Children join us this summer for the ever popular Burren Wild Child Summer Camp….
When: 15th-17th August 10am-2pm
Where: Carron, Co.Clare
Who: 6-12 years olds (1st-6th class only)
Burren Wild Child Summer Camp is back! What better place to spend your summer days than running around outdoors! This will be a fun and interactive 3 days for children where they will learn to explore the natural, cultural and built heritage of the Burren’s hedgerows, pavements and monuments through games, scavenger hunts, treasure hunts, fossil finding, & much more!! The aim of this event is to get children inspired by the Burren, the magic it holds and to foster a sense of pride and responsibility in this incredible landscape.
The event is run by Burrenbeo Trust, a local landscape charity that focuses on raising awareness of this fantastic landscape and connecting people of all age groups to it. Having your child participate on Burren Wild Child means you will be making a meaningful contribution and worthwhile investment into the future conservation of the environment through enthusing its future custodians.
The Burren Wild Child Summer Camp is running from the 15th-17th August 2017 out of the Carron Field station between 10am-2pm each day.
It is for 6-12 year olds (1st-6th class only).
