Our Young Explorers
Our Eco-Adventure activity takes place in the Cladagh Glen Nature Reserve, right on the doorstep of the Marble Arch Caves Visitor Centre. The woodland of the Cladagh Glen provides a short looped circular route of gravel and concrete paths, ideal for young explorers to make independent discoveries and venture comfortably within the landscape. The woodland is a designated Nature Reserve due to the important plants and animals that live there and is the ideal location to learn about this unique and interesting place which lays over the Marble Arch Caves.
This outdoor activity provides a careful balance of structured activities alongside time and space for your own exploration. On registration you will receive your Eco-Adventure Map, your quest with the help of our trail finder clues is to use the map to uncover the Mini-Beast Camp, here you will undertake a mini-beast scavenger hunt led by our activity leader, finding creepy crawlies and learning more about the unique insects that call this woodland their home. Your adventure continues using your adventure map again to navigate deeper through the woodland to your next station the Animal Hide and Seek Tent, here your young explorers will learn from our activity leader about the wild animals that live in these woodlands, recognise their footprints and discover how to spot them in their natural environment
The activities will provide a multitude of hands on learning opportunities within a natural outdoor environment for all the family as well as being fun, exciting, and engaging. The session is suitable for children 5-12 years old, though older and younger siblings are welcome. Please note, parents will need to stay with their children for the duration of the activity. When the activity is over you can continue on a woodland walk or why not pre-book onto a Guided Cave Tour of the Marble Arch Caves and make a day of it!
