Kellogg and the GAA have today announced the return of its Cúl Camps, for 2023.
The camps will kick off late June and will run up to the end of August, offering children aged six-13 the unique opportunity to experience an action-packed and fun-filled week of activity during the summer holidays which revolves around sustaining participant involvement in Gaelic Games.
Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camps have long played a vital role in helping young people to explore new interests, stay active as well as creating new and meaningful life-long friendships.
Every summer, Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camps are 'at the heart of the community, bringing people together and celebrating diversity'.
Sarah Ferguson, general manager, Kellogg Ireland, commented, "Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camps are all about making memories; memories give us a sense of identity, provide us with joy, and shape the way we see the world around us.
"Our goal is to provide young people with the opportunity to make life-long friends and unforgettable memories that they will treasure forever.”
On hand to launch this year’s camps were Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camps ambassadors and sport superstars, Galway Hurler David Burke, Kerry LGFA player Louise Ni Mhuircheartaigh, Wexford Camogie player Ciara Storey and Cavan Footballer Raymond Galligan. Each one of these county players attended Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camps as a child and credit the camps as a source of some of their most cherished memories.
The sporting superstars were joined by future stars, Karson Butler aged 12, Issy Downey aged 12, Fortune Beta aged 12, Kasey Cromwell aged 11, Levi Hutch aged nine, and Patricia Grace Pop aged seven, who will be taking part in this year’s camps and listened in as the county players recalled their favourite memories.
Galway GAA star David Burke recalls one of his favourite memories of Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camps.
“For me, I always looked forward to meeting up with my friends to play hurling on sunny summer days down at St. Thomas’s GAA pitch. A great chance to make new friends, develop my hurling skills and to participate in the mixed hurling leagues,” he said.
While Kerry footballer Louise Ni Mhuircheartaigh adds how some of her best friends are those whom she met at Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camps in her younger days “The Kellogg’s GAA Cul Camps were always the perfect opportunity to develop and practice my skills for hours every day with my friends, to make new friends and we always had a lot of fun along the way too!”
