Summer Camps 2019 - Beginning 1st July for 7 weeks
Water Sports Activity Camps Skerries.
The Outdoor Dublin kids and teens camps have proven to be hugely successful since we started. Throughout the week, participants will be introduced to Stand Up Paddling, Monster Stand Up Paddling, Kayaking, Swimming, Beach Games, Pier Jumping, and sometimes Surfing if there's waves. We ensure they get the opportunity to learn these exciting activities in a safe and fun environment.We want them to leave at the end of the week with confidence and awareness of the Sea environment, so that they understand the dangers involved and make informed decisions if and when they take to
the water themselves.
When are they running?
Our camps run throughout July and August from Monday to Friday. There is a morning camp and an afternoon camp each week.
Times for camps:
0930 - 1230 For 8 - 11 Year Olds
