Get In Touch!

An Authentic & Educational Experience.

The Wild Summits School Expedition Programme offers students a true outdoor educational experience. Students will have autonomy by planning and executing their own expedition in one of Ireland's beautiful landscapes.

Educate

We have developed a programme that will allow for learning from start to finish. Your students will learn about map reading, environmental issues, autonomy in the hills and also touch on the geography curriculum.

Explore

Explore areas of beauty in the Irish wilderness while camping under the stars! We even provide students with their own tent, backpack and more.

Inspire

Our goal is to inspire students to embrace the outdoors. We believe that reconnecting with nature can help mental health and also drive a more sustainable future for all.

Testimonial

I would highly recommend the Wild Summits team! Our Transition Year students had an amazing experience on their trip! Challenging and rewarding, students still talk about it as a highlight of the year. Wild Summits is well organised and the team has an amazing set of expertise adapting the course to suit the students. It is exactly what we needed! Thankyou Wild Summits.
