Sign up for our Summer Camp 2017
Celbridge Youth Café management and volunteers wish to inform young people, parents and the community that the Youth Café will be suspended from 7th July 2017, until further notice.
The reason for this unfortunate development has been brought about by very low single figure attendances.
Since September 2016 the volunteers of the Youth Café have tried various ways to encourage young people to attend and have alternated days and times to try and suit as many young people as possible – in addition we have undertaken visits to our local secondary schools in an attempt to encourage young people to attend.
It is very unfortunate that Celbridge will lose a valuable asset for young people, during July and August 2017, however with such low numbers it was inevitable.
Nevertheless with funding from Kildare County Council we will run our planned Summer Camp from 14-18th August for teenagers aged 13-16. It will be 5 days of fun, creativity and bonding. Places are limited and €15 per participant. Minimum numbers will be required for the summer camp to go ahead. To book a place email email@example.com or call 085-727 6634.
In August, the management and volunteer group will meet to discuss the future of the youth café and assess if it is possible to re-open.
We would very much welcome and value public opinion about the need and/or purpose of a Youth Café in Celbridge. Please share your views with us by emailing them to firstname.lastname@example.org, post to Celbridge Youth Café, The Mill, Celbridge or send us a Facebook message.
