Our campcraft and survival skills programmes are increasingly popular each year.
These programmes designed specifically for Secondary School & Youth Groups also fulfil the requirements of the Junior Cycle PE and Leaving Cert. Applied syllabus.
Our campcraft programmes teach students all the skills needed for remote camping and include tent pitching, equipment, building temporary shelters and emergency shelters from natural materials, camp safety, cooking outdoors and the ‘Leave no Trace’ principles.
Survival skills programmes take these skills to the next level where students complete a self sufficient two-day overnight survival expedition on foot with minimal equipment and cook meals on open fires lit without using matches !
The level of challenge associated with these programmes helps to develop good teamwork and initiative skills.
