Sport Aberdeen ramps up adventure offering in north-east
The merger of two popular outdoor activity services operated by award-winning charity Sport Aberdeen, was celebrated this week, broadening the range of outdoor adventurous activities available in Aberdeen and providing an enhanced experience for all.
Adventure Aberdeen and Aberdeen Snowsports Centre now come under the newly re-launched ‘Adventure Aberdeen’ brand; with the snowsports facility at Garthdee known going forward as ‘Adventure Aberdeen Snowsports’.
Bringing the outdoor adventure offerings together enables Sport Aberdeen to create even more opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to get active, with outdoor learning and participation opportunities available within a community setting.
Encompassing a range of exciting outdoor and adventurous activities from venues in the heart of the city, Kingswells, and Cromdale in Speyside, Adventure Aberdeen will offer a wide variety of dynamic, inclusive and accessible activities including skiing, snowboarding, mountain biking, climbing, hillwalking and water-based sports.
Tony Dawson, Sport Aberdeen Chairman, commented:
“Bringing these fantastic outdoor adventurous activity services together to join forces is a very exciting move for Sport Aberdeen and the whole of the north-east, giving people the opportunity to enjoy utilising the outdoor environment and develop new skills.
“Our venues in Kingswells and Garthdee offer group activities, lessons, holiday camps, parties, and public sessions, while our recently refurbished residential facility in Cromdale offers schools, community and business groups an exciting opportunity to enjoy some of the most spectacular water and land-based activity sites in Scotland.
“Sport Aberdeen is committed to inspiring more people to get active more often and it is my hope that everyone, from budding outdoor activity enthusiasts to those who have never taken to the slopes or donned a pair of walking boots, will take advantage of this brilliant offering on our doorstep.”
