The essential details you need to know as a camper - including some very honest truths about summer in Scotland!
30th July - 12th August 2017
Who will be there?
Up to 150 young people aged 12-17 from all over the UK and some from overseas; over 100 staff.
Where will I stay?
In groups of approx. 15 in a small marquee with two staff.
Is it 'proper' camping?
Not really - beds, blankets, toilets, showers, some laundry, all meals, etc. are provided.
Do I have to be 'sporty' to enjoy it?
No; SEP tries to provide an all round experience of sporting, craft and social experiences that young people may not otherwise have opportunity to try. Inevitably in an outdoor setting many of these are physical in nature but by no means are all of the activities sporting. Over many years former campers have told us that the most valuable aspect of SEP for them was simply spending time together and making new friends.
Do I have to be a Christian to attend?
No, campers come from all kinds of backgrounds. Some are Christians, many are not. All we ask is that you respect the camp's ethos and have an open mind.
How much does it cost?
Campers applying before April 30th = £225
Campers applying after April 30th = £275
This includes all food, tuition and residential costs.
Some scholarship funds may be available on request.
What are you not telling me about?
It's not always sunny in Scotland in the summer!
There is plenty of local wildlife - especially 'midgies'!
The water in Loch Lomond is cold, really cold.
It's not for everyone - we do include non-sporting activities in the programme but it is an activity camp.
