summer camps

We are so delighted to welcome back our Star Performer to Starcamp 2024, our title sponsor, Gala Retail.

As an Irish-owned company with strong roots in communities across Ireland, we share similar values to Gala Retail, as well as a very similar footprint in terms of our locations.

The strength of Starcamp is in the confidence that it gives young people, and with a strong presence in towns and cities, there’s a real synergy with the 220 Gala stores across Ireland, who are at the heart of communities across the country.

Now in its third year of sponsorship, the support of Gala Retail has enabled us to grow, invest in online content during the pandemic, create new content for our physical camps and bring new activities to children right across Ireland. 

As part of the sponsorship deal, Gala is providing prizes for participating children and their schools each year, along with a co-branded bag and certificate of achievement for every young person.

Keep an eye out for Gala Gifts as they sponsor many of our competitions throughout the year!

Gala Retail CEO – Gary Desmond, STARCAMP Owner & Director – Aideen O’ Grady, Rory O’ Connor from Rory’s Stories, TV & Radio personality – Lucy Kennedy are joined by Starcamp children at the recent launch of STARCAMP with Gala Retail 2023.
