FAQs below

From 2009 through to 2015, we ran a pre-season football camp in Germany.

They were a great success – the children had a brilliant time.

We are planning a repeat in 2019, going camping in Germany. This time for boys and girls, born from 2005 to 2009.

We will return to the same great place, where we have access to great facilities. The cost for the event is €299 per person, which will include flights, bus transfers, full accommodation, etc.

Where will the camp take place?

The camp will be in Stennweiler, close to Saarbrücken, near the French border.

Which children can go?

The camp is open to boys and girls aged between 9 to 14. This includes boys and girls born in the years 2005 to 2009.

How to register?  

We expect the camp to fill up very fast. You can register now  enniskerryfc.ie.

What is the cost of the camp?

The cost is €299 Euro per person, which will include flights, bus transfers in Germany, accommodation, food, etc. Just pocket money needed.

Why is there a booking deposit?

As soon as the minimum number of 32 children has been reached, we will book flights, for which we need the appropriate funds.

Do the adults pay the same as the kids?

Yes.

Do I have to be vetted etc if I travel as an adult on the camp?

Yes, all adults travelling must go through the club’s volunteer recruitment process. The only exception is for existing club volunteers, who have already gone through the process.

This is mandatory for all adults travelling, which means last minute additions of an adult wishing to join the trip are going to be very hard to accommodate (as the process takes a little time).

This aligns with the club’s commitment to excellence in child welfare, ensuring that everyone’s who’s travelling is on the same page, aware of the club’s ethos, and that we’ve taken as a club all reasonable steps to provide the most fun, safe environment as possible for both kids and travelling adults alike. The process involves: applying to volunteer with the club, references to vouch for the person as a great person to volunteer with kids, a vetting check, one-to-one chat with the club’s volunteer recruitment committee, and attendance on a once-off evening workshop around children’s welfare in sport.

What happens if You have to withdraw your child from the camp?

As soon as we reach the minimum number of 32 children, we have to book flights and your booking deposit cannot be returned. If you withdraw between April 30th and June 10th, €220 will not be refunded. If you withdraw after June 10th, the full €299 will not be refunded.

Is there a minimum number of children needed to run the camp?

Yes, we do need a minimum of 32 children. However, there is also a maximum number of children. We will not be able to accommodate more than 50 children. All on first come, first serve basis.

What happens if we don’t reach the minimum number of children?

If we don’t have at least 32 children registered by the deadline of March 1st, 2019, the event will be cancelled and the deposit will be refunded fully. 

How much pocket money should children bring?

The children do not need more than €50 Euro of pocket money for the week.

Where will the children sleep?

The children will sleep in tents. Tents and sleeping bags will be provided.

What about shower facilities?

Shower facilities and toilets are provided.

Where and what will the children be fed?

All food will be provided. We have a fully equipped kitchen available. Paul Conroy, a professional chef, will travel with us, thus ensuring a good and healthy diet. 

What happens if a child gets sick?

All children are required to have travel insurance and to have a European Health Insurance Card which can be obtained free of charge from the HSE. Both a doctor and a dentist are available within 200m walking distance to the camp site. 

What will the kids do all day long?

This camp is a training camp to prepare for the start of the football season. While we are planning numerous other activities to keep the kids occupied, the emphasis is on playing football. We plan to participate in tournaments on both Saturday and Sunday! 

What activities will there be?

An outdoor swimming pool is about 4 km walk and we do plan to go swimming. If your child cannot swim, please let us know. We also plan other events, e.g. a table tennis or a chess tournament. And we will certainly repeat the activity enjoyed by all kids – the daily forest run at 7am.

Help needed!

Who is organizing the camp?

This camp is a big task. Thus we have formed an organizing committee. We would like to encourage parents to join us and travel with us, as we need lots of help.
