It’s that time of year again. Teachers are searching for the best school tour destinations. With over 80 acres of beautiful woodland, two lakes, a river and imaginative indoor spaces Castlecomer Discovery Park has all you need!
How about testing your balance, agility and resilience on one of our ropes courses or releasing your inner Robin Hood with Archery? Problem-solve and work as a group with Team Challenges or enjoy Boating games on the picturesque Upper Lake.
Can you create your own map made entirely of natural materials or be the best map-reader on a woodland Orienteering trail? Maybe you’d prefer to become a Water Scientist or a Bug Detective and explore the water and woodland environments. Learn about our trees, flowers and wildlife on a Nature Trail. Go back in time to discover ancient fossils and coal-mining.
“We believe in developing a sense of nature connection through outdoor play, learning and adventure in our woodland environment. Our action-packed, student-centred school tours are ideal for all Primary classes. This year we are delighted to introduce two new activities with the energetic Bouncing Net and Creative Map-Making. The emphasis is always on fun, exploration and discovery.” – Nichola Salmon, Education Officer.
