What is Epoch?

The word Epoch is defined “as an important period of time in an era” … and there is no-more an important time than the formative teenage years.

Epoch is an away-from-home experience with a core focus on the personal development of teenagers. Through packed days of workshops and activities kids will:

  • Optimise learning
  • Enhance friendships
  • Understand and improve physical & psychological Well-being
  • Develop Life Skills

It’s in Sligo!

There are few places in Ireland that offer the broad scope that Sligo has to offer. A richness of history and literature, crossed with rugged mountain hikes, dense forest walks and beaches that are  the envy of the world.

Packed full of activities

The week will be packed with activities, workshops and lots of outdoors.

  • Epoch Workshops will have a strong focus on Physical and Mental wellbeing.
  • Outdoor activity – Participants will embrace the great outdoors of Sligo. Activities will include the following; HIIT training, kayaking, resistance training, camping, team building, orienteering, forest trails, dance, yoga and much more.

With amazing host families.
