Irish Dominicans run summer camp in Knockadoon

Irish Dominican friars at their summer camp for young people

Since 1926 the Irish Dominicans have run an annual summer camp at Knockadoon in southern Ireland for young people. The first of this year's summer camps has just begun, running from 7-14 July. The second one is from 14-21 July, and places are still available. Each camp is run by a team of youth volunteers together with Dominican friars, and combines outdoor activities and sports with indoor games and recreation. Each day also includes catechesis which aims to form one's faith, so that both body and mind is developed at the summer camp.
