Community, What's On
From the 1st to the 5th July, Michaela Foundation is hosting a girl’s summer camp for girls aged 11 to 13 in St. Peter’s Primary School in Cloughreagh. The Michaela Girls Summer Camp is based on 5 core elements: Faith, Fashion, Fun, Irish and Well-being. Jam packed with fun activities, here is a little taster of what Campettes will be doing—planting seeds and having parties in Faith, unleashing their creativity and individuality making fascinators in Fashion, decorating cupcakes, learning their favourite pop songs as gaelige in Irish, zumba dancing and drama in wellbeing! All of this will be topped off by a very special Camp Celebration on Friday. In addition to all of these activities and treats which the girls will be making to bring home, each attendee will also receive a Limited Edition Michaela Girls Summer Camp jersey, unique to Michaela Campettes. Michaela Foundation held their first ever camp in Tyrone last year, which was an awe-inspiring success. The Campettes had a wonderful time, with one Campette commenting, “This week has been one of the best weeks of my life to date. We have learnt new things, had fun, made friends, played games and learnt new dances. We also learned how everyone is special in a different way.” And parents noticed the impact too, a parent recently posted on Facebook, “Enrol your young girl – she will love it! Last year my daughter emerged much more mature and thoughtful.” John McAreavey from Michaela Foundation said, “We are delighted to be able to spread the camp to 8 counties this summer, including Armagh. Our Tyrone camp was full within 12 hours of registration opening this year, which I think shows just how much the Campettes enjoyed it and how much parents valued it last year. “We have a great team of volunteers at our Armagh camp in Cloughreagh, which is being led by Suzanne Burns. They having been putting in lots of hard work to ensure each Campette will have a fun, enriching and memorable week! I would encourage people to sign up soon, as places are going fast.” To sign up to the camp or to find more information, visit www.themichaelafoundation.com – Camp costs £50 and runs from 9.15am to 3.45pm each day.
