More about us

The Ocean Vertical Adventure Camp

The gateway to adventure for curious young minds!

The Ocean Vertical Adventure Camp is for 8 – 13 year olds, and a great place to meet new friends and experience real adventure, while building new skills and confidence with our super experienced and qualified instructors.

Our Easter Camp runs from April 2nd – 11th between 08:30-13:00. This camp is set to include a mix of water and land-based activities, with one full duration Ocean Vertical adventure activity per day, and packed with fun ice breaker and team building games either side.

What is the Easter Adventure Camp?

We’ve designed an action-packed camp just for young adventurers. Our Adventure Camps are led by experienced and highly qualified adventure guides and outdoor activity instructors. Their aim is to enable young adventurers to gain confidence and life skills in adventure settings, get stuck in and make awesome friendships.

The Easter camp is our latest addition to the adventure camp dates. Our thick wetsuits, gloves and hoods will keep the young adventurers warm while doing a water activity like Surfing, Coasteering or SUP/Paddle Boarding and we have the options to change activities to land-based activities if the weather is too cold/rough.

For example, Archery, Axe Throwing or Rock Climbing. Adventure Camp days have one full duration Ocean Vertical adventure activity per day, with fun ice breaker and team building games either side.

How do I book a space for my Young Adventurer?

Where is the OV Easter Adventure Camp?

Our camps are created for real adventure, outside in natural environment. Whether it’s the rugged coastline of East Lothian for Coasteering, old Volcanic crags for Rock Climbing or beautiful bays for Surfing, we want young adventurers to learn the necessary skills, and gain the confidence, to thrive in these environments.

The Adventure Camps start and finish at Our Base near Dunbar in East Lothian. It’s the perfect place for an adventure camp, being a stones throw from a range of brilliant outdoor activity locations with awesome chill out areas with sofas positioned by our wood-burning stove.

The location of our base does require our instructors to drive too and from each activity location, this is done in our fully insured company vehicles

Ocean Vertical Adventure Customer Reviews

Our 11yr old son had a full day summer adventure camp, paddleboarding, archery, coasteering, he had a great time, proper outdoors fun & action packed activities, great guides & crew, awesome set up at the base.
Enjoyed the photos being sent to us, good memories. Thanks Ocean Vertical Team.

Gus | East Lothian

Absolutely brilliant! That about sums it up. Send my two eldest boys, along with two friends for a day of Summer Adventures and it’s fair to say they would go every day of the summer given half a chance. Jacob and his team are a fantastic bunch, kids had an amazing time and I wouldn’t hesitate to book again. Their base on the edge of Dunbar is a hidden gem too.

Phil | East Lothian

Thoroughly enjoyed another trip mountaineering to stunning Glen Coe with the highly experienced team at Ocean Vertical. With transparent and on-going risk assessment, Stevie and Adrian strive to provide their adventurers with the best experience in the conditions available – adapting where necessary with their extensive knowledge of the area. Whether it’s been paddle boarding, climbing or mountaineering in Scotland, I have always had a safe and truly rewarding experience. Can’t wait to get out with them again!

Ruth | East Lothian

What a adventure climbing with Ocean Vertical in Glen Coe!. Not being an experienced climber the guides led us to the top of a very snowy mountain with knowledge experience and skill. Mesmerised by the views I am already looking to book my next trip. There is a whole other world in those mountains – epic day. They also provided transport, ice axes, crampons and boots!

Sarah | North Berwick

Ocean Vertical is brought together by people who live and breathe the mountain and outdoor life to the full extent. I have spent an absolutely amazing time with Stevie and Adrian and Ocean Vertical climbing in the Scottish mountains.

The practical and technical information they pass on to people is truly their passion, and it is felt on the journey, in the mountains and their lifestyle. That you Ocean Vertical – 5 stars :]

Dianaliis | Estonia

Amazing day out winter mountaineering in Scotland in the snow with Stevie and Adrian yesterday. We learned loads of new techniques including how to use crampons and an ice axe! Feeling more confident in managing Scottish winter conditions and looking forward to getting another day out with them soon.

Ciara | Edinburgh

Had a fantastic day out learning basic mountaineering under the tutorage of Stevie and Adrian. Lots of knowledge shared on key skills for the mountain, as well as having a go with crampons and ice axe for the first time.

Felt safe at all times and throughout the day the guys did a fantastic job make sure the pace was suitable for the whole group.

Brilliant value for money, will definitely do again very soon and can’t recommend enough!

Pete | Haddington

I was working in Edinburgh and planned to do some walking with a group of friends. A colleague recommended Ocean Vertical. I called but they were booked out, had a call-back and they coordinated a mountain trip for us!
A day later, I was standing 3,500 feet up on Stob Coire nan Lochan in snow and ice looking out over the most incredible scenery in Glen Coe, a brilliant trip that I couldn’t have accessed without Stevie and Adrian who were fabulous guides. Totally recommend!

Angus | London

Fantastic day out with Stevie and Adrian today climbing Stob Ghabhar. Scottish winter mountaineering at its best! These guys really know their stuff and I felt in very safe hands for my first venture up to this height in winter.

Amazing experience and I learned to use an ice axe and crampons! to be repeated! Highly recommended!

Caroline | Edinburgh

I thought we were mad getting up for a 3.30am start to go winter hillwalking! I now know why we did it. Watching the winter sunrise over Glen Coe was pretty special. Would I do it again? I’m already booked in for my next trip!

Emily | Edinburgh

Enjoyed a great day in early January with Stevie and Adrian bagging 3 Munro’s – Ben Lawers, An Stuc and Beinn Ghlas.

Great to have the knowledge to take us on the less trodden route to the top of Ben Lawers, help negotiate the atmospheric conditions on the day and give us options for climbs. Thanks, guys! Looking forward to the next winter mountaineering in Scotland trip!

Gary | East Lothian

What a day! Spectacular weather and views. Lots of snow and it was freezing! First time with an ice axe and crampons. The guys at Ocean Vertical were brilliant. We talked about planning, decision-making, navigation and how to use our technical equipment – I now know how to fit a crampon! Huge thanks and will be back!

Karen | Edinburgh

Just back from a day with Stevie and Adrian. Both are masters of there trade. Making sure everyone was comfortable and understanding the terrain. I felt in very safe hands on my first winter mountaineering day out with the boys.

I would highly recommend Ocean Vertical to everyone thinking of winter mountaineering in Scotland. Both guys’ are very knowledgeable of mountains and the surrounding areas. I’ll definitely be back out with Ocean Vertical very soon!

Best Hogmanay Ever!!!!

Ended 2019 by climbing up Stob Ghabhar in the Black Mount region close to Glen Coe with @ocean_vertical and @etjo17 and I loved it from start to finish. The weather was clear and crisp, making for phenomenal views for miles around. Our guide @the_stevie_boyle was brilliant – full of knowledge, encouraging, and general all round top bloke! They got us there and back from East Lothian and provided us with all the kit. If you haven’t already been on an @ocean_vertical experience then I highly recommend you do…you won’t regret it!
