About Us

SOEC has spent almost 70 years enabling people to access the outdoors and the environment in a safe and sustainable way. To this end we offer a broad range of programmes and activities, all designed to be relevant, exciting and challenging. Every year we welcome thousands of people to our Centres and visitors include primary and secondary schools, youth groups, music groups, groups with specific needs and many individuals. As such we are the largest provider of residential outdoor learning in Scotland.

Our Approach

SOEC has many years experience in outdoor education. We are guided by the principles that outdoor education should be fun but that learning about ourselves and our place in the world is a natural outcome of our programmes.

SOEC contributes to Scottish Government outcomes in youth work.  A link to YouthLink Scotland information is here.
