Action Packed Week

Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camps provide boys and girls – between the ages of 6 and 13 – with an action-packed and fun-filled week of activity during the summer holidays.

The event revolves around maximising enjoyment and sustaining participant involvement in Gaelic Games

Activities are also organised in an age-appropriate manner with a view to: optimise learning; enhance friendships; Improve physical and psychological well-being and to promote school and club links

Different Aspect Each Day

The camps are structured so that a different aspect of the game is worked on each day.

The programme involves coaching specific skills of the game to provide the opportunity for children to put into practice what they have learned through small sided games.

During the camp week, a ‘blitz’ is organised to provide each child with an introduction to competitive games.
