Get Involved @ Longcraig

We are always on the lookout for keen volunteers to help out at the Centre.

If you are interested please get in touch by emailing or phone 0131 510 7970 and leave a message. One of our team will get back to you for a chat about how we can make use of your skills.

We are not just looking for people who can Kayak or Sail. If you would like to learn, then we can train you, or refresh skills if they are a bit rusty. We also need people to help with building upkeep and duty managers/wardens to help run sessions on land.

If you can spare a few hours on an evening or weekend during the summer months (or know someone who can) drop us a line and we will get in touch.

Explorers @ Longcraig

Following the success of the partnership with the Explorer Unit who have been supporting Longcraig over the winter and subsequently had 11 Explorers participate in a start Sailing course, we invite feedback from other Explorer Units who wish to make water activities and Centre Support a part of their programme. Please contact us for further details of how you can join up and add this to your Unit programme as well as learning new skills, satisfying challenge requirements, and fulfilling service activity all at the same time!
