School holiday activities things to do in Moray outdoor learning and adventure

Spaces are always limited to EIGHT per session and available to young people aged 8-18.

Please make sure your child is dressed in suitable, warm clothing and wearing sturdy footwear and has the following with them:

  • Backpack (can be provided)
  • Packed lunch
  • Water bottle
  • Towel and change of clothes (if appropriate)

Our Grant funded programmes are aimed at providing outdoor activities for as many young people as possible, therefore, we have to limit the activities to ONE activity per child throughout the whole programme.  Therefore, we ask that you do not over book. Any over bookings will be cancelled and the preferred space will have to be rebooked.

Our next holiday programme will be the summer holidays.  Please check our events calendar for dates and booking.

In 2018, we ran a full programme of activities during the Easter holidays, thanks to a grant from Tesco Bags of Help, which was a result of customers in Tesco Elgin choosing to give us their blue tokens.

Here are a few testimonials left by some parents on our Facebook page.

I’ve known about and supported the great work that Outfit Moray do for many years through my work with Active Schools. These Easter holidays I’ve seen it closer to home through my 8 year old son’s eyes. He spent a day canoeing and came home an exhilarated canoeing superstar! He gave me a demo of paddling through the reeds and had so much news about the wildlife he’d seen, that he’d worn a wet suit and pushed the canoe back into the loch, he’d been on a little island in the middle of the loch and in his own words “I loved it”. Today he was back with Outfit for a day of archery and bushcraft. I met him at Roseisle and he walked towards me finishing his last mouthful of a sausage in a roll that he couldn’t wait to tell me he’d cooked himself on a real fire that they’d all made. He was again so animated about his day and he said everyone was so nice, he’d managed to hit the target in archery and scored lots of points for his team, he’d made new friends and he wants to be an Outfit instructor when he’s older – high praise indeed! He will jump at the chance to come back to your activities. Thank you so much for the knowledge you’ve shared with him and amazing experience. 5* review

Parent 3, Easter Holiday Activities 2018

Outfit Moray really made my girls Easter hols! They’ve had the opportunity between the 3 of them to try night biking, rock climbing, canoeing and the shore scramble and after each and every one, they’ve returned home super animated, full of chat and thoroughly exhausted. It’s great to have something a bit more challenging for them now they’re bigger and the staff and helpers are always so friendly and full of gentle encouragement. Massive Thank you to all involved. 5* review
