Primary School

Let us design a day out for your students!

Our primary objective is to get young people out to experience and enjoy the wonders of nature first-hand. Our aim is to incite a love for the natural world, an enthusiasm to learn about the environment and their place within it, as well as to build the basic skills that will help them throughout their lives.

Programme One: Our specifically designed educations sessions are pupil focused with a flexible structure to allow young minds to expand and for questions to be asked.  At present, we cater for classes from first class to sixth class and can cover a variety of specific topics to meet the NCCA Curriculum.

There are several habitats for youngsters to learn about – our waterways, marshlands, farmlands and our woodlands. Each area is easily accessible from our education resource centre on short walks along designated paths.

Programme Two: We also host a specific woodlands bushcraft session which allows for free play in nature, learn new ‘living in nature’ skills, and connect with each other through fun nature games.

Please bear in mind that the sessions are strongly outdoor orientated so clothing and footwear that is appropriate for the weather conditions and season are an absolute must for all participants.

The key aim of for our Woodlands School is to provide a supportive environment for young people to engage in, incite a love for the natural world, an enthusiasm to learn about their environment and their place within it, as well as to build the basic skills that will help them throughout their lives.

This is a person-centred approach to learning and we encourage you, the teacher, to engage with your pupils before your visit and to get in touch with us to see how we can support their learning. We can offer a range of short topic studies to provide opportunities for science, maths, geography and even arts and creativity in an outdoor and practical setting.

We have a very open view of biodiversity education and aim above all to engender and embrace a love of our natural heritage.

Cavan Adventure Centre has the privilege of being set within the UNESCO Global Geopark which provides protection for the wonderful habitats and amazing wildlife here.
