I am American, parents were of Ireland, and I spent a few summers of my youth there. I recall that during those summers, some of my cousins would go to Irish-language camp(s) in the Gaelic-speaking districts. Does anyone know of such camps today, and whether any would be suitable for children with no prior learning in Irish? I may be taking my children this summer, and my 12 and 14 year old daughters might enjoy and get something out of a one-week camp.

Most of the camps are geared towards Irish schoolchildren who have some knowledge of Irish.

Here are links to some organisations who run courses:-
