School Holiday Camps

Ages 6+ | Award-Winning Experiences | All Equipment Provided

Amazing outdoor experiences right on your doorstep!

Join us for an unforgettable experience at our School Holiday Camps this year. Based across some of Scotland’s most beautiful and diverse landscapes, our camps take school breaks to the next level with rock climbing, archery and MORE every day!

Our camp drop-off and collection points are carefully selected to ensure your mornings are as stress-free as possible. With good public transport links and ample space for parking, we make sure that every step of the journey is as easy as can be. (Please note for 2024 the drop off and pick up location will be West End Outdoors, 190 Milngavie Road, Bearsden, G61 3DX)

Throughout your child’s time at camp, they will be cared for by our team of expert outdoor instructors who oversee everything from daredevil abseils to reuniting lost socks. These staff members are PVG checked and undergo regular training and assessment of their respective activities.

So, what’s next? Just book in through our website, and we’ll sort the rest.

FAQ for the Parents

Whether it’s your child’s first or third time coming to camp, we know you might have some questions.

Click here to view our FAQ page and, if that still doesn’t help, just give us a ring!



Can you read a map? Have you ever climbed into the clouds? Push yourself to reach new heights with a Hillwalking session, and get a cracking view while you’re at it.



Canoeing can take you anywhere – across rivers and lochs, on to islands, and in the water if you’re not careful enough!

Team Challenge


Team Challenge is all about developing communication, critical thinking and problem solving skills (as well as having fun while you’re at it)!

Climbing & Abseiling


Climbing is a challenging session which demands concentration, teamwork and a good bit of bravery!



Can you build a sturdy shelter, light a fire and ID your way through a forest? That’s what Bushcraft is all about!



Learn the art of aiming with step-by-step instruction from our experienced archers and you might even hit a gold!



Our School Holiday Camps take place in the beautiful and diverse landscapes of Scotland’s West Coast and Central Belt. We provide transport there and back to all campers, so just make sure you arrive at drop-offs on time.

Drop-offs and collections will be at 8:30am from West End Outdoors, Unit 1, 190 Milngavie Road, Bearsden, G61 3DX

School Holiday Adventures Testimonials

"I’ve just got home with the kids. I was expecting moans and groans but there was none of that. The oldest can be a bit anti social but she was chatting away about the friends she made. I wish I’d booked them in for the full week instead of random days so the friendships they made could flourish but I’ll know for next time. Thanks again"

"Our girls ages 10 and 12y had a fabulous time for 2 days on the spring camp. They built fires, made pizza, went grass sledging. The highlight for them was the stand up paddle boarding with fun games. We will book again for summer."

"Our 8 year old son has just been for the week. Every day he has rushed out of bed, put on his clothes, raring to go...... What greater endorsement!"

"My daughter attended West end adventure for 2 days and absolutely loved it. Originally I booked one day but she enjoyed it so much I booked another and will be booking again in the near future. Staff were great and my daughter had great fun and met another friend along the way."

"Found out about this place from a friend in work , thought I would book my daughter in to get her off you tube! She had an amazing time! Spent full day squeezeling and loved every minute of it, came home happy, muddy and shattered, would definitely return and recommend"
