Are you a young wildlife adventurer who likes exploring in the outdoors? Then join Green Explorers our monthly programme for 8-12 year olds. Learn woodland survival skills, fire lighting and outdoor cooking. Have fun and adventures in wild places playing stealth games, learning tracking, using camouflage, and discovering more about the wildlife around you.
Have fun making mini rafts to float down a river, whittling sticks to toast marshmallows round the fire and then relaxing in a hammock between the trees.
Projects are led by the Green Explorers Project Co-ordinator and are supported by adult volunteers. We spend time discovering and exploring a variety of parks, woodlands and nature reserves in and around Edinburgh. The programme runs all year round on Sundays once a month.
Children should bring warm and waterproof clothing, a packed lunch and water bottle. We provide equipment and can supply waterproofs and boots if required. We give full safety instructions for all the activities. Transport is provided by minibus from Tynecastle High School or occasionally we meet on site.
