Several Christian organisations run Outdoor Learning Centres, which are widely used by schools as key parts of their annual curriculum. Residential and day activities include Environmental Education, P7-S1 Transition, Leadership courses, Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, etc:
Scripture Union Scotland has two Centres (one near Kinross and one near Aviemore). Both centres offer educational packages linked closely to Curriculum for Excellence: http://www.classroomoutdoors.org.uk/
Compass Christian Centre, Glenshee http://www.compasschristian.co.uk/ The Compass Christian Centre caters regularly for schools groups offering P7-S1 transition, S1 Induction etc. Also well used by pupils for the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme. Like all the Christian Centres listed here, part of the residential experience is a short interactive session in line with the Christianity Experiences and Outcomes.
