We are happy to facilitate a number of placements on an annual basis. We run camps between March – November each year. Your placement has to fit within our camp programme.
During the autumn we run Family Camps and Bereavement Camps for families. We also run one children and teen camp which runs over the Halloween break. Completing your placement at Barretstown is a truly unforgettable experience – fun activities, lots of laughs and the knowledge that you are directly helping seriously ill kids and their families turn their lives around. All opportunities are residential with food and accommodation provided for the duration of placement. Supervision and guidance is provided for all students.
Some of the third level institutions we currently work with are DCU, Tralee IT, Mary I, Carlow IT, Sligo It, Dundalk IT, and GMIT
The students are studying courses such as Early Childhood Education, Social Care, Adapted Sports, Sports Science and Health, Outdoor Education or similar.
