WS individuals must be aged 18 years or over and must be able to speak and understand English. An English-speaking personal helper who is over 18 years of age (preferably a family member) must also accompany them. The helper will be required to have Police clearance.

The WSAI committee will provide all instruments and teaching staff for the musical activities. Teachers for the musical activities will be provided based on participants’ choices on application so changes cannot be made once an application is accepted and a program is worked out for a participant.

The Music/Activity Camp is open to all WS families world-wide. However, priority will be given to Irish WS families if number of applications exceeds the number of places available.

Some form of recreational activity for the group will be arranged at night during the holiday week e.g. a singsong, a talent show, etc.
