Too young for a Gap Year Program? Our 3 week Transition Adventure Program (TAP Program) has been developed for freshmen, sophomore and junior High School students who want to prepare for College, have a summer adventure and experience the culture and history of Ireland.
During the Program you will get to experience Ireland’s rugged and beautiful landscape by doing fun adventure activities such as, surfing, sea-kayaking, hiking, wilderness camping and stand-up paddle-boarding. You will also visit some of Ireland’s top cultural and tourist attractions. Discover the epic beauty of Ireland’s north-west coast, which is part of the Wild Atlantic Way, by doing fun outdoor adventure activities. Learn to surf or stand-up-paddle-board in the Surf Capital of Ireland, Bundoran on the Wild Atlantic Way, camp out under the stars at a secluded beach and tell stories around the campfire, explore caves, cliffs and inlets as you paddle in a sea-kayak around Donegal Bay.
