St. Patrick’s Primary School Ardboe to host third Tyrone Camp!

Wednesday May 18th 2016

St. Patrick’s Primary School in Ardboe Co Tyrone are delighted to host the Michaela Foundation Girl’s Summer Camp for the first time in 2016! 

This provides a wonderful venue for local girls in the surrounding areas to take part in the camp for the first time, or to inspire others as a Michaela Foundation Summer Camp Volunteer!

As a volunteer you can have the opportunity to support young girls in the local community, helping them build confidence and self-esteem, whilst sharing your skills and enhancing your own CV.


From 11th July to the 15th of July 2016, a team of volunteers will deliver a host of inspiring activities to girls aged 11-13, centered on Michaela Foundation’s life without limits ethos in the primary school situated on the lough shore. Each day the leaders will deliver activities in Fun, Faith, Fashion, Well Being and Fáilte, with the ultimate aim of not only giving the participating Campettes a week to remember but also helping them grow in self-esteem and confidence.

Volunteering at Camp is a perfect opportunity to enhance a CV, make new friends and have fun! Furthermore, each volunteer will also receive an exclusive Michaela Foundation Camp jersey from O’Neill’s. Activity specific training will be provided for all voluntary leaders. First aid and child protection training will also be provided for all volunteers.

The Ardboe camp is one of 21 Camps that will take place in 2016, a year which marks Michaela Foundation’s 5th anniversary. The growth of the Michaela Foundation Summer Camps would not have been possible without the commitment and dedication of hundreds of inspirational volunteers who share their skills, enthusiasm and time to make each Michaela Foundation camp a unique experience for so many young people.

Whilst volunteering at Camp leaders not only make a real difference to the lives of the Campettes but they get a lot out of the experience too.

“It was definitely one of the best weeks of my life, I met so many new people and have been recommending the camp to every parent I meet, I keep telling them that it is completely different from any other regular summer camp, it develops both Campettes and volunteers as people” 2015 Summer Camp Voluntary Leader.
