Scouts, Guides & Youths


We are so happy to be linked with the Scout & Guide groups within our county, as well as in the rest of Ireland as they continue to educate young people about our natural history and the environment that we all live in. 


*We offer Scouts, Guides & Youth groups a 25% Discount on all our Course options when booking as a group* (T&C)


As of November 2014 separate Backwoods Training Events have taken place on the grounds of Cregg Castle, as well as off site visits to local scout campsites.  We provide specific backwoods training for the adventure skill levels. Courses are generally day courses which run 10am-4pm. They are tailored for Cubs, Scouts, Advanced Scouts/ Ventures and Rovers. Course weekends run x3 times a year.
