Summer Camps 2023

Important Notice for Parents

Dear Parents,

We would like to thank you most sincerely for choosing Connemara Maths Academy for your children this summer. We are very much looking forward to welcoming all our students, new and returning, to our camps. We would like to remind parents that this year’s summer camps are being held at Rockwell College in County Tipperary and at Headfort School in County Meath. The exact location is available on our Summer Camps page in the main menu above.

Balance Payments are due 4 weeks prior to camp starting.

Check List for Students

Arrival time is Sunday 7pm.

Departure time is Saturday 1pm.

The Presentation For Parents, Family and Friends takes place on Saturday in the lecture theatre at 12.30pm sharp. This is located in the main building beside the reception.

Items to bring include

  • Personally Labelled Refillable Water Bottle
  • Spare towel (in addition to the towel we provide)
  • Old pair of shoes/trainers for water based activities
  • Sports gear
  • Sunblock
  • Light anorak/waterproof jacket

  • Students who wish to bring a wetsuit for the water activities on the Lake may do so. Most students don’t wear wetsuits on the water during the summer, while some do.
  • We supply all equipment and gear for activities and workshops.

Pocket Money/Treats

There is no tuck shop or vending machines on campus. Any food brought to camp by students should be placed in clearly labelled plastic bags or packs. All food brought on site is collected on arrival and students can take what they need during break time during the day. No food or drinks (except water) is permitted in the dorms at any time.

CMA hoodies (€80), t-shirts (€25) and caps (€20 each) will be available to buy on campus.

Insurance

Citizens of the EU (not from Ireland) relying on the EU Health Insurance should bring their EHIC insurance card with them.  EU Citizens with private health insurance should send a copy to aengus@connemaramathsacademy.com

Non EU Citizens & Students from outside the EU must carry travel & health insurance with them and send a copy to aengus@connemaramathsacademy.com

We recommend all international students carry private health insurance.

Communications during Camp

There is fast WiFi at Rockwell and students will have the opportunity to go online to call or send messages to their parents and receive calls from parents during the allocated time just after breakfast and before workshops commence at 10am. Parents who wish to contact their children at other times can do so through the main office on 095 31925 or by email info@connemaramathsacademy.com.

In urgent cases, parents can use the Emergency Whats App Number 086 8772885 to get in touch with us.

 

DEVICES

All devices are collected on arrival and are given back to students every afternoon at 4pm for 30 minutes. This rule is very strictly adhered to and any students found to have brought an additional device with them which they have not declared or are found to have a device on them outside of the allocated times will be asked to leave the camp. We would also like to make very clear that any bullying of any kind will not be tolerated at any time and students who do not adhere to this zero tolerance rule will be asked to leave. Any student who shows any disrespect of any kind to staff members will be asked to leave.

 

Multiple Week Stays

Students staying two weeks or more will have activities and meals as usual at the weekend.

Airport Transfers

We offer a comprehensive Airport Transfer Service for our international students and further details can be found here Airport Transfers.
