Summer Activity Programme for Young People with Autism 2018

SOEC is a Scottish Charity and not-for-profit organisation with over 75 years’ experience of delivering outdoor learning experiences to young people.

Over the last two years, SOEC has worked closely with Lothian Autistic Society to create a very successful Life Skills Development Programme from its Broomlee Outdoor Education Centre.  The Broomlee staff team therefore has knowledge and experience of working with young people with autism and understand every young participant will have different personal challenges and in turn different personal goals.

SOEC is offering a Summer Activity Programme of activity days for young people with autism based at Broomlee Centre, West Linton.   Activities, dependent on the ability of the group and their interests, are likely to include:

●    Hillwalking
●    Woodland exploration
●    River dipping
●    Archery
●    Bushcraft
●    Learning to make a fire and outdoor cooking
●    Raft building
●    Problem solving

SOEC Tutors can identify individual strengths and weaknesses and develop a programme which offers challenge and enjoyment in a safe and nurturing environment to meet the individual’s needs.  Tutors take time at all stages of the programme to work with both the group as a whole and also each individual within a group. For this reason the maximum group size is limited to 6.  Staff can accommodate more than one group of 6 if there is demand for this programme.

The activity days will take place every Tuesday between 10am and 5pm, starting on Tuesday 10 July.   The last day will be Tuesday 14 August.

The cost of the Summer Activity Programme is £210 per day.  With a group of 6 this will be £35.00 per person, per day (based on a group of 6).  Bring your own lunch/snacks/drink.

For more information, please contact SOEC head office on 01899 221115.

Transport might be available between Edinburgh and Broomlee Centre for an additional fee.
