Aberdeenshire Adventure Summer Camp
2nd August 2021 @ 9:30 am - 1:30 pmFree
Thanks to Get Into Summer and sportscotland funding kindly distributed to us by Aberdeenshire ClubSport, we’re delighted to be able to offer a series of half-day adventure camps for people living in Aberdeenshire with disabilities and additional support needs aged 8 – 17, and their families.
The camps will take place at Lochter Activity Centre just outside Oldmeldrum and there is no charge to attend. The activities will be led by Lochter staff, and Alison from Scottish Disability Sport will be in attendance at all sessions to offer guidance & support, but all child attendees must be accompanied by a parent or carer (who can opt to book a space to participate too or solely attend to support the person they care for). There are limited spaces available on a first-come-first-served basis.
For morning camps, please feel free to bring your packed lunch to enjoy after the activities have finished. Refreshments are also available in the on-site cafe. All camps will provide 3 activity sessions & each camp will last approximately 3 hours.
All activity-specific equipment will be provided by Lochter, but please make sure you have a change of clothes and wet weather clothing to hand in case of adverse weather. An accessible toilet is available on-site, although it does not have a changing table. If you think your child would require any specialist equipment or modifications in order to participate in the adventure camp, please let us know in your registration form & we’ll call you to discuss.
