13 - 20 Jul, Glenshee , S2 - S6, £319.00
Accompanied travel: Edinburgh, Glasgow, Perth

For a multi activity event, this one is fairly laid back - plenty of time to chill out.

This event is for you if you want a mixture of organised activities with time to relax out with others who have the same interests as you. It’s a relatively small event with an older age range.

We are always so pleased to see the number of young people that come back year after year. Every year, new people join in too and are welcomed and quickly settle in.

Many of the young people who come have a Christian faith and are interested in exploring this in more depth through discussion and help with understanding the Bible better.

If you have been to a lot of SU camps before but are looking for something geared for seniors or never experienced an SU Holiday and want a chance to explore your faith then this just might be the right event for you.

Colin and Kirsty McArthur will be leading with us again - they bring so much to the event and have been coming for several years. This year they will be joined by their son, Lewis who will be 8 months old. Many of the team members that have been at the event before are returning.

Rosie has been leading this event for over 20 years and Paul on and off for the last 10. It is truly a highlight of our year – we hope it will be yours too.

Your team leaders for this holiday are Rosie Bowker & Paul Bowker.

What's the location like?

If you love the outdoors you’ll love this…are you up for it?

The adventure never stops at Glenshee. Many of the exciting outdoor activities are led by Compass Christian Centre instructors, while the SU Holidays team run other aspects of the holiday, leading games, craft sessions, providing loads of fun and high levels of supervision throughout the holiday.

The evening programme provides time to relax but is just as adventurous, looking at the Bible to see how it applies to our lives today.

What's Outside?

Well for starters there’s the stunning location in one of Scotland’s outdoor activity hotspots. The centre grounds include a spectacular tree climb, ropes course and even its own lochan for kayaking and raft building. Other outdoor activities really make the most of the exciting local terrain, such as abseiling and gorge walking.

What’s inside?

Inside at Glenshee Lodge you’ll find a well equipped centre with a spacious dining room and two lounges. Meals at Glenshee are provided by the centre staff…and you don’t even need to help with the washing up! The accommodation is all in bunk-bedded rooms. Rooms are for 4 – 8 people and the centre sleeps around 50 altogether. There’s a sports hall, a climbing room with walls to challenge your skills, and a games room. So no shortage of great activities inside either.

Where is it?

Glenshee is right in the centre of Scotland, in amongst some of Perthshire’s highest peaks. Aberdeen, Inverness, Glasgow and Edinburgh are no more than two hours away, so wherever you are starting from, Glenshee is not too far away.
