SCHOOLS AND GROUPS
Our centre offers a fantastic opportunity for you to take part in a number of different experiences. You can undertake 1 to 4 night residentials, activity days, weekend stays and forest schools. The programmes will take place in a safe environment with qualified instructors who respect the individual learning needs of all participants. We can cater for all ages of participants from Primary 1 onwards with adaptable programmes for participants with additional support needs.
Our activities are underpinned by the curriculum of excellence. Participants will have a chance to develop knowledge, skills and attributes for learning, life and work, which are encapsulated within the four capacities. Successful Learner - survival skills, climbing and orienteering. Confident individuals - such as paradrop, abseiling and mountain biking. Effective contributor - such as raft building, team building and crate stack. Responsible citizen - such as nature activities, target archery and environmental project. The activities run will be tailored to each groups needs and will fit the learning challenges required to be undertaken within the curriculum.
Our Risk Benefit Analysis links the Experiences and Outcomes to each activity.

For the past two years the children of St Leonard's Primary School have had the most invaluable experiences at Auchengillan Outdoor Centre. We have booked again for next year and look forward to enjoying a fabulous week crammed full of exciting activities, great food and wonderful instructors, who by their very nature and professionalism have given our children a week that they will always treasure. Many, many heartfelt thanks to all those involved and we look forward to seeing you all again next year!
I went here with my school and loved it. My favourite activities were the rock climbing, abseiling, paradrop and pole climb. It was a fantastic experience, I really enjoyed it.
