Summer Camp

When we ran our first summer camp for teens – July 2016 – we didn’t know it would be such a great success!

We replicated it in July 2017 and the kids were enthusiastic! They all got something really valuable out of it and hopefully….they’ll be working in the Media soon!

Check out our promotional videos from July 2016 and July 2017

We are in a gap year, but we are confident the next summer camp (summer 2019) will be truly awesome!

Stay tuned….details are coming soon!!!”

What they say about Summer Camp

  • I started studying with the Irish Academy of Public Relations after a friend of mine recommended their certificate course in News Journalism. The course allowed me to return to study with like minded people in a relaxed and professional set up at an affordable price. I have since upgraded to the Academy’s Diploma course in journalism and just recently attended their one day certificate course in Radio Broadcasting which was held at the Radio Na Life studios in Dublin. Studying with the Academy has been a pleasure from day one and their help and guidance has been a crucial factor in enabling me to achieve a life-long ambition.

  • I completed the PR & Marketing Online Course. It gave me the latest news about social media and social network managing. The idea of creating a strategy from the first module was brilliant, it was not only theory but practical.The tutor´s responses were great and helpful to understand every point that was not clear enough. Thanks for the opportunity to join you!

  • I believe that personal development is a non-stop process so I decided to study the Event Management Diploma at OP Academy. Being in the field for so long. I expected traditional and theoretical courses, however I enjoyed the challenge in each course and I definitely learned new techniques and methods. To anyone considering a job in event management, go ahead and get this diploma as it will boost your career to a new level. OP Academy team is friendly, professional and always ready to support, and the instructors are the best in the field.

    Event Management Graduate

  • As a student, I pride myself in graduating from OP Academy. The entire course with OPA was convenient, very helpful and perfect for busy professionals. Most of all, for someone with very Little background in Event Management, I was not expecting to ace the course. Eventually, after finishing the Diploma, I’m pretty satisfied with practicing Event Management on the ground. I was already considering taking a new course as early as being halfway through Event Management. I have been truly motivated, and I am very thankful to the coaches!
