Summer Camps - The Confidence Clinic

Best Life Camps 2022

The Confidence Clinic Best Life Camps are a fantastic experience, they are all about helping children to live their best lives. Our camps are filled with the best coaching techniques and tools available, they include lots of fun and group games, daily yoga & mindfulness, creative activities, life lessons & social skills. We provide plenty of free time during breaks to allow children to mix & play with each other. Every year, we see lots of parents swapping numbers on the last day of camp as children have made new friends & want to stay in touch! You can find lots of photos from previous camps on our Facebook page 'The Confidence Clinic'.                                          

Children love our camps! We spend as much time as possible outdoors having fun; playing games and enjoying creative activities. We also spend time sitting in a circle together, learning about growing friendships, speaking up for yourself, dealing with mean words, the gratitude attitude, boosting your confidence, and believing in yourself.

Our Best Life Camps have been developed using Life Coaching Techniques and philosophies that have been fine-tuned from over 10 years of coaching children. The underlying principle of our camps is that children learn best when they are happy, relaxed and having fun, while they play and make new friends they will be discovering new ways to feel confident and strong.

Children are generally grouped according to age, but we want to help everyone feel as comfortable as possible so if siblings wish to stay together, that's fine too!

Examples of Topics Covered

  • Growing Strong Friendships - this is our first lesson so that children make friends immediately
  • The Gratitude Attitude
  • A Confidence Booster - I Love Me!
  • How to handle anxiety and worries
  • Finding your Happy Place
  • Dealing with Mean Words
  • Standing up & Speaking up


Age & Ability:

Our camps are designed for boys and girls aged from 6-12 years old.

We have learned that when children are young, they are not always capable of sitting down and joining in during our life lessons. In our experience, children who have finished Junior Infants will have the best camp experience.

If your child has any additional needs, it's essential that you call and let us know prior to the registration process. This helps us to understand their requirements and to determine whether or not the camp is a good fit for them. We will always do our best to accommodate all children, but it's important to note that we may have 30+ children at a camp and we cannot provide one to one supervision at any camp. Our priority is the comfort of all children so if you need to discuss anything, please reach out to Caoimhe or Tracey .


Our camps are very popular and fill up quickly every year, so book early as places are limited! Bookings are non-transferable.

General Information

Children should wear comfortable, loose clothing. Leggings, shorts or tracksuit bottom are recommended as we will be doing yoga! Children should bring a healthy lunch and plenty of drinks - water or fruit juice, no cans or bottles please - with them each day.
Children may bring a small cushion or light blanket for relaxations/meditations, but this is a personal preference. Please do not bring anything precious to the camp as we will be outdoors as much as possible and items may be lost.
