Hazel & Bella

It was really good fun, we made loads of friends. They make sure everyone felt included and the teachers gave good feedback on what we made. I never knew that some things were possible like the stop motion and the led lights. We did loads of cool things we didn't expect. Would definitely do it again.

A great camp that encouraged creativity, expression & learning in a fun safe environment! Our daughter thoroughly enjoyed it and will definitely be attending another one in the future! 100% we would recommend this camp to family and friends! Thank you!

Excellent camp. Well organised with different activities everyday. Staff were lovely

My 11 year old is still happy to go to these camps. She produced some great art this week and got out of her comfort zone by making new friends ! Highly recommend

My daughter absolutely loved the art camp! I normally have to ask lots of questions to find out how she got on in school or camp etc but she came out of the art camp every day smiling and full of chat about what they did. She loved her teachers and had so much fun with all the projects. She wants to do this camp every year and try the steam camp now too!

My daughter really enjoyed the week and loved all the activities. She made a new friend they both have a lot in common, it’s great for her to be making new friends especially after the last 2 years of restrictions, many thanks to all the team ?

I loved it, there were really good ideas for the art. I had a great fun and I loved going outside for lunch. I made really good friends. I loved the T-shirt we made on the last day.

My daughter Caoimhe really enjoyed the camp. She attended on her own which I was slightly worried about but she was very excited to return every day. Every day was different, the camp offered lots of variety which she loved and she has continued to practice some of the skills she learned over the past week. All of the teachers on the camp were very friendly and she enjoyed getting to know the other children as well. After it was over, she asked if she could go again next year so it's a great experience for her. Thanks so much, we'll see you again next year.

My daughter absolutely loved the Art Camp option by Designer Minds. She was delighted coming home everyday with her art work and all the new techniques she learned. Highly recommend this camp.

Dear Designer Minds Team,

Thank you for catering for my son last week.
He rated each day in the scale of 10. Overall the camp scored 41 points. The main points lost were for the fact that the younger group got to do activities before the older group :)
Very happy over all.

He did lose a black and orange hoodie on the last day. I wonder if he didn't leave it in the hall? And If he did, are you there this week? If not, that's no problem at all. I understand that anything found might have been removed to the bin.

Kind regards,

Lily lived this camp and was buzzing every day when I collected her. Great mix of activities. She wants to do it again next year.
Fiona, Cork

My daughter and her friend loved every minute of this camp and she can be hard to please! You guys did a really great job ?? Great variety of activities! I’d strongly recommend!

Louis and Jennifer

My daughter really, really enjoyed it. It was great! All the painting and drawing was fantastic. She hopes she can go back next year:)

Abby loved every day of the camp. Her favourite was claymation & the robot out of recycling items.

My son loved his week at Designer Minds. His creations that came home were excellent. It really inspired him, he has great ideas for projects he wants to do himself now. He’s already looking forward to the chance to do it again!

Ruby had a great week, every day she got to explore a different creative area, use new skills and along the way make some new friends and have lots of fun.

The camp offered a variery of activities for creative kids. My daughter enjoyed herself and made friends with similar interests.

Elsa had great fun and loved going in and every day.

My son loved your camp! He thoroughly enjoyed all the different activities and couldn't say enough about the camp leaders, he said they were really friendly and offered great advice.

I highly recommend this camp to anyone who has a child interested in arts and crafts, my son is already asking me to sign him up next year!!

Thank you again and well done!

Really enjoyed the camp, loved everything we did during the week. Teachers were very nice & helpful and I had good fun.
