Summer Camps

SUMMER CAMPS

In July and August, we offer summer camps for young people who come from all over the world to experience real adventure in this beautiful landscape.

An unforgettable experience…

Our Summer Camps are a chance to make new friends, often from different nations, and to develop and grow as individuals through exciting activities and adventures in the mountains, on the sea and around the shore.

We meet all young people in Inverness at the start of the camp and travel up to the Adventure School together. It is easy and affordable to get to Inverness with direct flights from Gatwick, Luton, Bristol, Birmingham, and Manchester and also from Amsterdam.

Our Three Different Summer Camps

Three different summer camps for different ages and ambitions.

We are family-run, with a small team of young, friendly and well-trained instructors, a comfy wooden long building just yards from the shore, and great home-cooked food.

Rebecca and Mark are personally involved with each camp and we only run one camp at a time.

Over 50 years of summer camps

When the school opened its doors in July 1969, the first course to walk along the track was a two-week international summer camp for 12-18 year-olds. We have been running summer camps ever since.

In 2019, the 50th year of courses at Ardmore, we had several third-generation course participants – following in the footsteps of their parents, and grandparents before them!
