Primary School outdoor activity residential visits

At Abernethy, we pride ourselves on our flexibility in tailoring programmes to meet the needs of our visiting schools.  You may be looking for a full on multi activity programme and might include the John Muir Award Discovery Level or the JASS Award Adventure Section or perhaps you want to prepare your P7s for high school with our in house Leadership through Adventure Award.  Click HERE to view all of the outdoor activities we offer across the four centres. 

Our Primary School adventure activity packages range from a two night weekend stay to a full week of 4 nights accommodation (or more) and prices vary depending on the time of year – you can even enjoy a week of the finest Scottish skiing with your school.  All of our packages include an evening “Explore” programme and you can rest assured that your pupils will be kept busy by our teams for the majority of their stay.

To help in the planning of your visit, we have pdf downloads available which include a suggested kit list and sample programmes to give you a flavour of what your Abernethy experience could be.  You can also take a look at our online schools brochure HERE.  To recieve a hard copy of our brochure contact our schools business manager Lesley Pearson using the details below.

Visit our Teacher’s Zone which is packed full of information including activity options, affordability, risk assessments, insurance, menus and more.

Our Schools business manager, Lesley Pearson is happy to answer any of your general school booking questions on 0131 336 3588 or by e-mail or you can contact the centre of your choice directly.
