St. Colman’s Community College
“We took our TY students (in 4 separate class groups) to Fota Island Adventure Centre in late September 2020. Terry, Ken and staff organised a series of activities that were challenging, enjoyable and but most importantly fun in these difficult times. Our TYs relished their time in the outdoors where they had to demonstrate their ability to work as part of a team and individually; building camps, learning how to make a fire, toasting marshmallows, archery and the demands of the obstacle course.
The feedback from our students was very positive and in particular they referenced Terry’s “tough love” approach which worked so well with this age group. The set up in the camp was very safe with every effort made to meet and surpass current Covid 19 guidelines.This was our first time visiting Fota Island Adventure but it will most definitely be part of our TY calendar of events in the future. ”

School Tours

We have moved our school tours from Spike Island to Fota Island to meet the growing demand. Our new, purpose built facilities cater for larger class size and adds more activities while retaining the “Terry & Ken” experience. Our school package runs for four and half hours, where the pupils spend their time running through the obstacle course, playing Kombat archery, enjoying bush-craft, survival skills and find the sniper.

Transition Year

We have the ultimate in transition year programmes. It is obviously great fun, obstacle course, survival, bush-craft, shelter building and Kombat Archery, but its true purpose is to build bonds between the students at the start of the TY year. It creates shared experiences and a strong sense of team, from the onset. The TY package runs for four and half hours and can be tailored to include Gaisce awards, orienteering and over nights.

Scout Days

With the Fota Island campsite only around the corner from us, we have a full activity programme available. Our basic programme includes obstacle course, survival, bushcraft, shelter building and Kombat Archery, which runs for four and a half hours. We have additional packages that include orienteering depending on your groups requirements.

“Thank you and all the gang at Fota Adventure and the Titanic Experience fr a truly memorable day. The boys had a wonderful time and we really appreciated the care and attention the children received, particularly the inclusion in such a caring way of those with additional needs. Please pass on our thanks to Terry, Ken and all as the boys really had a ten out of ten experience. It was a wonderful tour and we look forward to returning next year.”

“The students enjoyed every second of their adventure. The positive effects the experience has had on their relationships with each other, team work, communication and problem solving skills are very clear to see. Ken and Terry run a tight ship! It is a very professional, safe and fun program. And to be honest from a teachers point of view very relaxing and enjoyable! I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a challenging and exciting trip for TY students.”

“We took our foroige group to the Island on June 14th 2014, not knowing what to expect! They totally loved the experience. And all say they will come back again. Terry and his team were excellent and took great care of our special needs girl, she had a go at all activities and said it was the best day ever! As did they all, leaders included were very impressed, so worth the money.”
