Our Holiday Activity Programmes run over the school holidays and are for young people aged 9+ 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 a variety of Green Team staff and are supported by adult volunteers. Children can sign up for a whole week or book on individual days. Early bird rates are available. Children aged 8+ are welcome to attend with an older sibling. Places are limited to 12 children a day.
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 each day leaving at 9.30am and returning at 4.30pm..
