The setting in a beautiful oak, larch, ash and hazel woodland by the River Slaney.


How did our ancestors settle the forests and riversides of Ireland? What might we need for survival in our natural habitat?



We will have lots of fun exploring the land, foraging for food and shelter, good shelter spots and animal tracking.


We will practice primitive fire making skills and make tools we can use every day.

We will learn how to set up camp, cook camp food and even a few campfire songs!
