Kids Camps

We run kids camps over the school holiday periods and offer a range of activities depending on the time of year. The camps are designed to teach children how to experience the outdoors with minimum structure and maximum fun, just like we did ourselves when we were young.

In 2021, we will run a Summer camp in Trim.

Trim Summer Camp

Trim is a kayak-only Summer Camp. It will run Tuesday – Friday each week during June, July and August 2021 from 9.30 am – 12.45 pm for 9 – 12 year olds and 13 – 15 year olds.

Each camp will include

  • Level 1 Introduction to Kayaking
  • Paddling techniques
  • Moving water safety
  • No shortage of fun!

Prices: €150 per person per week

Pre-booking is essential and spaces are limited to 15. Select your dates and contact James on 086 734 2585 with a €50 deposit
