Following the huge success of our French camps in Ireland last summer, Equinox Education Services are pleased to announce two new French + Fun camps this July, which will be aimed specifically for local teens between the ages of 13 and 17 years.

The ‘French + Fun’ camps will be based at two locations in Carlow and Thurles and will deliver fun, class-based French

lessons in the morning, followed by a programme of daily activities in the afternoons, when students will have the opportunity to integrate with other international students.

The camps will operate for one week* from Monday, 6th to Friday 10th July next, between 9.30am to 1pm (15 hours) and include FREE afternoon activities from 2pm to 4pm, when participants will have the opportunity to integrate with students of  other nationalities and enjoy a wide variety of sports and fun-based activities such as dancing, drama and cooking.



Speaking at the launch of this year’s French + Fun camp Equinox’s Managing Director, Noel Doyle said “the French camps were a resounding success for us last summer, with many local students enjoying the opportunity to get away from their screens to lean French, whilst taking advantage of the opportunity of mixing with international students in a fun setting” He added “the French + Fun camp is also ideal for local students wishing to learn French for the first time or indeed, brush up in preparation for their junior or leaving certificate”.

Whilst Equinox Education Services also offer French and other intensive, immersive language courses through partner schools abroad, the Irish based camp is a much more convenient option for those parents or students looking for something closer to home, before perhaps considering an overseas option as the next step. Participation in this year’s French camp is open to teens of all abilities, where they can be assured that they will be all welcome to participate in lessons that will be delivered in an interactive, enjoyable and inclusive format.

The French + Fun camps also offer an ideal alternative to other local summer camps, especially for those parents that want to encourage their son or daughter to continue learning ahead of the start of a new academic year.
