You can look up summer soccer camps in our Sport Camps category, we have listings for art & crafts camps, cookery camps for kids, drama & dance camps, or if your child is into languages or music, we have a separate category for language & music camps.

One of the most popular types of summer camps are the Multi-Activity camps where your child will have fun doing a range of different activities during the morning or day.

For the junior scientist in your household, check out the Science & Technology camps.

And if sport is what they are into, we have a range of camps in our Sport and Water Sports & Swimming and horse riding camps.

There’s even a category for Health & Exercise or how about checking out our “other fun camps” category!

Tips for Summer Camps

Mykidstime is run by parents round the country and we have also compiled our Top 10 Tips for Summer Camps, based on our experience! Things like checking whether they need a drink or snack with them or what the procedure is at pick up time. Each camp provider should have a child protection policy in place. Ask other parents for opinions on camps if it’s your child’s first summer camp year.

If you know of a local camp that we don’t have listed, drop us an email or comment below and we’ll happily add to the listings for other parents! If you are a camp provider and we haven’t listed your summer camp, be sure to list your camp with us

    • I am looking for a summer camp for my kid regarding next year (I know that everything is full this year but I would appreciate to have your impressions for next year when he will be 9 y.o.)
    • He has been learning English from he was 5 y.o. and now I am interested in getting him in touch with irish kids (no foreign kids learning English in Ireland) in order to improve his social skills in english with native kids.
    • With this purpose I would like he attends to a residential camp in Ireland fully accommodated in a regular period of vacation with other irish kids (something about 10 days)

    Any information or advice regarding available choices is very much appreciated.
