THIRD SECTOR

We have a long-established relationship with the third sector and charitable organisations, both as training facilitators and outdoor experience providers. We aim our wide range of accessible activities and accommodation at young people and adults.

Experience Outdoors is a member of the Institute of Outdoor Learning, and one of our fundamental values is facilitating Outdoor Learning across all communities, including discovery and experimentation, stimulating curiosity and developing an appreciation of the world around us which results in significant academic, health and wellbeing benefits. Working with Third Sector organisations is at the core of our values and purpose.

Our centres in the Cairngorms and Argyll offer a wide range of on-site activities and accommodation options. We can work with your group to tailor a package which suits the age range and abilities, providing an inclusive approach. Our on-site instructors and activity leaders will help make your parties outdoor learning experience safe and memorable.

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

OUTDOOR GROUP EXPERIENCES

Our outdoor experience activities are very popular with many clubs, companies, families and organisations. We work in partnership with you and your group to ensure all participants receive the best experience possible from their visit. No matter the size or type of group we can help develop the perfect package. We offer activity only, accommodation only or a combination of both to help create a memorable experience.

Our specialist outdoor activity centres in Cairngorm and Argyll offer unique ways to learn and explore the outdoors. Lagganlia Outdoor Centre in the heart of the Cairngorms is perfect for learning to ski or climbing activity, while Benmore Outdoor Centre located in Argyll, an area surrounded by lochs and forests, has something to offer everyone - from canyoning and sailing to festivals and forest walks. 

We’ve highlighted a selection of groups and organisations who have enjoyed visiting our centres and the outdoor experiences we offer. Take a look but if your particular group section is not here, contact us to chat through how we can make your next break one to remember.
