Kayak/Canoe Camp is a week long skills programme whereby young people explore Kinsale Harbour and the surrounding areas in kayaks and canoes . Students will learn a variety of skills, gain confidence in their own ability, knowledge of the environment and have an amazing time along the way. At the end of the course, having successfully completed certain skills, participants will be presented with Canoeing Ireland certificates .

Explore Kinsale is an exciting summer course designed around fun, discovery and activity in the great outdoors. Develop new skills in kayaking, archery, body boarding, canoeing, orienteering, team building challenges, camp craft and more! Participants will be introduced to a wide variety of activities and environments, with the opportunity to broaden their horizons and build new skills. 

Explore Kinsale is a step up from the younger camps. Girls and boys will find themselves faced with more challenging activities to suit their age such as learning to helm a sailing boat, surf a wave, go for a journey in a kayak and build a Leave No Trace camp fire. Learn different skills through games and activities and have a great week doing it.
