Forest Activity Camps for Children
Imagine a place where children are working together to build a shelter, a dragon's nest, a fairy village ... whittling sticks to toast their bread and looking for bugs in a rotten log.
At Outdoor Cleghorn, based to the east of Lanark, we bring together the unique landscape of Cleghorn and our own experience of working with children to create outdoor day camps for children aged 5 to 11.
They will develop an understanding and enjoyment of the world around them from spending whole days outdoors, learning about their surroundings by playing in them; from the trees and birds above them to the microscopic world beneath their feet.
Our first camp ran during the Easter holidays and was a great success. To see what sorts of things you can expect, click on 'Photo Gallery' at the top of the page. It's amazing how muddy and wet you can get when you are in charge!
We built dens and mud slides. Made mud faces and 'chocolate' soup. We ate smores, splashed in streams and climbed trees. No two days were the same; no two children as muddy as each other. Already looking forward to the summer.
