Young people aged 8 to 16 are invited to come explore with us and discover the wonders of Holyrood Park, a unique wild space in the heart of Edinburgh.Furthermore we have teamed up with the John Muir Trust, with activities supporting their aim of protecting wild places and reconnecting people with nature. By taking part in our program young people will have the opportunity to participate in the John Muir Award, taking on the 4 challenges this encompasses; discovering a wild place, exploring its wildness, doing something to conserve it and, sharing experiences. As part of the summer programme participants will have the chance to achieve an Award at Discovery level. The two week long programs will offer participants the chance to learn all about the parks past, present and future through an engaging mixture of outdoor activities, scientific investigation, practical conservation, team games and more.
