Be under no illusion, the official launch of STARCAMP 2019 was pure magic!
Mind magician, Keith Barry, was present at the launch to remind children of the Starcamp ethos, “believe in yourself and you can achieve anything!”
As STARCAMP kicks off their biggest and best summer camp line-up to date, they have teamed up with the renowned mind magician to send out a national reminder to parents everywhere that the use of the imagination, courage and self-esteem are incredibly positive tools for children for life.
“Children simply need to play, pretend, dream and be happy in a safe environment, where they are encouraged and praised,” Aideen O’ Grady, Starcamp Director, commented.
“Starcamp is for everyone, not just the born performers” Keith Barry remarked.
With over 40 percent of boys now attending, it truly is a camp with broad appeal and its benefits are reaching children everywhere. Parents who had concerns about their child enjoying it have been mesmerized by the impact. The growth and number of return children annually prove this, along with the thousands of testimonials received over the past twelve years.
STARCAMP 2019, as always will include singing, hip-hop, acting, arts and crafts, confidence building, news-reporting, camp games, superheroes, star olympics, surprises galore, but there will be a special focus this year on magic, the use of the imagination and comedy!
Staff at Starcamp HQ work all year round to ensure the most wondrous experience possible for all who attend. A little insight into this years line up shows Toy Story 4, The Lion King, Mary Poppins and David Walliams’ Gangsta’ Granny for the older kids.
Starcamp was a memorable winner on Dragon’s Den, has won numerous awards and is widely recognised for leading the way in what it does. With a number of camps already booked out, don’t delay in securing your place. Every child receives a Starcamp t-shirt, cert and lots more!
