a week’s holiday – what a nice way to entertain a friend or relative without having them under your feet! NOW is the time to organise. We also cater for foreign students who come to improve their english language skills.
WHAT ABOUT YOUNGER CHILDREN ?
We realise that younger children take longer to settle down and parents are often worried that they will not manage.
However we give a lot of initial time towards developing and fostering positive social interaction between children and also between children and their teachers. ‘Teething’ problems are soon ironed out in this way.
WHAT ABOUT THE SHY CHILDREN?
If your children are coming with friends of their own age we keep them in the same group. If they are coming on their own there is no need to feel afraid. We try to provide a friendly atmosphere and children make friends very quickly. Many children on previous courses have made new friendships and come to Greenhills on future courses together.
WHAT TO BRING TO CAMP
Runners and Sportswear. Towel and a change of clothing for water games. A packed lunch, lots of drinks. Suncream and a hat for hot sunny days. Your child will be told on the previous day what, if any change is needed for the following day.
Greenhills Summer Sports Camp is well recognised as the leading summer camp in the area. Each year, parents and children write to us to express their satisfaction with the camp. The children are introduced to a wide range of sports, music, art, entertainment and much more under well organised and enjoyable conditions.
