The Armagh camps will start on Monday 4th July and run for the first five weeks of the summer up until Friday 5th August. The following clubs will host camps this year, Annaghmore, Pearse Og, Ballyhegan, Redmond O Hanlons, Derrynoose, Dromintee, Clan Na Gael, Silverbridge, Saint Michaels Newtown, Culloville, Armagh Harps, Thomas Davis Corrinshego and Lissummon.
Registration to the camps is available at gaa.ie/kelloggsculcamps or via completing and returning an application form to Denis Hollywood, Athletic Grounds, Dalton Road, Armagh BT60 4AE. Registration can also be completed on the first morning of the camp but attendees are encouraged to apply before the camp is due to start in order to guarantee the kit. All attendees will receive a free quarter zip top, jersey and backpack. Application forms are available at all Armagh Primary schools or by contacting the County Board office.
Activities at the Cúl Camps 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 and promoting school and club links
