Our Junior Archaeologists’ Club takes place in An Tobar (Retreat Centre) starting from the 17th April to the 31st May 2023. There are 6 weeks of workshops available all running on a Monday from 11am – 1pm except for 31st May which will be on a Wednesday. Please ensure to check all dates listed below before booking.

Our Home-school Educational Programme provides a new and fascinating alternative to sports-themed clubs and other after-school activities for children. This specific Home-school Educational Programme is ideal for children aged 7 +. If your child is a curious explorer with a thirst for knowledge about their past, why not let them delve into the fascinating world of archaeology? Our clubs are run during the school-term, and they introduce children to the mysteries and adventures of our past in a fun, practical and hands-on way.

We use an ‘Indiana Jones’ approach to ensure your child gets a balance of time, outdoors and indoors. As well as taking part in excavations and exciting activities, children will also arrive home with an abundance of new and quirky knowledge about their ancient ancestors past.
