Camps

 

Kid's Morning Camp

Derrynane Seasports has been running this hugely popular camp for 12 years!  It just gets better and better.  Kids Morning Camp is a basic introduction to Water Sports through the medium of fun and play.

 

Children will be Canoeing, Human Sailing, SUPing (Stand Up Paddle Boarding), Snorkelling, Body Boarding and Surfing (if the weather conditions allow). There are a variety of fun water based games intertwined with the activities and every year we introduce one or two new and novel sports and games.  We also do things as simple as jumping off the pier (when the tide is in of course!) and crab and razor fish fishing.

 

We stop for hot chocolate and biscuits at 11am for a quick 10 minute break to catch our breath and then we are off again till lunchtime!

 

On our last day we have a BBQ together and hand out the well-deserved certificates to our little friends.

 

 

Pirate Camp

Our most popular camp of all. It is such fun that all our Instructors fight to be part of it, we are all “Kiddy Pirates” at heart!  All our Pirates are asked to be at the centre 10 minutes before camp begins, to give us a chance to meet Parents and change the “little people” in to their wetsuits and lifejackets and Pirate regalia.

 

Activities include –

• Canoeing (the “captains” will canoe the Pirates around to the various secret coves! Following a series of clues left at each spot)

• Body Boarding in the large rock pools at “Secret Beach”.

• Snorkelling within the Pirates depth at “Pirates Cove”

• Sandcastle competitions

• Various watery based games which are great fun!

 

Every day we stop for a picnic and then on the last day after finding all the clues we hunt for the “Pirate Treasure” and hopefully find it!

 

 

Teen Camp

We started Teen Camp in 2010 and it gains in popularity every year.  It is a great way to meet other Teens and have a bit of craic, whilst learning new sports or catching up and improving on old ones.

 

Activities will include –

• Sailing

• Windsurfing

• Canoeing/Kayaking – We canoe/kayak around the harbour and to certain venues but we also play games with the canoes/kayaks

• SUP’s - Stand up Paddle Boards

• Snorkelling- An exciting look at the under sea world

• Surfing/Body Boarding _- if the surf is up

• Archery

 

Each year we introduce one or more new activities, this year we are happy to bring raft building to the camp.  One of the oldest and most popular activity is the “timeless” jumping of the pier when we have full tide, where everyone gets involved, even the instructors!

 

Whether you are a beginner or more experienced we can accommodate your needs.

 

On the last day we finish with the “Royal Rumble” which is a race involving all the activities you have learned during the last 4 days, and this year it will include your raft you Team has made.

 

We finish off with an open BBQ on Lamb Island and receive your well-earned Certs.

 

 

Our Instructors

All our instructors are police vetted and handpicked for their experience in their field and with children.  They are well qualified and full of fun and many of them with us for several years. There is one instructor per every 4-5 children and a first aider is always on standby.

 

All children must wear the life jackets that we provide from the time they arrive until they leave at all times.  We provide wet suits but if you have your own you are welcome to wear it.

 

It's important kids and teens alike understand their instructor is in charge at all times.

 

We are an all inclusive business and embrace all children. For the safety and well being of your child we absolutely need to know of any special requirements, behavioural issues or disabilities so that we can cater and brief our Team accordingly.
