Activities at the Kastle

There are always lots of fun activities to do at Blair and this year is no exception! We have lots ideas from our leaders including the Hill Team, Bushcraft, Circus Skills, Crafts, and Lawn Bowls.

When you do join in with any of the activities, remember to ask permission and get an adult to help you, especially if you’re using fire or sharp tools, or you might make a mess!

And share your pictures and videos with us on social media, if you like, using #BlairEverywhere.
