Secondary Schools ProgrammesWild things! provides a number of Wilderness Skills and Bushcraft Programmes for secondary schools in the North of Scotland – Moray, the Cairngorms and the Highlands. Environmental education activities and bushcraft are proven ways to build life skills, whilst spending time outdoors improves mental and physical health.
Our programmes are aimed at children of all abilities, and are particularly beneficial for kinesthetic learners (those that learn best through physical activity) and those who struggle in mainstream education. Our courses range from short residential camps to a longer term programme working with the school so that young people can obtain a nationally recognised qualification.
“Green exercise, outdoor activity and environmental volunteering improve young people's wellbeing and personal responsibility as well as maximising employment chances.”
