Join us in the Cairngorms for a weekend of
High-quality outdoor learning training focused on STEM
Ideas that you can take back to school, wherever you are based
Great company, with like minded individuals
and even a hot tub to relax in
This September, we are running our next Dirty Weekend. Our innovative weekends combine a retreat along with some learning, carefully balanced to ensure you leave feeling refreshed, revived and reinvigorated!
Our September weekend will focus on STEM, yup, science, technology, engineering, and maths.
You will arrive on Friday afternoon and meet your roommate (single room supplements are available). Of course, if you have a friend or colleague joining you, we can match you together. You will have some time to relax before the first of our communal meals. After dinner, we will have some simple activities to allow everyone to explore and get to know one another.
Saturday starts with a filling breakfast before we head outside. Participants are encouraged to contribute a short workshop, something you are interested in, an idea that has worked with your class, a hobby you can share. The key here is to keep it simple.
You will also have our team providing a range of ideas and activities. Lunch and dinner will also be included, and of course, we will consider any dietary requirements.
The light at night in October is fantastic, and we will make the most of this while we spend time caring for ourselves. Watching the stars from the hot tub is quite a magical moment; we may even be able to have a wee campfire!
Sunday morning will arrive with another breakfast and a stretch. The area around Lagganlia is stunning, and we will be making the most of it. Though we also appreciate lots of staff only have concrete jungles so we will also explore how these can be used to support outdoor learning.
Lunchtime will be here before we know it, and it will be time to head home feeling refreshed, revived and reinvigorated.
