The activities the young people will take part in all revolve around multi-media and sports, such as Team-building, Low-ropes challenge, Orienteering, Archery, Traversing claiming wall, Survival skills, Mountain biking, team games, Zip-line, Grass-sledging, water pipes, High-ropes, crate-stacking, team challenges, “Hurling” and Gaelic football, and swimming.Each country will also present some traditional games, or old games from their own country's.We intend to use the medium of multi-media and sports as a way to break down any barriers between the young people.The potential longer term benefits to each young person is huge, such as making new-friends from different country's, exploring different cultures, food and language, learning new skills like photography and video making, learning and experiencing new sports and games, becoming more physically active, and hopefully have the opportunity to visit each others country at a later date
