Country

Located just 30 minutes from central Dublin (in the greater area) this is a excellent program based at Maynooth University, gives teenagers the opportunity to discover the beautiful (and safe) university town of Maynooth as well as Dublin and the region as they learn English. The students can make the most of the excellent facilities at the university making the most of time both on and off campus.
Everything is included! Note that the timetable is on "zig-zag", courses in the mornings one week and in the afternoons the next.

NB. Parent Updates available - daily updates, photos and video are provided securely on-line for parents to keep up with what's going on. :)))

English Courses

Provided by our world-renown partner language school, these quality English courses focus on the needs and motivation of young learners. A balanced mix of nationalities leads to an excellent classroom atmosphere. Students receive 15 lessons per week in a structured classroom environment and top this off with the activities and excursions all in English. You can book 5 hours extra lessons per week in the place of 2 activities (you do that on site the first day).

Accommodation

The students are housed on campus in single rooms with en-suite bathrooms in shared apartments.
All meals are taken on campus in the university restaurant.

Excursions

Each week there's a full-day excursion to an interesting spot in the area, the full-day allowing the camp the time to a little further afield. Two half-day activity/excursions to Dublin are also in the program. All excursions are well-organised and supervised by leaders from the school.

Activities

The afternoons and evenings offer a large range of activities. Students can play golf, basketball, enjoy some creative arts, discover Irish dancing, basketball, indoor hockey, go bowling .. the list goes on. 
In the evenings there's lots of supervised entertainments and activities to keep everybody happy and occupied.
