Annually during the month of July

As we all know the summer holidays can be long, so it’s good to be able to break it up with activities that enhance the enjoyment of the season.

The annual Ballydehob Community Playgroup Summer Camps are hugely successful, and the fabulous setting of the sports field, indoor sports hall, outdoor play, tennis and basketball courts ensure that the children all have a ball. They may be a little exhausted at the end of each day, but they also go home with a smile. 🙂

We cater for children from four to ten years of age, and also provide a full week summer service from 8am to 6pm. The crèche is also open during July from 8am to 6pm for younger siblings of three months to five years old.

We employ specialised trainers for each activity week, and the children are very well supervised with the adult / child ratio being about 1:10. A typical summer camp includes the following activities:


10am to 2pm : €60A week long workshop for four to eight year olds. The workshop includes singing, songwriting, percussion, guitar, piano and recording. The camp ends with a performance for friends and family.


For children aged four to eight, this camp includes arts and crafts, multi-sports, games and more.


10am to 2pm €60Exploring art and nature. This camp opens your child’s mind to the art we can create with nature and recycled products. Suitable for children aged four to eight.


10am to 2pm : €60A week long puppet camp creating your own story using puppets you have made, and at the end of the week performing the show for friends and family.


10am to 2pm : €60A five day camp cooking something on each of the days. Snack, dinner and dessert!
Suitable for children aged four to eight.
