"It was the best week of my life. Such fun and I made new friends. It was awesome!" Samantha, aged 9.

Summer day camp in East Lothian 2022 – Yellowcraigs.

8th -11th August 2022

Instinctively Wild has been running summer day camps in East Lothian for the last nine years, as such we are very experienced at knowing what works well. Over that time we have developed a very good relationship with the Countryside Rangers from East Lothian Council, who’s permission we have to use the site.

We are especially looking forward to running our outdoor summer camp at Yellowcraigs this year! We cannot wait!!

On our summer camps we do all kinds really fun stuff, such as rock-pooling, bushcraft, tool work, wide games, environmental art, outdoor cooking, sensory experiences, animal tracking. Absolutely loads of fun is had by all!

Its for 8-14yr olds and runs from 9-5pm for four days, although you can book individual days if you wish.

Run by Pete and Graeme – Directors of Instinctively Wild and with the help of committed and experienced volunteers. Everyone working with Instinctively Wild (Directors included) have been thoroughly vetted – including PVG checks. We have a high staffing ratio and when doing tool work or fire the ratio drops to 1:1 or 1:3.

Are you staying in Edinburgh? It is only 45 mins to Yellowcraigs from Edinburgh. Furthermore if your planning on going to Fringe by the Sea in North Berwick – Yellowcraigs is only 15mins away.
