Airfield Estates Summer Camps are packed with exciting adventures! Each camp will be hands-on with the campers growing, eating, creating, exploring and investigating Airfields fields, farm and gardens. Spending their days hunting for mini-beasts, exploring what summer means for the farm, discovering what to plant for an edible garden will all form part of a very active and exciting week of getting their hands dirty and their boots muddy and creating art works.

A little info about the activity / event:

School tours run from 1000 - 1400 daily and include all aspects of the Estate. This means the children will be hands-on in the gardens, house, farm and in nature. They will get to experience the milking of our cows, meet all the animals on the farm, go on bug hunts, do some pond dipping and plant their own seeds to take home with them, as well as learn about the life of the Overend Family that used to own the estate and play on the zip-wire, climbing frames and balance beams in the forest. It’s a packed day, but a great experience for all involved. We keep our groups small with 15 - 20 children per leader in order to ensure everyone gets a go of, and sees everything.

What it costs (from):

€12 per child with teachers free in a ratio of 1: 10 children for primary (SNA's are also free).
