What, Where, Who and HowWhile we have tried to give a flavour below about how we operate and our annual programme the arrival of COVID has had a significant impact. We are striving to return to our pre-pandemic aims and ambitions but are doing so with the best interests of all in mind and at a pace which works with current advice or regulatory restrictions.
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 order to make our courses more accessible to more young people, we have also been known to introduce a range of other elements including arts and crafts, pottery, song, environmental issues and even yoga. We really do try and tailor our programme to the needs - and wishes - of those involved.
The courses themselves are run under the supervision of fully 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, usually aged between 12 - 19 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 are offered at significantly discounted rates and we are always happy to discuss with groups about their particular needs and the support they may need to be part of our programme.
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 email@example.com or give us a call on 07765 899650. 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.
