Latest News

Summer time is fast approaching, the sun is already showing its face and the kids will be wondering what to do with their time! ACTIVATE camps have it covered. We like to think of ourselves as “leaders” when it comes to camps in Waterford. We run the most “actioned packed”, fun camps around, and that’s a fact! We welcome kids from ages 5 to 13 and our camps are structured on a weekly basis. Activities include soft play, climbing, bowling, outdoor games and sports days to name but a few. Our camps commence on Monday 3rd of July and run Monday to Friday (weekly). Please note our camp will not take place on the August bank holiday. For more information on our camps click here
Due to the massive success of our Easter camps we reckon we better get planning early for our summer camps. After stocking up on new sports equipment, baking supplies and arts and crafts bits and bobs, we have plenty to keep out cute campers entertained! We have activities for everyone, come rain or shine we are good to go. We’ve got field games and picnics planned for the sunny days….and endless indoor activities for the inevitable rainy days. Our latest addition to our activity center is the amazing and exciting laser tag which we are sure our campers will be buzzing to try out. Booking is however essential, as to ensure everything runs smoothly for all involved, we need to ensure the correct adult to child ratio.   Further details will be released soon.
We are very excited to announce that we will soon be home to laser tag. Activate will be Waterfords only laser venue. Our laser system is state of the art and will give participants the opportunity to not only play against each other but also play individual games. Make sure to check our website for more details.

Week 1 of our Easter camp was a roaring success, for all involved! After a busy week of Art and Crafts, Baking, Nerf, Climbing and Talent Shows we decided to make Friday our Treat Day. Our cute little campers were greeted Friday morning with Baby Chinos, followed by a sneaky little impromptu disco in our soft play. Once all the bosses went on their errands, we cranked up the music to the max and rocked our little socks off. For a change, the weather outside was fab so we seized our chance, and had Sports Day out on the green. We finally got the use of our snazzy new Parachute too! After an action packed day, we had a little visit from the main man himself, The Easter Bunny, who hand delivered the certs for our Sports Day Participants (Notice how we had no winners?? We’re all about the taking part!) Then last but not least the kids got treated to Hot Chocolates as our parting gift for the week. We were sad to see them go,they made work an even more amazing place to be this week, we are all secretly little kids at heart and love an excuse […]

Golden Egg Hunt!

March 29, 2017 by admin in Uncategorized 0 comments
To celebrate the launch of our new loyalty cards and to coincide with Easter, we have an amazing fun competition commencing on Thursday 30th of March and ending on Easter Saturday 15th of April.. Each day we will hide a golden egg somewhere in our soft-play area. The lucky child that finds the golden egg will not only win a chocolate egg, but they will also be entered into a draw to win a pre loaded loyalty card worth an EGG-CELLENT €50.00 to be spent on any activity of their choosing at ACTIVATE. And as always NO ADULTS are allowed in the play-frame, this is a kids only competition!! For more information contact Eleanor on 051 325097.  
At Activate, the walls are covered in holds. Each colour represents a route or bouldering “problem.” When you’re on a route, you can only put your hands and feet on holds with the same colour.  Then follow the route up the wall to the highest hold of that colour, and that’s the finish. This is what makes climbing in the bouldering room fun. When you look at a wall and see over a hundred holds on it, you challenge is to figure out how to climb a route that might only use six. To finish the route you have to figure out creative ways to extend your reach and build your grip strength to hang on to small holds. Sometimes you finish a route on the first try, sometimes it takes 20 tries or more. But each time you climb you get better and that progress is addicting. Many of you already know this but I know that my first time at the climbing gym, I had no idea what was going on until someone explained it to me. Eventually, after a couple months or so, what happens is you’ll find that you’ve climbed all the routes within your skill level […]
