All Junior camps are 'all inclusive' packages:

 

  • English tuition in small classes (max. 15 students)
  • host family accommodation (incl. full board)
  • return airport transfers (from/to Dublin airport, DUB)
  • activity programme (cultural, social, sportive)
  • weekly full day-trips & excursions
  • and more...

The variety of extracurricular programmes guarantees that the learning process continues outside the classroom, in a relaxed and fun-loving environment. We offer many activities, outings, cultural tours, sports and social events after school. This allows the student to embrace a real flavour of Ireland and its people.

In our ACELS accredited courses in Kilkenny, students stay with an Irish host family. All families have been carefully selected and are regularly inspected. By living with a host family, each student has the great opportunity of getting to know the “Irish way of life” during their stay in Ireland. 

Host family accommodation consists of full board (breakfast, packed lunch and dinner) and full board at the weekend.
