Your day will begin with a one hour interactive workshop, where you’ll learn fun facts about how the Irish have explored sea, land, air and space, and meet a whole host of famous figures. Then, comes the difference – inspired by what we’ve discovered, we’ll use our ingenuity and creativity to create our own exhibitions!
Using your imagination alongside our how-to guide, you’ll put your creative prowess to the test to design a mini-exhibition at EPIC, featuring all your favourite parts from the workshops, such as hot air balloons, space shuttles and more. On the final day, we’ll arrange our exhibitions, inviting friends and family to see our hard work come alive before their eyes!
Designed to get kids engaging with history in a fun, interactive way where they also learn life skills, we’ll craft planes alongside aviator Lady Mary Heath, make camp with jungle explorer Cynthia Longfield, dive into the ocean with John Phillip Holland, create cars with Henry Ford, set sail with William Lamport, among much more!

Important: This camp is suitable for children of approximately 7 – 12 years old. Parents and guardians are not required to stay for the duration of the camp, although it would be lovely if they could visit for a short time on the last day of the camp for the ‘exhibition launch’ to see the children’s finished pieces. This is an art and crafts based camp, therefore when signing up, it is noted that participants should enjoy these activities. Children will be asked to complete a number of tasks using art materials, so should wear old clothes and be prepared to get messy!
Each ticket covers 1 child for 5 days.
