The long tradition of residential summer courses provided by the Education Authority’s Youth Service at Gortatole Outdoor Learning Centre in Florencecourt, Co Fermanagh, continues this year during July and August 2019.
Our range of courses are aimed at young people aged between 11-20 years and provide programmes which not only entertain but also offer opportunities for both personal and social development, through a wide variety of healthy outdoor adventurous activities.
All of our exciting activities are delivered in a safe and friendly but fun environment, and are all designed to stimulate and challenge your children and young adults. Activities on offer include canoeing, caving, orienteering and hillwalking. Every day is action packed and designed to ensure your child is safely and enjoyably kept busy from morning till night. Camping is a feature of all these courses.
Informal games and other social activities are available for young people who take part in the summer courses.
These activities are supervised by appropriately qualified and experienced staff supported by trained and experienced voluntary instructors. All of our summer staff have a passion for outdoor sports and a bigger passion for passing this onto young people.
Gortatole Outdoor Learning Centre nestles in the beautiful feature-full landscape of the UNESCO Marble Arch Caves Global Geo-park. It has unmatched activity facilities on its 65 acre site with a waterfront jetty onto Lower Lough MacNean; also on site is a high and low ropes course, a state-of-the-art indoor climbing wall and sports hall.
