Eco Pirates

Ahoy me hearties…avast ye! Our fun filled and action packed Eco Pirates day is sure to get your class engaged in sustainability, recycling and so much more.


The Carymoor Eco Pirates love the 3 Rs (Arrrghhhs!) and are well known for pillaging others' rubbish and turning it into treasure. During your visit your landlubbing class will meet some old Salty Sea Dogs who will take them through a choice of exciting activity options such as:


  • A 3Rs themed treasure hunt or 'unnatural' nature trail
  • Ship-wreck and shelter-build
  • Mini landfill site tour (your coach will be needed for this, please discuss when booking).
  • Piratey 3Rs games: Reduce snap, Re-use challenge, Recycle relay race (including plank-walking) and more!
  • Transform your rubbish into a variety of planters to plant up and take home. Either: Newspaper pirate pots; Yoghurt pot Parrot pots; or milk bottle boat planters for your school grounds!
  • Make recycled paper treasure maps to help continue your pirate experience back at school.


If you'd prefer, we can offer an Eco Superheroes or Explorers theme instead.
