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.
