Let’s Go! with iPad Camps

iPad Camp Overview

Don’t miss out on 5 days of fun working with iPads – both indoors and outdoors!  why not give your child the opportunity to partake in a fun filled camp whilst working on an apple iPad that is bursting with fantastic, preloaded applications/ apps which are both educational and exciting. In 2012 we introduced iPad and Sports Summer camps to our programme. On these camps, we combined the best of our sports camp with the latest technology available.

The feedback has been amazing and we continue to offer these camps in conjunction with our traditional sports camps in selected venues throughout the country. Places are limited on these courses and children must be aged between 8 and 12 years. Check here to find a venue close to you.

These camps are designed to suit the child who loves technology and some sport. During the day children spend 70% of the time working with iPads and 30% participating in sporting activities such as KMX Karting, Zorb Balling, Human Table Football, High Energy Assault Course and lots, lots more!!! Children will work in pairs (one iPad per pair) on Apple’s iPad tablet with a suite of apps that do amazing things with photos, movies, coding, music and much more - iPads are designed to encourage your child to communicate their best thinking in compelling new ways. Don’t worry if your child has no knowledge of iPads, we have designed the course to teach your child all the skills they need to use an iPad or to enhance the skills your child may already. The emphasis is on taking part, meeting new friends, and having fun. During the week, your child will create music, movies, video documentaries, stunning presentations with animation, effects and lots more. This year we are introducing Sphero to our programme. Sphero is a spherical robot and your child will have endless fun controlling it with the help of the iPad. 

Don’t worry, your child will not be sitting at a desk all day. We even offer your children the opportunity to try iPad Orienteering and to take and edit fantastic photographs of nature through various 'photo missions’!!

The course will be delivered by a qualified Garda vetted teacher who has an in-depth knowledge of iPads and technology.
