The camps are two weeks, Monday to Friday, 10am to 3pm.

There is a maximum of one full-day outing per camp.

The camps are fully funded however students must pay a minimum €100 deposit on booking which will be refunded in full at the end of the camp, providing they have attended every day and have arrived on time and stayed until the end.

Camp coordinators are responsible for every aspect of the camp. Languages Connect may visit the summer camp. A time and date will be agreed in advance with the coordinator.

Languages Connect require photos from the camp for future promotional purposes, and they may send a video crew to film the camp and/or a photographer to take photos. If any filming is to take place, the time and date will be agreed in advance with the coordinator.
