School Programmes


Baltinglass OETC provides a diverse selection of Programmes for Post Primary Schools.

Outdoor Education & and Adventure Sports activities offer endless opportunities for learning outside the classroom. Our Outdoor Education Courses delivered by experienced tutors use outdoor activity & adventure sports to present participants with new and challenging experiences that will help them develop life skills.

Baltinglass Outdoor Education & Training Centre specialise in the provision of educational outdoor activity courses for secondary school students and primary school pupils.

We use outdoor activities and challenging situations to develop essential life skills such as teamwork, decision making, confidence and self-esteem. Additionally, the sports themselves offer opportunities to learn or improve navigation skills, co-ordination, fitness, water confidence and sport specific skills among others.

Our Programmes aim to:

  • Promote wellbeing
  • Build confidence and self-esteem through achievement of challenges and the development of new skills
  • Develop life skills such as teamwork, initiative, respect & leadership
  • Increase awareness and understanding of the natural environment
  • Learn adventure sports skills such as Kayaking, Orienteering or Climbing
