Field Studies Council – Adventures in the Scottish Islands Residential – August 2024

A five-day residential for young people aged 16–18 that have a love of the outdoors, the adventurous activities that it can offer and an interest in working to conserve it.?

Throughout the week you will take part in a variety of activities to discover and explore the Isle of Cumbrae, Wee Cumbrae and Bute.

Challenges might include climbing, snorkelling, raft building, and an overnight camping expedition. A key aspect of the residential will be your conservation day, where you will conduct work to conserve an area on the Isle of Cumbrae.

Our residentials also give you the chance to develop a range of transferable skills. These types of skills help across many areas of life and are particularly good for including in job or education applications. Here are some of the skills that are likely to be covered in this residential:

– Communicating with others
– Working as a team
– Managing your time
– Taking the lead
– Resilience
– Reliability
– Keeping focused
