    Testimonials

    "Thank you and all the team for a fabulous camp last week.  Linh had the best time ever and loved every day.  It was terrific that she got to experience new sports for her such as fencing, karate, badminton, volley ball, tag rugby and uni hoc.  Her target this year was to reach the top of the climbing wall, which she succeeded to do on day two and was thrilled with herself.  I have to say it is the best value that I have come across as my children have done lots of camps but the TCD summer sports camp is No. 1.  Already Linh is looking forward to 2016.  I know you and the team have a busy summer and I wish you all well with the remaining weeks.  You all do a superb job and I want to thank you again for making Linh’s week in TCD such an enjoyable and memorable one. 
    Thanking you. 
    All the best, until next year.

     “Dear Michelle, my daughter Bianca spent two weeks in your Summer Camp (Red Hawks, from July 14th to 25th) and I'm writing now (after our holidays at the seaside), because I want to THANK YOU so much for everything you did to make her feel welcome. She ENJOYED the Camp VERY MUCH! She met some lovely friends and also the young people who looked after the kids were very very nice. The activities were exciting and she did lots of things she had never done before. And no need to mention how much English she learnt! While I was working in Dublin, it was a great help for me knowing that she was so well looked after and enjoying herself in a safe and beautiful environment!I'd also ask you to thank Rosie, with whom I exchanged e-mail in the beginning. I would address this letter to the Director of the Sports Centre, if I knew him/her, just to tell what a wonderful service you are running.Thank you again, and if there's anything I can do for you from Italy (or from Tuscany), just let me know.”

    "I just wanted to drop you an email to say a Huge Thank You to you and all of those who worked at the summer camp last week. The range of activities was great and Luca had a fantastic time. He has even asked to come back (always a good sign!).

    The camp really helped improved his confidence and independence – he did things for you that he would never do for me at home!"

    - Vickey, Ireland

    "Dear Michelle, Once back in Mallorca, we would like to express our gratitude for your kind attention. We have felt really pampered during the whole process, and you made it possible for our family to have a great experience. We want to thank particularly your support with Aurora, our little daughter. Our 3 kids enjoyed the Summer Camp and made new friends. We were impressed of the team you have to take care of the children, and felt quite confident that you were taking good care of our kids. So, again, thanks for everything and pls contact us if you ever come to Mallorca, we would love to see you here some day!"
