With our Adventure Activity Program, youth groups are given the opportunity to acquire new skills in outdoor activities within a supportive environment. We love to see individuals flourish, have fun and be given a platform to realise their full potential. There are countless physical and mental health benefits that go hand in hand with outdoor adventures. Within our programs, there are activities that that encourage individuals to challenge themselves, conquer fears and build self-confidence and resilience, giving them a huge sense of achievement. Alongside this are activities that progress social skills such as teamwork and communication. In every session we share our love for the environment, helping people to reconnect with nature and inspiring them to care for it.
Active have a long history in Youth Development Courses with outdoor activities; it is an intrinsic part of our company and the ethos which has developed around it. It’s more than just activities – it’s about people, families, and communities.
Outdoor Activity Days for Youth Groups
Within a single day, you can either choose a full day outdoor activity or split the day into two sessions for your youth group. A full day activity could be a kayaking adventure down the river Spey or a day spent hillwalking up a local Munro. Alternatively, you could choose to spend an exciting morning gorge walking, and an afternoon canoeing on a beautiful Loch.
