Coming from Ballincollig, go through Lissarda and as you leave Lissarda, take the left turn for Kilmurry and then take an immediate right turn which you can see from the main road. Continue along this road twisting right over a little humpback bridge and then take the first boreen to the right. Continue until you come to the second set of brown paddock gates on the left.

N.B. - during Summer Camp, all daily boxes must arrive from the West as turn into parking field too sharp from the east

The expectation is that each family with a member attending Camp will do one substantial job (e.g. overnight supervision), or several smaller jobs (e.g. other supervision slots, cooking a meal). Breda Keane (087 6112769) is compiling the Rota, so contact her as soon as possible to secure your preference. Unfilled slots will then be allocated to the remaining families. We also expect families to help prepare the grounds at Carrigdarrery beforehand, and to help dismantle Camp and tidy up on Friday evening, so that we leave everything as we found it. Every family must please take at least one bag of rubbish home with them on Friday. Thanks in advance to everyone for their efforts! It couldn’t happen without everyone’s help.
