Adventure Centre for Education (ACE)

BY David Doig Foundation

Adventure Centre for Education (ACE) has developed a wide programme of tailored outdoor activities across South Ayrshire, creating opportunities for young people at risk of exclusion from school to participate in adventure sports, which helps broaden their visions and aspirations.  Outdoor activities promote active learning through personal experience, challenges and teamwork, they are fun and an adventure within boundaries. They help develop intellectual, physical, spiritual, social and moral development, building self-confidence and self-esteem which are key to young people’s development.  The David Doig Foundation funding will encourage participants - aged between 11 and 18 who are struggling in a classroom environment - to take greater responsibility for their own learning and help them set their own goals with the aim of their new skills being transferred into their everyday life.
