ABOUT PROACTIVE KIDS CAMPS

ProActive Kids camps was setup in 2013 by Chris Lang, a year before he co-built and opened Squirrel's Scramble. It was designed as a camp to be solely outdoors, full of action and adventure, with unique activities that stood out from the rest. Our aim is to inspire a love of the great outdoors for kids, for them to have fun and to challenge their limits not limit their challenges in a kind and encouraging manner. ProActive Kids hit the ground running with huge popularity among families from all localities far, wide and abroad. Squirrel's Scramble turned out to be the perfect addition to the camp to make it one of the best and most unique kids camps in Ireland which keeps the kids happy, challeneged, entertained and coming back year after year.

INFORMATION

Dropping off times are from 9.30am to 10.00am, collection times are 2.30pm to 3.00pm, drop off is located at the Squirrel's Scramble check in desk. You will find us at the Killruddery House and Gardens overflow car park, down from the farmer's market location.

The drop off and pick up times are supervised only. These times are provided for the convenience of busy parents to allow for late arrival.

Activities start at 10.00am, due to the big variety of activities we do, and the large size of Killruddery grounds we use many different locations. Arrival after 10.00am could result in your child missing out, as we may have already left the meeting point. If late, you can call Chris on 086 450 6626 to find out where everyone is.

The camp is for ages 8 to 15 years. There will be 15 kids in total. There will be short breaks between activities to eat snacks and freshen up, campers are free to use Killruddery's toilet facilities. 

The week will give an insight into lots of different kinds of sports and activities, all of which will be instructed by our friendly Squirrel's Scramble instructors, all staff are highly experienced, are all qualified first aid responders and are fully qualifed members of ERCA (European Ropes Course Assiociation).

We will ask that the children bring their own masks and wear them when we ask. We will have spare masks if they forget theirs. We will be providing hand sanitiser and ensuring that it is used appropriately, the children are welcome to bring their own small bottle if they do not wish to use ours. We will sterilise all equipment after use.
