YES! You can!
Summer Camp theme soars in song
Co.Kildare, 16 August 2013
There for you, There with you
Today’s Irish Day, with its laughter, song, humour, friendliness, endless jokes and noisy enjoyment, sums up the character of this year’s international summer camp: family and friends and unstinting support and very much fun – and everyone involved in some way connected to the Order of Malta.

Is feidir leat!
The Camp song, sung by 600 voices, raised the rafters at the last formal ceremony. Its theme ‘Yes You Can’ has been borne out in so many examples of guests trying out new experiences and testing themselves, with robust encouragement from all around them. Irish guest Laura, after her first ever carriage ride, beamed: “I may not be able to drive a car, but I can drive a horse and cart!”
