Whizzkids Residential Camps
Our residential summer camps for teenagers, caters for 13-18 year olds. The Residential camp will
have all the fun activities of a regular day camp, but with extra time on campus, it is a more enriching
experience and an insight into what it would be like to be third level student.
This will be particularly so for those interested in studying IT, as we introduce students to Scratch
programming and HTML. Tech 'n' tours programmes are on offer to group bookings.
6 Days on Campus
Tech activities run until 3.30PM and there are many leisure facilities available for use in the afternoon. Dinner is served at 6. At 8PM we have our evening programme of activities, such as cinema, video game competitions and disco on campus. Arrival is 3PM on Sunday and departure is at 12PM on Saturday.
10 Days Tech 'n' Tours
We can offer a 10 day package for groups who also want to see some of Ireland's top tourist spots. Based at the University of Limerick, which is situated at the gateway to the beautiful and rugged West of Ireland with world reknowned sites such as the Cliffs of Moher only a short drive away. The region also boasts a journey back in time at Bunratty Castle or hi-speed Mountain Bike Trails for those who want a bit of action! This option is subject to numbers. Please enquire for further details.
University of Limerick
The University of Limerick boasts over 300 acres of the finest parkland campus in Ireland. With UL's superb facilities, first class on-campus accommodation and it's reputation as an innovative and cutting edge university, this is the ideal location to immerse yourself in the Whizzkids experience.
Attendees will have a private en-suite room in on-campus accommodation close to the Sports Arena and all facilities. Each house has a fully fitted kitchen and a common room for down time. Whizzkids provide adult overnight supervisors and University Security patrol the accommodation areas for additional safety.
Health and Safety
Whizzkids Summer camps are a lot of fun, but we are very conscious of the safety of those attending. Staff-pupil ratios will be 10:1 in day time. Night time supervision ratios will be max 9:1. For both our day and residential camps our instructors are fully qualified teachers. Staff are fully briefed on health and safety measures particular to each University.
The University of Limerick is on the outskirts of the city just off the N7, the primary Limerick-Dublin road and is well signposted from all approaches. The University is very well serviced by bus from William St in the city centre. Taxi from the City Centre is approx €12. The University is 16 miles from Shannon airport.
