  • Adventure weeks are our flagship camps and are aimed at the 12 to 16 year age group. The week is broken between a variety of adventure activities including; white water kayaking, surfing, climbing, caving and our highly popular Coasteering. It’s a week not to be missed!
  • Expedition camps are aimed at the 14 to 18 year age group and require some previous experience such as the Adventure programme. This programme consists of an overnight camping expedition which is planned by the students and instructors. Last years expedition brought us on an overnight adventure to Wicklow where we traversed to St Kevins Bed in Glendalough and spent the next day Canyoning on the Avonmore River. An adventure not to be missed!
