Our Holiday Activity Programmes run over the Easter, Summer and October school holidays and are for young people aged 8-12 years to explore some of Edinburgh and the Lothian’s most amazing wild places. Spend time playing stealth and tracking games, looking in rock pools, going on adventure walks, making bows and arrows, woodland crafts, pond dipping and floating mini rafts down the river.

Activity Programmes are led by Green Team staff and are supported by adult volunteers.

Sessions normally run during Easter, Summer and the October breaks. View the schedule below to book.
