The East Lothian Adventure Academy needs you!


What is the Adventure Academy… A group of pupils from across East Lothian Council  schools who will meet and work together on a range of outdoor adventurous activities including rock-climbing, orienteering, canoeing, kayaking and mountain sports.

When and where  … From September 2017  on regular Tuesday evenings 4:30 – 6:30 pm at the Outdoor Learning Service base in Musselburgh.  Monthly and fortnightly Friday afternoons,  occasional weekend days and a Summer expedition in the last week of the year.

Who is it for … Any S2 pupil who wants to be inspired, stretched and challenged by outdoor adventures. It’s for anyone who’s interested in outdoor pursuits as a hobby, or  maybe even considering a future working in the outdoors.

What will it cost …  A nominal charge will be made for transport, entry fees and any residential costs incurred.   We do not anticipate these being more than a couple of pounds per session. The residential will be approximately £100 dependent on the accommodation required.  There is no cost for staff time or equipment.

What will I get out of it … learn new skills,  maybe gain some awards, work as a team, build your resilience and confidence. Have adventures!
