school & youth day adventure

At Lough Allen Adventure Centre, we’re specialists in fun, outdoor adventure for all ages and groups. 

We train the next generation of outdoor adventure specialists giving you the peace of mind that we strictly adhere to best practices in safety and welfare. Our School and Youth Day Packages are tailored for both primary/secondary school classes and all youth groups.

This isn’t just our day job – it’s our mission. We are passionate about getting kids and adults out and about, back to basics and improving all our mental health and well-being.

The focus for the day is on exciting  and enjoyable activities with lots of bonding opportunities. It shakes up their “normal” routine to enjoy a day in nature doing things they don’t get the opportunity to do at home. 

Our special team building exercises and games are tailored to the needs of each group, allowing them to bond with classmates they might not hang out with on a typical day at school. 

We offer two standard packages and we can customise packages to suit individual groups. Have a look at our other activities to see if there’s any other skills you’d like your group to enjoy. 


Suitable for ages – 8 to 16 years.

Groups are tailored for all levels of ability. 


Low instructor-to-participant ratio. 

Garda vetted, registered instructors.


Our instructors encourage a love of the outdoors in kids and are trained to care for, inspire and help them have fun in a safe and secure environment. 


School / Youth activities typically start at 10am and finish at 3pm.

Island Expedition with Bushcraft and Survival Skills

We paddle to our local O’Connor’s Island on Canadian canoes. 

Staying on the island, we introduce the group to basic bushcraft and survival skills. Participants learn to light a fire with flint and steel. 

We guide and help them as they build their own shelters.

Throughout the sessions, we include various team building exercises and skills. 

This is our most popular package – not least because we have the best lunch break ever!

We take time to sit by the campfire, toast marshmallows and drink hot chocolate. 

We can even provide burgers and sausages that we cook over the campfire ourselves. (This is an additional cost).

Land-based Team Games with Water Activities

This is the ideal experience for water lovers!

Spend the day learning skills such as kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding and taking part in different water activities. 

Our school and youth group adventurers love spending the day doing something that they don’t usually have the opportunity to do at home!

We take regular breaks to participate in fun team bonding games.
