Our activities are instructor lead so each individual sessions is catered to your groups abilities and needs. We have a large capacity on both sites (mallow 200+) (Coachford 180+) so there never should be an issue dealing with any sized group. We make a custom itinerary for each group and have 1, 2 and 3 activity packages that can be selcted from. 


  1. Full supervised 
  2. Choice of Activities 
  3. Lead instructors 
  4. More time than public sessions 
  5. Ice breakers & team games where time allows


Our Youth packages are instructor lead from the start and offers more than time than the public sessions to ensure that all your group gets the full attention and experience on your chosen activities. They are fully supervised meaning that you can drop and go and our instructors will supervise from drop off to pick up. This isnt the case on any public sessions.

Scouts Camping Mallow & Coachford 

On both sites we have areas where we can allow camping for scout groups. This are basic areas where the groups will need to come prepared and pitch their camp. In mallow we will have showers and toilets 5 minutes walk away from the campsite. It is a large playing field area and is flat and level and is ideal as you can drive cars and supply vans onto the pitch to service the camp. In mallow we can have multiple troops on site at one time, please factor this into your child safety proceedures. Troop leaders will be asked to consult with one another prior to arrival. 


In Coachford we have a more wild camping area that is located around our wilderness village. You will need to cross the bridge to gain access and the toliet facilties will be a 10 minute walk away. There is a beuatiful stream that runs around the campsite and there is outdoor shelters available for use. 


  • 1 Night Camping €10 per camper 

  • 2 night camping €10 per camper 

  • 3 nights or more €7 per camper

Day Trip 

  • Swimwear & Towel

    • We will provide all the wetsuits and safety equipment. Swimming togs are to be worn under these. If you have your own wetsuit you are welcome to bring it along. 
  • Plastic Bag or Dry bag

    • You will more than likely have a lot of wet clothes so these are handy when packing. 
  • Wet shoes or Old Shoes

    • For kayaking and raft building you will need to wear some form of footwear in the water. For all other water activities, you will have to walk with wetsuits on so shoes/ flip flops are vital. 
  • Warm Outdoor Clothing

    • We are an outdoor activity centre. If it is raining we will still operate, we have a sheltered site that nothing short of a red weather warning stops us. It is your responsibility to have appropriate outdoor clothing. If nothing else at bringing a spare pair of clothes.
  • Rainproof outer layer 

    • Probably the most important part of all. You can pick up cheap ponchos in any supermarket outdoor store. It will make your experience so much better if it's raining. (Or at a minimum a spare pair of clothing that can act as an extra layer) 
  • Big packed lunch                                         

    • On a full day, you will be outside for over 6.5 hours doing several active experiences. Trust us you WILL be hungry. We have a small cafe on site that has snacks available. 
  • Refillable water bottle

    • We have a water fountain on site that you can refill your water bottle in between sessions.
  • € coins for the tuck shop

    • Our hot chocolates are famous!! We will also have our Lets Eat Takeaway cafe working on some days. Check with us in advance or pre book hot meals for the whole group.  
  • Hat/Gloves for colder months                                       

    • A woolly hat makes a huge difference in the shoulder seasons March/ April / September / October 
  • Waterproof sunblock 

    • Even on a cloudy day, this prevents wind burn. We can't overstate how important this is at all times of the year regardless of what the weather forecast says.
