What, Where, Who and How
What do we do?
Activities - depending on weather and tides - can range from abseiling to archery, camping, climbing, fishing, gorge scrambling, hill walking, kayaking, night navigation, orienteering, rafting, sailing, mountain biking and coasteering.
Groups may also embark on a combination of camping, sailing and exploration expeditions involving everything from navigation to ecology and cultural heritage
In recent years, in order to make our courses more accessible to more young people, we have also introduced a range of other elements including arts and crafts, pottery, song, environmental issues and even yoga.
The courses themselves are run under the supervision of properly accredited and professional instructors with Camp&Trek maintaining an on-going oversight role.
Where do we do it?
We like nothing better than to introduce young people to the rugged beauty of the Isle of Skye or the surrounding Scottish Highlands and Islands.
The settings for our courses serve to offer the young people involved a chance to test themselves, find new strengths and skills, but equally importantly to allow them …to simply enjoy the experience and meet new friends.
Who do we do it with?
We were established with the aim of working with a wide variety of young people, aged between 12 – 25 years. So far these have included those with learning disabilities, disadvantaged young people and young carers, who often miss out on so much while helping others.
Our residential courses usually run over five days and are offered at significantly discounted rates.
How can you do it?
It’s easy, just contact us….and have a chat! We have a large degree of flexibility as to the type of young people or groups with whom we are involved so, if you are interested, than why not email firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call on 01470 542444. We look forward to hearing from you!
Camp&Trek was originally founded in 1999 and since moving its base to the Isle of Skye has put on a programme of annual courses which have been enjoyed by and benefitted hundreds of young people from all across the UK. Most of our activities take place in the Scottish Highlands giving those who attend a chance to discover the Great Outdoors, make new friends and find out more about their own abilities and potential.
