Bikeability is a cycle training scheme designed to give children the skills and confidence they need both to cycle safely on the roads, and to encourage them to carry on cycling into adulthood. Spòrs Gàidhlig is able to deliver bikeability to level three. This is a great activity to deliver through Gaelic as it’s full of language and engaging for young people. We can also offer bikeability to learners at a level which is suitable for their needs.
Bushcraft & Forest School
Bushcraft is excellent for learning new skills in the outdoors. Our workshops include fire making, shelter building and others and can be combined with other activities to make a fulfilling programme for young people. For example, a SUP session can be combined with bushcraft meaning that there can be two simultaneous activities taking place.
Climbing & Abseiling
This is a great activity for personal challenge and a real thrill for everyone. The great thing is that there is usually a local crag where an abseil or climbing session can be set up. If groups have been going to a climbing wall, we can help take those skills outside.
Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme – Expedition Section
We are able to support schools with the delivery of their Duke of Edinburgh expedition programme, both in Gaelic and English. We can support your school and groups with training, planning, practice and qualifying expeditions. Spòrs Gàidhlig is an approved activity provider for the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme and we can also provide expedition equipment for participants.
Gorge Walking is a fun, challenging activity which brings a smile to everyone’s face. It also allows skills which are not apparent in the classroom to become more obvious in a new and exciting environment. We deliver gorge scrambling throughout Scotland and can come to your area. We have the equipment, professional instructors and everything else required for a fun, challenging and safe adventure.
John Muir Award
We have been offering the John Muir Award at all levels for a number of years. It’s a great way to introduce multiple subjects to young people. Our award programme is flexible and based on engaging with nature and the Gaelic language. We use camera traps, nature surveys, area clean-ups and also develop presentation skills. An adventurous activity can be included to increase the excitement level.
Overnight Micro Adventures are a great way for young people to experience sleeping outside, nature, the Gaelic language and learn new skills such as how to cook outside and leave no trace. It’s environmentally sound, educational and lots of fun. Our Overnight Micro Adventures involve walking a short distance to our wild camp site, set up camp, cook our food, take part in a small cèilidh and sleep the night in a hammock. Our professional instructors accompany and lead the group at all times and ensure that everyone is well fed, safe and can get a good night sleep. In the morning we can have a shower at our base and head home having had a new experience with friends. Each adventure is suitable for children 9+ and parents are welcome to accompany their children if they prefer. Parents do not need to attend though and our instructors lead the group at all times.
