School Tours

 

An Adventure West school tour provides so much more than a fun day out for the children. It helps them to grow in confidence and feel a great sense of achievement as they conquer each element of the various activities.

And parents and teachers can rest assured that all this will be done within a controlled and secure environment. (And accompanying adults can also join in the fun, at no cost!)

 

This year we have some exciting new activities added into the mix - see below for suggested school tour packages.

  • STAND-UP PADDLEBOARDING

    Balance and confidence is the key to conquering stand-up paddleboarding - a perfect way to enjoy the Blueway trails at Old Head Beach.

  • GUIDED WOODLAND FORAGING WALK

    Brings the forest alive for the children. They will be amazed by what is literally growing under their feet – lunch is all around!! They will gain invaluable knowledge of local trees, fauna and foraging, along with some natural and cultural history of Old Head Forest and the surrounding area.

  • ARCHERY

    As Robin Hood well knows, traditional archery takes years to master but you can get a good start by learning from the experienced instructors at Westport House. The look of excitement and pride on a child’s face, when they finally hit their target, is priceless. Good aim, dexterity, strength and, more importantly, patience are essential skills that they will gain through this challenge.

  • SNORKELLING

    The perfect way to discover the underwater world of Clew Bay! It’s great fun, easy to learn and an excellent way to build up confidence in the water.
