Lunch is not provided. Participants need to bring a packed lunch and waterbottle. We do have water refill stations around the centre.

Does my child need to be a swimmer?

Swimming is not a necessity however we do recommend a confidence around the water. Non-swimmers will be give a life-jacket by their instructor, those who can swim will be given a buoyancy aid.

Do the Instructors have qualifications?

All our instructors are Irish Sailing qualified and have also completed Garda Vetting, Safeguarding and a First Aid Course. All of our instructors have completed a 2-3 year training programme (Panel) in the centre so all known personally to us - your children are in good hands.

Can my child be in a group with their friends?

If they are the same age group you can request for your child to be with the same instructor as their friend at the booking process. You can also request this on the Monday morning of camp.

Do you have Lost Property?

Lost property will be held on site for 1 week following the Summer Camp date. If participants have misplaced clothing in the centre, please contact us promptly. If we are able to find the item we will label it and keep it here for collection within 7 days.

All Summer Camp participants will be issued with a wetsuit on Monday morning for the week so will be taking it home with them each day. The wetsuit will be returned and signed in after the final session on Friday afternoon - remember to bring bag to take wetsuit home in. 

Use of Mobile Phones is not allowed during Summer Camps and we do not have a facility for safe keeping, so we recommend that phones are left at home. If you need to contact your child please call the office and we shall deliver the message. 

Checklick is an online assessment tool that Irish Sailing use so we can monitor the participants as they progress through the levels. Your child should already account and an email would have been sent to you with your log in details. The standard password set is the participants birthday yearmonthdate. Their account will be updated on a Wednesday and Friday so you can track their progress. If you have any issues logging in please let us know.
