Hostelling Scotland have worked in partnership with In Your Element for many years to offer schools and youth groups the opportunity to try different outdoor activities, and to build programmes which are suited to the needs of each group. The feedback has always been brilliant, with the activities often a real highlight of each trip. The instructors are great building rapport with a wide range of young people and encouraging them to step outside their comfort zones and try new things.
We have used In Your Element for several years and have always been impressed by their enthusiasm, helpfulness and local knowledge. Being taken round the islands of Loch Maree and watching the sea eagles swooping above will be remembered for a long time by our pupils.
We had a fantastic couple of days – the children thoroughly enjoyed the activities, as did the staff! A great team!
