Callander Youth Project Wildlife Weekend programme

CYP Wildlife Weekend programme takes place every Sunday for 6 weeks beginning April 24th. This link contains more information on each individual activity session as well the sign up process.

The programme is open to any young person from P6 to S3 however an enthusiasm for animals is recommended given the nature of the block. Following feedback from the previous weekend block, parents/guardians can sign young people up for individual sessions and are not required to sign up for the entire block. There are limited spaces available therefore we will open the sign-up window until 10pm on Monday 18th April before randomly allocating spaces based on drawing names – we hope this gives everyone a fair chance of involvement. We will notify everyone who has been assigned a space some point on Tuesday 19th April.

Support Thornhill in the Community Lottery

Draws every Saturday.
Sign up & buy your tickets online to help TCT fundraising.
