I’ve been working on the excellent Falkirk Community Trust Outdoors Summer Youth Adventure Programme the last couple of weeks. I’ve mostly been involved with the climbing, coasteering and gorge walking sessions.
The weather has generally been warm and sunny, but with heavy downpours and thunderstorms. If you’re heading out climbing check the weather forecast and think about quick drying crags.
The last couple of days I’ve been with Mike on Monday and John on Tuesday Gorge Walking in the Kirkton Burn with two groups from George Heriot’s.
The last two days I’ve been working on The Falkirk Community Trust Outdoors Schools Programme. On Tuesday I was at Benny Beg rock climbing with a great group from Carrongrange School.
Today I was Gorge Walking in the Kirkton Burn with another great group from Grangemouth High School. Really good to see these groups getting out and about and making the most of outdoor learning opportunities.
Craig and I were in the Kirkton Burn near Balquhidder today Gorge Walking with a group on the final day of the Falkirk Community Trust Summer Programme for kids.
An excellent way to finish the programme with the kids getting to climb waterfalls, slide down natural waterslides and jump in to deep pools.
Yesterday Steve and I were gorge walking with a group from the Falkirk Community Trust summer programme in the Kirkton Gorge, Balquhidder. This excellent gorge has lots of options for falls to climb and some good slides and jumps.
Monday to Wednesday this week I was working on the Falkirk Community Trust Summer Programme for kids and this included climbing at Blackford Quarry and gorge walking at Clachan of Campsie. These were both with the younger age group based out of Action Outdoors in Brightons and the venues worked well for these groups.
I spent last week working for Falkirk Community Trust on their excellent Summer Programme for kids.
During the week I was out with groups on The Chain Walk and Coasteering at Elie; gorge walking near Balquhidder and at Muiravonside and rock climbing at Traprain Law.
A Falkirk Community Trust Team of John, Nigel, Steve and me were in Kirkton Gorge near Balquhidder today for some gorge walking Staff Training.
On Thursday this week I was gorge walking in Kirkton Gorge with Nigel and an excellent group from Graham High School in Falkirk.
Craig and I were in the Kirkton Gorge today with a group from the excellent Falkirk Community Trust Summer Programme for kids.
The group were great and dealt with what were the new challenges of gorge walking for most of them extremely well.
