Summer Camps

Shielbaggan OETC offers a number of different summer camps. These generally take place during July and August and are designed for young people between the age of 8 and 18. Summer camps run over five days, from Monday to Friday, 09:30am to 4:00pm. Your child can attend for one day or all five. Over the five days the young people will get the opportunity to try all the activities that we offer at Shielbaggan.

The programmes are weather dependant, meaning that the activities may change depending on the weather conditions. summer camps at shielbaggan oec
