Some other out of school services and programmes such as the Activity Camp at Perth College, Circus School, Art Camp, Adventure Weeks @ Willowgate, Glens Adventure Weeks in Crieff, Young Designers Summer School and events at Pitlochry Festival Theatre offer multiple days or full weeks.

There is also a huge variety of single-day and part-day options including events at the Black Watch Museum, activities at Wild Sparks in Alyth & Dunkeld, Wee Adventures in Aberfeldy, activities at Comrie Croft as well as Live Active sports camps, adventure camps and fun sessions.  Kids Week in Crieff also offers a wide range of individual events.
