A CHANCE TO TRY NEW SPORTS
During the Woodlands Summer camp, our students have the chance to participate in all of the following: Sailing, Irish Dancing, Horse Riding, Basketball, Futsal, Golf and Tennis.

Students get to try out all of these sports over the 4 weeks which is a fantastic opportunity as the camp is not focussed on one or two sports, but a variety of same.
