The Big Dig Archaeology Camp

For children who like to get their hands dirty!!Description:

Our camps provide a new and fascinating alternative to sports-themed camps and other school-break activities for children aged between 7 and 12 years old. If your child is a curious explorer with a thirst for knowledge about their past, why not let them try the School of Irish Archaeology? Our camps are run all year round, and they introduce children to the mysteries and adventures of our past in a fun, practical and hands-on way.

We use an ‘Indiana Jones’ approach to ensure your children get lots of time outdoors. As well as taking part in excavations and exciting treasure hunts, children will also get to visit important archaeological and historical sites such as Newgrange, Glendalough, Trim Castle and Dublin Castle, to name a few.
