Fancy getting the kids immersed (& confident!) in watersports?

Here at BigStyle, we’ve designed a unique water-based kids’ camp on Cross Beach, Co. Mayo, that makes the most of the wind, the ocean and the lake to deliver an educational and craic-filled week during the summer holidays..

What’s it all about?

A 5-day immersive kids camp from 10am to 1pm each day with a range of activities to suit all interests and weather conditions*. We’ll be doing surfing, Stand up Paddleboarding, beach football, beach volleyball and even some wing SUPing (essentially a Stand up Paddleboard combined with a sail). The activities will be split into two parts with a break for snacks in the middle.

*If you’ve ever enrolled your kids in a water-based camp only for activities to be cancelled due to weather, you know how important this is!

For the adults

And, we haven’t forgotten the adults! For families who choose to stay at the on-site Atlantic Lodge, we have a pick’n’mix style activities for you too. While the younger members of the family are safely supervised having fun with our expert instructors at camp, you can choose to take part in surf lessons, yoga classes, hikes, sauna sessions or simply kick back with a book in Ireland’s most scenic areas. Located just 30km from Westport, there is also a range of attractions in the area, such as Croagh Patrick, Westport House, the Greenway, a Pirate Adventure Park, and the colourful streets of Westport.

Is there accommodation on-site?

Camp participants are welcome to stay at our Atlantic Lodge when accompanied by an adult. When you stay at the lodge, you have access to the adults activities and additional afternoon activities suitable for all the family.
