Announcing Fota Wildlife Park Summer Camps 2017

Announcing Fota Wildlife Park Summer Camps 2017

It’s not too early to plan for the summer, Fota Wildlife Park's week-long Summer Camps are now open for bookings and promise to provide a unique and unforgettable time for children aged between 5 – 12 years old. Each week-long camp offers safari trails, “animal” sports and movement, arts and crafts and an environmental fun-day which is sponsored by Cork County Council. The camps run from the 24th – 28th July and the 31st July - 4th August.

Aside from being exciting, great fun and getting out into the great outdoors, Fota Wildlife Park Summer Camps have been developed with the aim of engendering a respect for the natural world. Each day of the camp has a different concept, varying from arts and crafts to movement, ecology and the environment, while a play approach to learning is a key element to ensuring that children enjoy themselves while attaining new skills and knowledge. Through years of valuable experience and programme revision, the Education Department have carefully put together a selection of activities which address each participants' requirements and interests. All the activities on offer are based around the theme of the natural world and cover a range of areas including nature studies and the physical sciences.

Summer camps details are as follows:

• Cost €115 per child per week.
• Suitable for children aged 5 -12 years’ old
• Location: Education Complex at Fota Wildlife Park
