An Creagan
Making Bean Supports at An Creagan

Five times in An Creagan, and it just gets better. As part of the Not Back To School Celebrations we will be having autumnal fun in the Wild Woods. There will be marshmallows to toast, the normal chaos and mess to create and plenty of opportunity to learn and play together.

We will go ahead in all weathers, bring appropriate gear and something to change into for the way home.

Wild Times in the Wild Woods, with optional bog walk

Tue, 21/07/2015 - 11:00am - 3:00pm
An Creagan
Round the fire at An Creagan

The fourth meeting of the dusty-bottomed children of the wild woods.  We love this place and always have a wonderful time there.  There will be all the fun of the wild woods, including a fire and marshmallows to toast, ponds to dip, banks to dig and climb, trees to paint and the wonderful tree house.  

Peter has also offered to take those who are interested on a short hike to see the forest and bog, which will be wonderful at that time of year - those who would rather stay in the wild woods are welcome to do so (we can organise child care for families who have a difference of opinion between us).

We will go ahead in ALL WEATHERS, mud is just another sort of fun.  Bring wet weather gear, sun cream and all other options!

Mayo Bushcraft Course

Fri, 03/07/2015 (All day) - Sun, 05/07/2015 (All day)

Bushcraft family home ed camp happening again. Friday - Sunday 3-5 July, in Mayo, food included, camping facilities all provided, beautiful 10 person tepees. Places were first offered to those who attended the first bushcraft a few months ago, and some cannot go because they have other arrangements so there are 6 places on offer. Children over 7, with accompanying adult. Some actitives are for the adults and children, and some are for children with adults more in supporting role, and a few just for children. There was a constant camp fire and it was great to have that time to chat and drink lotsa tea, while the kids played nearby in the forest. There is a lovely rhythm to Bushcraft weekend, there is quite a number of organised activities and then also time in between to just chill, as Colm from Bushcraft feels that it is important to slow down, and not pack too much in, to feel the rhythm of the nature. Just six places, price €50 per person. message - a deposit of €30 per person to book your place.
