Summer Camps

Each year, Ardentinny Centre organises a week full of fun activities during the summer holidays.

The camp brings people together from all over the country for a week of fun and physical activity in the great outdoors. Life-long friendships will be forged, new skills developed and adventures enjoyed – just what school holidays should be about! Our fully qualified staff will deliver a full and varied programme in a friendly, safe and supportive environment.
