Kids Camps: Play & Learn Education & Tours

Activity Camps have been part of life at Fota since 1995 and are an educational and active way for children between the ages of 5-12 to learn and have fun during their Easter and Summer holidays.




Best suited to young people with an interest in the natural world, Fota's kids camps cover a range of areas including ecology, nature studies and the physical sciences. Supervisors and demonstrators are a mixture of undergraduate students and qualified primary school teachers, with one member of staff to every eight children. 

Each day of the week-long camp has a different concept, varying from Arts & Crafts to Movement, Ecology and the Environment, while our Play approach to Learning is key element to ensuring that children enjoy themselves while attaining new skills and knowledge.
