Knockadoon Youth Week

Making memories that last a lifetime.Description:

The Knockadoon Youth Week (KYW) offers a huge range of fun activities and competitions such as football, dodgeball, table tennis, pool, darts, cycling, canoeing, swimming & diving and a sports day to name but a few. We also have a jam packed evening schedule which includes discos (“Project KAD”), talent shows (“KYWs Got Talent”), bunkhouse wars, cinema nights and the most recent and exciting addition to the KYW, bubble footballs.

The week itself is run exclusively by volunteer youth leaders. Many of them have been campers before and wish to give something back, some of whom use their holiday time to come down as a leader. On camp, the leaders organise the activities / competitions, ensure the schedule runs smoothly for the week and supervise the campers for the entire week. Off camp, the leaders plan the week, organise numerous fundraisers and attend essential training courses to maintain a high level of safety for the campers.

With over 250 young people attending each year over the three weeks, the KYW has approximately 60-70 youth leaders aged between 17-29 years old who take responsibility for the week. All of our leaders are Garda vetted and have undertaken child protection training with many of them having various courses behind them such as First Aid, SAFEtalk, Mentoring Programmes and Lifeguard training.

  2. Knockadoon is an action packed camp that has allowed me to develop life long friendships. It has been a second home to me for many summers.

  3. Highly Recommended

    I can’t put into words how good this camp is, it just has to be experienced. There’s something for everyone. Check out the Knockadoon Youth Week videos on YouTube. You won’t be disappointed.
