Knockadoon Camp has traditionally only provided a Youth Camp for the summer months. In the twelve weeks of the summer holidays a variety of groups use the camp, including SVP, Knockadoon Youth Weeks, Folk Liturgy Week and Coláiste Cúram.
Knockadoon Camp has a number of bunk houses which generally have two bunk beds in a room (with some having one bunk bed). Between the various houses it means that the total capacity of the camp is around 150 beds, which practically means up to 100 campers and then the rest for leaders and staff.
Beside the bump houses the camp has a Chapel, two multi-purpose Sport Halls and small meeting room and a Canteen, Kitchen with a Meeting Room attached.
Going forward we would also like to offer off-season opportunities to use Knockadoon Camp. While we cannot offer the same amount of beds off-season, we are currently in the process of upgrading our facilities to be able to provide more capacity outside of the summer months.
Possibilities are for the use of Knockadoon include:
- Day school retreats
- Overnight school retreats
- Weekend retreats
- Family days
- Sport camps
- Diving camps
