Adventure Breaks

Adventure Breaks offer a great opportunity for young people to enjoy themselves; gaining independence and making great friends.

Working in partnership with Xplore the World, a provider of international summer camps, Poppyscotland offers free week-long adventure breaks to children of men and women who are currently serving, or have served, in the Armed Forces.

The Adventure Breaks package not only includes food and board but also a full activity programme and day trip excursions for the children to look forward to.

Our Break services are available to serving or ex-Servicemen or women and/or their dependants who are in genuine need of a break. Please note that all applications are assessed on a basis of need and means.

For more information please call 0131 550 1557 or email GetHelp@poppyscotland.org.uk
