All ‘camp’ courses at Gartan OEC, whether residential or non residential, aim to provide a fun, exciting, packed week of adrenalin filled activity.
Our adventure based courses offer the opportunity to learn new skills or develop existing skills, meet new friends, learn about and appreciate our environment. Above all, adventure campers will learn about themselves as they take on new challenges in beautiful and unfamiliar settings.
Some courses provide National Governing Body skill awards (eg Irish Sailing Association level 1, 2 or 3 in both sailing and windsurfing).
Many of our past students have developed real and lasting interest in various adventure sports, an interest that will stay with them for life. Young windsurfing students, who have learned and developed their skills on Gartan camp courses, are now the proud holders of National Windsurfing Youth titles. Gartan continues to support them as they compete at home and further afield.
All camps are run by our highly qualified and experienced staff, each of whom has a real ‘grá’for the outdoors, for adventure and for the environment that is our beautiful playground.
