Pentlands Activity Camps
What we are: PAC offers holiday adventure and activity for school aged children (5+) and young teenagers. We are based in Peeblesshire in the beautiful Scottish Borders, near the village of West Linton, only 15 miles south of Edinburgh. Each child participates in a wide range of activities, both outdoors and indoors, run by the PAC team. The emphasis is on having fun, excitement and new experiences in a healthy, positive and safe environment. The ethos of PAC is to make each child feel unique and valued, with the age sensitive programme allowing the child to grow in self-confidence and social skills. Our venues have been specially selected for their rural locations and offer an extensive natural playground where children have the freedom to explore and play.
Who runs it: Established in 2005, PAC is organised and run by Lindsay Mann, Sally Brown and Ian Reid. All are local residents who, between them, have over forty years professional experience of working with children in a variety of childcare settings.
When we run it: This year’s PAC camps will be run on a day basis from Monday to Friday during the Easter and Summer holidays. The structured activity programme will run from 9 am to 5 pm – an “extra time” service is also available before and after these times.
