Ocean Vertical Adventures

In order to broaden our range of outdoor activities and formative experiences in our wonderful location on the East Lothian coastline, we are looking into the opportunity to work with Ocean Vertical, a locally-based ethical adventure company. Molly and her team will run a series of sessions this term as a trial. Stand-up paddle boarding, rock climbing and bushcraft skills opportunities will be offered to groups of 12 children at a time on a number of Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday afternoons this term at a cost of £30 per child per 3 hour session. Please see below for the schedule: 

Saturday 8th October - Paddle Boarding at Danskine Loch 

Wednesday 12th October  - Bushcraft at Ocean Vertical 

Saturday 29th October - Paddle Boarding at Danskine Loch 

Sunday 30th October - Rock Climbing at Traprain Law 

Wednesday 2nd November  - Rock Climbing at Traprain Law 

School fixtures will take priority, but the hope is that the timings will allow for everyone to attend at least one session this term. Plans will evolve as the partnership develops, but the idea is that we will be able to benefit from the expertise and equipment of this professional outfit to ensure that the children get outstanding tuition in a safe environment on a regular basis and in a beautiful place. Experiencing Mountain Climbing, Archery and Axe Throwing as well as opportunities to gain First Aid and SUPWise qualifications could be part of the full package in future and these will fit neatly with the aims and objectives of The Belhaven Award.
