Finding the right location for holiday camp groups can be challenging on several levels. Our accommodation options, highly skilled activity leaders who have the experience of working with groups of young people makes us the ideal partner for your organisation.

Group holiday camps are a great way to help young people grow in confidence, help with motivation, and help instil positivity. Experience Outdoors centres near Dunoon and Aviemore can offer a wide range of packages which can include activities, self-catering accommodation, instructors and equipment in two of the best locations in Scotland.

For groups who prefer to run their own programme, we can offer venue hire, accommodation, onsite facilities and equipment hire. We have BBQ huts, picnic areas and plenty of parking.

Experience Outdoors can offer tailored activity packages to help make your stay memorable. Contact the centre to discuss.

We have included a testimonial from a parent which demonstrates the importance of outdoor learning.

"My son and daughter attended the week course in August, and I had informed you my son has ASD. I would like to thank all your staff as my children had a wonderful time. My son had a period of being unsettled and agitated and getting his sister to help and the attention staff paid towards getting it resolved so the day could continue.

The fact they were in separate teams gave her time to be her adventurous self and be away from being a young carer for her brother but also be there if anything was needed. They would both love to return next year if they can be placed on a waiting list if there is one.

Thank you all very much, you have achieved something I did not think was possible for my son, to enjoy a regular activity with support if required by genuine caring staff - many thanks."
