The camp runs daily from 10am -3pm and a charge of €50 applies per child.  A non-refundable deposit of €25 is required.  Participants must bring lunch and as some activities are messy old clothes should be worn.  Weather permitting lots of activities will take place outdoors so appropriate sun/rain gear is required.
