Orienteering | Archery | Team Challenges
Orienteering is an excellent activity to develop both fitness and navigation skills.
Learn to navigate while racing around a course to find controls and return in the fastest time. Orienteering is a great activity for schools and compliments a number of curricular areas such as numeracy, literacy, geography and PE. We provide Orienteering here at our Centre grounds and in local forests but can also run sessions at any suitable park or forest area around the county.
Kilfinane OETC can provide training for teachers at Primary and Post primary level and help your school to deliver Orienteering as part of the new Junior Cycle PE syllabus. Each year we run the LCETB schools Orienteering competition at Curraghchase for 1st and 2nd year students.
Our centre based Orienteering courses are ideal for Beginner, School and Youth Groups. Participants get the opportunity to work together as a team using map reading skills to locate all the control points.
Our local Forestry provides the perfect location for a more challenging Orienteering experience. These Orienteering courses are ideally suited to Youth and Adult Groups.
Archery is a great activity for hand-eye coordination and is a hit with groups of all ages. Test your skills at our onsite range, which includes a covered seating area for your comfort. Our onsite range is accessible for all.
Our Team Challenges use exciting challenges to focus on team issues such as teamwork, leadership, group decision making, communication, initiative & problem solving. Some of these challenges are specifically designed activities whilst other programmes use outdoor activities such as raft-building, canadian canoes ( for 2/3 paddlers) or an activity challenge to create a team building experience
Team Challenges are suitable for groups of all ages from Schools to Corporate groups.
