The safety and wellbeing of your children are our top priority: our team of energetic, dedicated, highly-qualified instructors in in our Clontarf sports centre, have a strong track record in sports education and coaching. Some have trained Paralympic competitors. They are certified with Sport Ireland Safeguarding Training and they co-ordinate supervised camps that combine fun with valuable sports education.

As a parent I want my children to have fun at summer camps and, if possible, to learn something. The great strength of the IWA camps is that they achieve both of these things. Children who attend the camps are challenged physically and socially but in an environment that prioritises their enjoyment. They come to understand that ability exists on a broad spectrum and have their perceptions of what it means to be competent and capable challenged across a wide range of activities. Above all, they are given a different lens through which to look at themselves and their friends, old and new. I can think of no better way for children to spend their time.

So to ensure your children spend their school holidays enjoying fun sporting activities in a safe, nurturing environment, book early to avoid disappointment. Check the availability section for all available camps.
