Forest School themed Summer Camps 2021

Just to let you know I am running two summer camps this summer out of Castletown House, Celbridge, Co. Kildare. The first camp is nearly booked up but there are plenty of places on the August camp!

This summer camp is a Forest Schoolthemed summer camp. This will be run following the ethos of forest school, which is about choice based and child led play, it is not an activity based summer camps, though we will be running lots of different activities over the week, forest school allows space for the children to direct the activities that they want to do, and we will offer different crafts, skills with tools, wanders into Castletown estate among many other activities. Forest School allows children follow their own needs and interests while also connecting to nature in an informal setting.

The dates of the camps are:

Camp 1: Monday 19th July – Thursday 22nd July 2021.

Time: 10.00am to 2pm

Age: From age: 5- to 10-year-olds

Camp 2: Monday 9th August – Thursday 12th August 2021.

Time: 10.00am to 2pm

(Pick one when booking)

Location: The Pinetum (beside Castletown House East Wing), Casltetown House, Celbridge, Co. Kildare

Cost: 140e for the 4 days.

(Our prices have gone up this year due to 50% increased cost of insurance and working with smaller numbers due to COVID, if you have siblings who want to come on the camp, send me an email and I will give you a code for 15% discount for siblings).

The age range is from 5–10-year-olds, (I cannot foresee what the age range will be there maybe lots of 5 and 6 year olds, so make sure your child knows this if they are in the older age category, it just depends on who books in!)
