Comunn na Gàidhlig (CnaG) recently organised two camps for young Gaels between the ages of 8 and 12.

The first camp was held in Scaladale, Harris, where 23 youngsters attended and the second camp was held at Dun Floddigary, Skye, where 26 youngsters attended.

The youngsters came from across Scotland, including the Western Isles, Inverness, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Stirling and Islay.

At both camps, the youngsters enjoyed an exciting, stimulating, fun-packed week-long program of activities as diverse as cutting peat, coasteering, visiting museums and other places of interest, various arts and crafts and many other sports and activities.

What makes these camps really worthwhile and enjoyable is that the youngsters are together, having fun, enjoying a wide range of activities and making new friends.

They are also doing all this in Gaelic, hugely improving their fluency in the language and increasing their confidence in using it.

The camps are run by CnaG workers.
