Important Announcement!

To celebrate 50 years of Camp Shamrock the Directors would like to invite all who have been involved in or attended camp over this time. The Celebration will take place on the 9th of July 2016 at the Camp Shamrock site in Tollymore Forest Park. This is a very special occasion and we would love it if as many of you could join as possible to celebrate with us.
The evening will begin with a celebration meal in the cook shack followed by entertainment and hopefully the sharing of many great memories.
As we have limited space attendance will be by ticket only and
tickets can be purchased by contacting either Bert Ritchie or Sheba Clinton.
It will also be limited to age 18 and over and ticket prices are £20.
If you would like to stay overnight and join us for a nostalgic camp breakfast and Sunday service in the cook shack please also let us know.

Welcome to Camp Shamrock

Every summer something a little bit special happens in Tollymore Forest Park in the Mourne mountains of Northern Ireland. Since 1966 young people have been coming to Camp Shamrock to spend a week away from the hustle and bustle of modern life; to play, learn and laugh together come rain or shine and to make friends and memories that last a lifetime.

Tollymore Forest Park

Tollymore is a beautiful forest park in the Mourne Mountains of County Down, in Bryansford close to the seaside town of Newcastle. Every summer our campers hike in the forest, swim in the river and sleep under the stars in this very special place.

Camp is...

We asked some of our campers and counsellors, past and present, to tell us in one word what camp means to them. This video is what they said…

We can't wait to see you at Camp!
