Simply Refocus

Comeragh Wilderness Camp is a unique therapeutic programme for young people or families who wish to take some time to refocus, build new skills, and gain fresh confidence for life challenges.

Learning in the outdoors can reignite us and cultivate our life skills. Cooking meals over a fire, building shelters in the forest, hiking in the Comeragh mountains, canoeing a river, and observing nature are ways that learning takes place at CWC.

Located near Rathgormack, Co. Waterford, the camp is open to a variety of young people. Check the different programmes we offer or contact us if you have a question.

Discovery Programme

A week long programme offering 4-10 days for lads ages 11-14 who want to take a fresh look at life and might need a chance to break a negative cycle. They could be facing challenges in relating to others at school or at home or perhaps just need a break from technology. The Discovery Programme can provide a way to enjoy life outside the box and a chance to find some headspace.

Explorer Programme

A one day activities for groups or individuals who want to spend time outdoors, learning and adventuring together. Group size is up to 15. Ages can vary from 6 to adult. The hours are also adjustable but a normal day runs from 10:00 to 16:00.

Summer Camp

A week of activities for ages 6-13. Children participate in range of activities based on their abilities from nature exploration, team building, and bush craft, to hillwalking and canoeing. There is only space for 40 children each week so book early to avoid being disappointed. The day starts at 10:00 and finishes at 15:00.

Leadership Challenge

A higher challenge for a more advanced group of youth ages 13-16 who want to grow in their leadership and social skills. This camp has a Christian emphasis which the other camps don’t include and this has to do with character development, Bible study, and personal reflection time. Group size can be up to 7.

My experience with this camp has been outstanding. The individuals who run the programme are compassionate, caring and truly concerned for the lads they take into their care. The camp is a unique and highly effective therapeutic offering, and the helping hand the chiefs extend does not end when your child leaves the venue. Any other parent I have met who has had a child take advantage of this outlet has mirrored my feelings. I have no reservations recommending this camp.

It's an incredible and peaceful place where support and guidance is given to young people who have lost their direction in life. They learn to appreciate the simple things in life and a new awareness of the needs of others. It deserves great success and support.
