Get into Summer

Welcome to ‘Get into Summer 2021’ – a summer full of activities for children right across the Scottish Borders.

Supported by the Scottish Borders Council and Scottish Government funding, the national ‘Get into Summer’ campaign will help children, young people and families reconnect and reengage with their local communities and the environment and provide opportunities to socialise following a challenging period for everyone due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Get into Summer is for toddlers through to P7, with more opportunities for activity to be announced over the coming weeks.

Bookings are now live!
