The Department of Education and Skills of the Irish state with responsibility for education and training has announced through the Minister for Education and Skills, Richard Bruton TD, and Minister for Training, Skills and Innovation, John Halligan TD, that Higher Education Institutions will deliver 3,800 ICT camp places for second level students during the summer and early autumn as a result of additional funding provided in Budget 2017 to support this initiative. Donegal Digital's project partner, the Letterkenny Institute of Technology, has already offered a Summer Computing Camp focused in programming and web design.

According to Minister Bruton, "a goal of the Action Plan for Education is to build stronger bridges between education and the wider community, support learners to make informed career choices and enhance our capacity to meet national and regional skills needs". Furthermore, Minister Halligan added that "Through the implementation of the ICT Skills Action Plan 2014-2018 we are seeking to increase the supply of ICT Professionals to meet the continuing increase in demand for people with these skills".
