--- Due to Covid-19, the centre is currently closed and we are not currently accepting volunteers. ----
Chris and Debbie Williams lead the team which runs the Outdoor Centre as a Christian Outdoor Learning residential centre – our team lives as a Christian community regularly meeting together for prayer and fellowship/worship. The centre is situated in the heart of Glencoe Village spectacularly set amongst the majestic mountains, lochs and glens of Glencoe - famous for being one of the most beautiful natural landscapes in the Scottish highlands.
As a charity we raise funds that enable us to offer bursaries each year to those for whom the cost of participation is out of reach and to assist with the Scottish Attainment Challenge. Groups from less privileged areas of the country, including many children who've never had the opportunity to experience the beauty of their own countryside nor even leave their own cities, are those to whom we most wish to provide such opportunities for.
We offer a wide range of outdoor activities (on the water and in the hills) which are both fun and challenging whilst helping to develop the individual.
