Cúl Camp - Fun, Friendship & Sport 2019-05-02 09:46:00

Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camps is Ireland’s biggest children’s summer camp, and this year, with over 150,000 children taking part across Ireland for a week of fun, friendship and sport. 

Uachtarán Chumann Lúthchleas Gael John Horan said: “The growth of the Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camps has been one of our great success stories with an 8 per cent increase in attendance year on year in 2018 alone

The survey of 1,000 parents, carried out to mark the launch of Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camps, exposed the fact that nearly 60 per cent of Irish parents do not know the recommended daily amount of physical activity their children should have, with a third believing 30 minutes is adequate.

New research reveals a fifth of Irish parents can’t afford to get their children involved in sport with almost a third, (31 per cent) of parents saying that they just don’t have the time to bring to take them to training or games. 

As a consequence, worryingly, 66 per cent revealed that their children rely too heavily on technology, with YouTube and TV being the biggest culprits even though nearly all parents surveyed (86 per cent) agree that excessive use of technology has a negative effect on their children. 

A place on a Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camps costs €60 for the first child; €55 for the second child; €45 for the third and subsequent children. In the North, the cost is £50 for the first child, £45 for the second child, £40 for the third and subsequent children.

This year the Blarney GAA Cul Camp will take place from the 1st - 5th of July on club grounds.  Registration details will be advertised closer to the event.
