Gala Retail is continuing its sponsorship of Starcamp for a second year, supporting it in its delivery of activity camps for Irish children.
Starcamp with Gala Retail Summer Camps will take place across 250 locations this summer, hosting near 30,000 children throughout July and August. The Irish convenience retailer will provide over €10,000 worth of prizes for participating children and their schools.
Starcamp is known nationwide for its award-winning Easter and Summer camps, which take place in more than 250 locations across Ireland each year.
Earlier this year, Starcamp with Gala Retail launched the first ‘National Confidence Day’ for children in Ireland with a special ‘I Believe in Me’ themed online show, designed to help Irish children to develop their confidence and self-esteem through participation in a range of fun activities.
The focus on building confidence and self-belief continues in Summer Camps with its ‘Be Confident’ theme, engaging the children at each camp in a range of activities that will help them to build self-esteem and self-confidence through participation in the camps activities which include music, dance, drama, camp games, magic, arts & crafts, comedy, fun masterclasses and so much more!
Speaking about the sponsorship of Starcamp, chief executive of Gala Retail, Gary Desmond, said: “Gala is proud to announce our continued sponsorship of ‘Starcamp with Gala Retail’ for a second year, supporting Starcamp in its delivery of both National Confidence Day earlier in the year and its annual Summer Camps taking place in communities across Ireland this Summer.
“Both Gala Retail and Starcamp are household names in communities across Ireland and there is a great synergy in this partnership. We are thrilled to sponsor Starcamp and support its delivery of fun and inclusive activity camps for children across the country this Summer.”
“Starcamp with Gala Retail cannot wait to kick off our Summer Camps for 2022,” said founder and director of Starcamp, Aideen O’Grady. “Earlier in the year we launched Ireland’s first ‘National Confidence Day’ with a free virtual show that was packed with activities to help children develop self-confidence and we are continuing that focus with our ‘Be Confident!’ theme for our Summer Camps.
“Our core ethos is about building children’s self-esteem and confidence and the activities that we run at the Summer Camps are designed to encourage this. The children are promoted to engage with others and put themselves out there, whether it’s speaking, acting or presenting – they are developing their skills and confidence, without even realising it and all while having fun.”
