WHAT IS THE YOUTH OUTDOOR CHALLENGE?

A 2-day trail-finding event, for teams of three or four 13-18 year olds, who navigate around a countryside course of around 12km each day and also camp and cook for themselves overnight - - see more >
 
Teams are given a pre-marked route map with questions and have to find set points and answers and return within a set time.

Teams have to wear and/or carry mandatory items of clothing and equipment - not their camping/ cooking items as the campsite is fixed for the weekend.

WHERE IT IS HELD?

At the Speyside Trust Badaguish Centre near Aviemore - teams arrive and camp on Friday evening - the event is over the Saturday and Sunday.

The campsite has plenty of facilities and everyone taking part can try FREE activities on the Saturday night – past year’s activities have included WOW balling, bungee running and archery. On Sunday when everyone is finished, there is a free BBQ.

WHY IS IT HELD?

The Outdoor Challenge is a sponsored event, where the teams are asked to raise a minimum of £60 per team for Speyside Trust..

The Centre provides respite care and activity holidays for children and adults with special needs from all over Scotland. Previous Outdoor Challenge events have raised funds for a special shower chair and a wheelchair bike. Teams also get to meet new friends, learn outdoor skills, enjoy the stunning scenery of the Cairngorms, try activities and have fun whilst supporting a very worthy cause.

PRIZES

Everyone who takes part gets a prize as well as free activities and BBQ and there are also awards for:

  • The 'Quickest' Team home
  • The 'Best Sponsorship Raised' Team
  • Special Endeavours
Activity holidays for children and adults with special needs
Specially adapted bikes give so much pleasure
