GENERATION IRELAND, the latest International Programme from The Irish Education Academy, is a 14 day Irish Residential Cultural & Activity Camp based in Donegal, Ireland for the Summer of 2018.
Open to Irish-American teenagers aged 13-16 years old, GENERATION IRELAND will provide a safe, secure and fun environment to learn the history and culture of Ireland and naturally fall in love with the place your ancestors called home. Immersed in the Irish Culture via our world renowned song, music and dance, all campers will get an overall understanding of the modern history of our fair isle including how our two countries are connected - and an inspiring look into Donegal`s rich folklore.
They will enjoy activities such as surfing and coasteering on the Wild Atlantic Way, mountain climbing and orienteering up the Majestic Errigal Mountain and down the Poisoned Glen. The creativity of the Irish Traditional Arts will be explored by the craft of wood burning, turf sculpting, Celtic design and traditional Irish cooking. Day trips will feature lots of fun from cliff hanging to island hopping in the Atlantic to exploring castles and picking shells on miles of golden sandy beaches. And as the camp is located in the heart of the Donegal Gaeltacht, the Irish speaking region, they will learn some simple phrases of our beautiful language, Gaeilge.
