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.

 

In 2022 we are running two Kids Camps plus a new Teen Camp. Our Kids Camp is for children in P5 to P7 (age 9 to 12), and our Teen Camp is for S1 to S3 (age 12 to 15). We are happy to take children a bit older or younger than these guidelines, please get in touch to chat.

Our Kids Camps will be 3rd to 8th July and 17th to 22nd July. Our Teen Camp will be 7th to 12th August.

Please get in touch if you would like to book as places go quickly.

The Camps run from 5pm on a Sunday to 5pm on the Friday. Drop off and pick-up will be at our car park in Struy. Cost is £300 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.
