To ensure the highest level of safety our instructor to student ratio is 1:15 for field studies and 1:10 for adventure activities. Take a beautiful hike to the top of Seefin Mountain behind us to visit a 5000 year old megalithic tomb, and a great view over Dublin, before returning to base for lunch, and then a visit to the woods. This is where the students learn to build shelters from branches and debris, orienteer to find food that has been stashed for them, and bring it back to cook over a camp fire that they will build. It’s basic survival skills and a really good learning and fun time in the woods.
We can cater for large groups quite comfortably so give us a call to discuss your requirements.
This one-day programme operates within school hours; all activities are onsite and provide you with a hassle-free day. Overnight accommodation
is available if you would like to make a two-day event of it or even longer … a perfect excursion for Transition Year bonding
