Summer Fun for Kids and Families at Loch Lomond Shores

Summer Fun for Kids & Families at Loch Lomond Shores - July & August

Outdoor Play Sessions

Get the kids away from their tablets and out into the great outdoors this summer, with organised outdoor play sessions.

Outdoor education experts Under the Trees have created a series of 90 minute or two hour play sessions suitable for either under 6's or 7-13 year olds. Think storytelling, den building, bug hunting and more.

Sessions are on Mondays and Wednesdays from 16 July until 6 August. Monday sessions are for 7-13 year olds, and the Wednesday sessions for the under 6's. No two sessions are the same, so feel free to come to as many as you like!

Each session costs £5 (payable at time of booking), and should be booked in advance. Parents don’t have to stay for the 7 and above sessions but will need to fill in a consent form. Parents of the under 6s will be required to stay (adults go free when accompanying a child under 6).

Booking is online at  (all dates) or see the individual booking links below for specific sessions. Enquiries can be made to Jess on 07854 490 550 or
