Add some adventure to the summer holidays and come to Glenmore Lodge for fun outdoor activities. This option allows you to book the days that suit your family best, or we offer a full five-day option. This is aimed at 10 to 17 year olds, but we also have activity days suitable for kids aged between 5 and 7.

With excellent onsite facilities including a climbing wall, extensive grounds, and a stunning local area to explore, Glenmore Lodge is the perfect place to spend time exploring, having fun, and trying something new with our experienced and friendly Instructors.

Why not make this an adventure for the whole family, and book to stay at Glenmore Lodge? While your kids have fun with our activities, you can explore the Cairngorms in your own time, book one of our skills training courses, or even make use of our quiet spaces to work remotely with inspiring views and access to tea & coffee facilities.

Children can be booked onto our activity days without the need to stay residential. For all residential bookings children must be accompanied by an adult outside of course activities. 

If you live locally in the Strathspey area, contact us to make your booking with a 20% off discount!

The aim of the week is to enjoy spending time doing a range of outdoor activities. We hope this’ll be a great opportunity to try something new, socialise with other kids, and maybe even discover a new passion for the outdoors!


No previous experience or skills required. These activity days are just about adding some adventure to the summer holidays!


If your child is aged between 10 and 17 years old and wants to perhaps try something new and fun this summer, then this is the perfect way to do that under the care of our experienced and friendly Instructors.


Activities will vary depending on the day you book your child onto, but it’s guaranteed that they’ll have fun and experience some of the excitement the outdoors has to offer. We’ll typically spend half the day doing one activity, then the other half doing something else. Our programme for the week will include:

Monday: Climbing & raft building

Tuesday: Bothy walk & abseiling

Wednesday: Canoeing & den building/scavenger hunt

Thursday: Mountain experience

Friday: Orienteering & team challenges
