At Blue Coast, we're passionate about offering unique coastal learning experiences for school and youth groups.
Our activities are designed to align with Curriculum for Excellence outcomes, building resilience and confidence in our participants, as well as teaching them how to be responsible citizens in the marine and beach environments.
We aim to support GIRFEC values and promote SHANARRI wellbeing indicators, fostering personal growth and physical and mental health. Time for reflection is included in all of our sessions, allowing the participants to reflect on their success and to observe that not only did they have fun but that the experience contributed to an increased sense of physical & mental wellbeing.
We hope to encourage calm positive reflection and give young people tools that will benefit them long after they have spent time with us. The three main outcomes we aim to achieve are:
• Increased resilience & confidence
• Improved ability to form positive relationships, developing a sense of belonging
• Understanding of beach safety & the marine environment
We are happy to offer standalone sessions combining different activities, or to offer a regular program for your group over a period of time. If you are interested in joining us, please fill out the form below and we will be in touch.
We provide full risk assessments / operating procedures for all activities, and hold insurance cover which ensures we meet all local education authority guidelines.
