Summer Scheme 2023


Experience the Adventure this Easter!

Lorne’s Summer Scheme welcomes boys and girls aged 7 - 14 to join in the fun at Lorne Estate in Holywood, County Down.

The programme will include outdoor activities such as Zipline, Climbing, Archery, Gorge Walking, Bushcraft, Bungee Trampoline, Sports, Team Activities, Gladiator Challenge, Leap of Faith, High All Aboard Beach Activities, Grass Sledging & Craft.

This year the Summer Scheme will be running on the following dates:

Monday 24th July - Friday 28th July

Monday 31st July - Friday 4th August

Monday 7th August - Friday 11th August

Times: 9am - 4.00pm (drop off at 8.45am available at no extra charge)

Cost for the scheme is £125 for each full week per participant. Limited day places available at £30 per day.

Participants should wear suitable clothing for outdoor activities such as trainers, tracksuit bottoms, a t-shirt and fleece. If the weather is particularly good (fingers crossed!) participants may wear shorts but these should be knee length to allow for the harnesses required for many of the activities.

Participants should also bring a bag containing: a packed lunch with a refillable water bottle, a waterproof jacket, warm layers (or sunscreen and a sun hat), a full change of clothes including shoes, a towel, washbag and any medication required. A small tuck shop will be running at lunch time and participants are welcome to bring up to £2 if they wish.
