Over 100,000 children have already registered for Kellogg's GAA Cúl Camps
By John Harrington
Another chapter in the remarkable success story of the Kellogg’s GAA Cúl Camps was written last week when registrations for the coming summer camps passed the 100,000 mark.
Never before has that milestone been passed so quickly and it now looks like participation levels will be on a par with the record-breaking summer of 2019.
“Compared to any other year we're way ahead of where we would normally be at this time of the year,” says the GAA’s National Cúl Camp Coordinator, Charles Harrison.
“We currently have six times the number of bookings that we had by this stage in 2019.
“We have almost 70% of our camps booked, but there a still places available for people that would like to book.
“We've currently 105,000 children booked on the site and will probably have capacity for 158,000 when all the camps go live.
“We're delighted because it was unknown territory this year and it was hard to gauge whether people were going to book or not. I suppose last year was such a confidence boost for us that we went through the Cúl Camp period unscathed in terms of Covid so people have confidence in the project to send their children to the camps.
“The feedback we're getting via the website is that people sent their children last year and there were no issues, hence the booking surge this year.
"It's really good to hear that, and it's down to all the hard work our staff and the volunteers did last year on the ground and hopefully we can build on that for the 2021 Cúl Camp season.”
Some Cúl Camps have already reached maximum capacity but others haven’t and some more have yet to open their registration process.

“Go to the website and go to check if your camp is still available because there's still places at camps available. If your local camp is booked out, be sure to check out other camps in the area,” says Harrison.
“Check in as well with your club as well because there are camps that have still to go live in the likes of Cork and Fermanagh and a couple of other counties where their camps may still not be up on the site now but will be in the next couple of weeks.”
