Sea Explorers 4-6 Years


Course: Sea Explorers 4-6 Years

Duration: Monday to Friday (Tuesday to Friday on Bank Holiday Weeks)

Location: Dun Laoghaire

Cost: €125 per week, €99 (4 Day camp 1st week in August)

Sea Explorers spend their day undertaking a wide variety of activities based around the water in Dun Laoghaire Harbour and Seapoint Beach. The day begins at our Clubhouse on the West Pier in Dun Laoghaire. After a short talk about the marine ecosystem students head to the outdoor classroom Seapoint Beach to explore the sea shore looking for all the marine wildlife. There’s a different focus each day so there’s always something new to explore.

Exploring the historic harbour and fun and games keep everyone entertained. The highlight of the day is the trip around the harbour on our Pirate Launches, where the landmarks of Dun Laoghaire harbour are explored aboard our launch boats flying our Pirate Flag – Argh!

What parents think of the programme

“The course was interesting, exciting and my kids felt really safe in friendly surroundings. Thank you”
