Teen Camp

These summer camps are specially designed programmes where teenagers with a serious illness can attend, have some fun and meet other teenagers from all over Europe. Parents do not participate in the summer camps.

Teen Camp: An Introduction

Our Teen Camps are specially designed camps for campers aged 13-17 living with a serious illness. There are two Teen Camps each summer, one in early June and one in mid-July.

Teens attend camp without their parents and have the opportunity to experience the magic of Barretstown and try their hand at some of our fantastic activities such as archery, high ropes, the climbing wall, canoeing and much more.

Teen camps are international and we also welcome teens from Spain, Germany, the UK, USA, Poland, Hungary, Denmark, Sweden, Cyprus, Greece and Italy.

For campers travelling from within Ireland, we have pick up points at central locations in Dublin, or for those arriving by car arrival time is from 10:30am to 12 noon and departure time is 10am on your last day. International campers will be collected from the airport and can arrive to camp throughout the day.
