This exhilarating programme takes place during Easter, Summer, Halloween and Christmas school holiday periods, goes from strength to strength every year with a five day multi-activity camp for children of 4 years to 13 years and a separate swim skills programme for levels 1 to 8 of the Swim Ireland Learn to Swim syllabus, for children who are aged 5 and over. The Multi-activity programme incorporates a diverse range of exciting indoor and outdoor activities which include a huge variety of fun games, all the sports such as basketball, badminton, soccer and athletics, skills and drills, arts and crafts, our NEW INFLATABLE CLIMBING WALL, treasure hunts and parachute games, dodge-ball, swimming and uni-hoc, junior aerobics and dance routines and of course bouncy castle & giant inflatable obstacle course. The swim skills programme is a thirty minute swimming lesson based on Swim Ireland's Learn to Swim syllabus.
In September 2020 we introduced our four week Children's Swim Skills Camps, which provide the perfect opportunity to help children maintain progress while waiting for the return of our Group Lessons programme. Open to everyone, you do not need to be attending our Group Lessons programme to take part. Swim Skills Camps have been postponed under Level 3 Government restrictions.
