Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camps provide boys and girls – between the ages of 6 and 13 – with an action-packed and fun-filled week of activity during the summer holidays which revolves around maximising enjoyment and sustaining participant involvement in Gaelic Games.
Here in Cork we have many clubs that run a Cúl Camp during the summer holidays and one thing is evident from the large numbers of young children attending, they are popular healthy and great fun for all involved. Each year the numbers of children attending these camps is growing and each year the children come away with new gear, tops, bags etc which can be seen at underage games, school activities, days out all year round.
Activities are GAME BASED, a strong emphasis is placed on skill acquisition, and are organised in an age appropriate manner with a view to:
- optimising learning
- enhancing friendships
- improving physical & psychological well being
- promoting school and club links

KEY FEATURES ABOUT KELLOGG’S GAA CÚL CAMPS
The camps are structured so that a different aspect of the game is worked on each day.
The programme involves coaching specific skills of the game and the opportunity for children to put into practice what they have learned through small sided games.
On the last day of the camp a “blitz” will be organised to provide each child with an introduction to competitive games.
