Green Team Summer Programme for Kids, 2014


This may be of interest to parents looking for summer activity camps with a focus on outdoor learning.  It’s the Green Team Summer Programmes, a great way to have fun in the outdoors, make new friends, and take part in a range of exciting environmental activities, discovering and exploring some of Edinburgh’s most stunning countryside.  Activities include shelter building, outdoor cooking, camouflage, storytelling, rock pooling, natural art and mini raft building.

Each day organisers and young people will meet at 9 am in the car park at Tynecastle High School, Edinburgh, and then travel by minibus. Return time is 5 pm.  There will be 2 members of the Green Team staff leading each activity.  Children and young people should bring a packed lunch and drink; snacks will be provided.

Who are the Green Team?  They’re an environmental organisation based in the Lothians.  They work with young people to restore and conserve wild places as an important part of learning about the natural heritage of Scotland.  They explore the countryside, and carry out projects and games on conservation themes.  Since 1995 over 1700 young people have worked with the Green Team improving their local area, learning about the countryside and achieving a range of awards.
