Boy and girl building a shelter in the woods

Would you like your kids to play outside in the fresh air, learning how to be independent and self-reliant? Would you like your kids to learn maths and science without even realising it? Or perhaps you have a child with ADHD and need an experience which helps them relax and focus.

We set up the Adventure Club to meet all those needs, teaching outdoor skills in a fun yet challenging way to kids ages 7 and up (or under 7 with a parent attending). We’ll also be running a special Adventure Club week for teens in the first week of August.

Ranging from building shelters to making fire, learning how to navigate to staying safe in the outdoors, the Club also links strongly to the Scottish Curriculum for Excellence, particularly in developing maths and science skills.

During the school holidays, the Holiday Adventure Club runs all day from 9:30 – 5:00pm at the eco camp at Bamff Estate, near Alyth, Perthshire. 

During the school term, the After School Adventure Club runs for 90 minutes, one day a week for 6 weeks and is currently running at Isla Primary School in Angus, but can be run at any school or group in the Perthshire or Angus area. 

Each Adventure Club session is themed around:

  • Navigation
  • Shelter Building
  • Fire Making
  • Survival Skills

Earning badges

Children earn badges upon completion of each day, starting with Level 1 and progressing through the Levels as skills are mastered. When a child has earned all 4 badges in a Level, a special ceremony takes place including a special cord for holding and displaying badges earned.

5 different badges

About the Author Rachel DuBois

In order to heal my Chronic Fatigue and fibromyalgia, I had to rewild myself. That meant several years of big changes and daily effort, from diet to energy medicine to connecting to nature. It's a lot! My biggest wish is to help others like me by making that journey to wellness and authenticity easier and less lonely.
