Kids Camp

Exploring the hills, making dens, cooking their own food, looking after our animals, making crafty keepsakes – all this is on offer for your child, while you relax at home knowing they are in safe hands.

This is a week long camp where we will offer all sorts of exciting fun activities, and help your children thrive and feel confident away from home. Our team brings a long experience of outdoor adventure and learning. Your child will come home full of stories and experiences to tell you about, plus perhaps a bit of mud!

 

  Accommodation:

In 2018 we completed a three year project to build our inspirational bothy accommodation. Designed, built and installed by Northwoods Construction from Ullapool, the six steel clad bothies each have three double bunks in and offer a beautifully built simple shelter for your children’s stay. Our bothies feature a huge south facing window for solar gain heating, local timber and a high quality finish. In our experience the children who use them love them as much as we do!

You can see a time-lapse video of the buildings being built here, and you can read more about the project in MORE menu at the top right of this page. We are just updating our website, which will soon have a new booking system. In the meantime please e-mail sam@theshielingproject.org to register your interest.

 

Our 2021 summer camp will run from the 11th to 16th July 2021.

We are fully booked for 2021, please keep in touch for our 2022 dates.

We are waiting to see how the summer will develop due to Covid, but are taking names of people who are interested, and will get back in touch with you around Easter. Drop off and pick-up will be at 5pm. Cost is £250 per person, with reductions for siblings. This includes all food, accommodation, craft materials and 24 hour care.

“My son has just came home from summer camp and hasn’t stopped talking about it. He had an amazing time and made memories that will last forever.”  – Summer camp mum 2017.
