Pentlands Activity Camps (during Easter/Summer Holidays)
Pentlands Activity Camps (PAC) offers school holiday fun, adventure and activity for school aged children (5+/nearing the end of Primary 1) and young teenagers. The emphasis is on having fun, excitement and new experiences in a healthy, positive and safe environment. The ethos of PAC is to make each child feel unique and valued, with the age sensitive programme allowing the child to grow in self-confidence and social skills. Our venues have been specially selected for their rural locations and offer an extensive natural playground where children have the freedom to explore and play.
Who runs PAC?
Established in 2005, PAC is organised and run by Lindsay Mann, Sally Brown and Ian Reid. All are locals with over forty years professional experience of working with children in a variety of childcare settings between them.
When is PAC?
PAC camps run on a day basis from Monday to Friday during the Easter and Summer holidays. The structured activity programme will run from 9 am to 5 pm – an “extra time” service is also available before and after these times.
