The Kids Glen
presented by GSR

For all kids ages 6-12 accompanied by an adult

kid caberThe Kids Glen is a place for kids to play, run around, get their faces painted, do some fun activities, experience the same events the Athletes do, and a whole lot more!

Kids should be sure to pick up their Saltwater Highland Games Passport at the Kids Glen Tent when they arrive. Then, as they explore the Games, they can ask to get their passport signed at lots of difference places they visit along the way - like the Clan Village, Celtic Marketplace, and of course each of the events in the Kids Glen. Not only will they meet plenty of interesting people and kids along the way, but they'll learn about the cool Celtic heritages. 

And of course, you're never too young to start aspiring to the Scottish Heavy Athletics competitions, so there's always some kid-size versions of the athletic events to heave around - including the caber (that giant pole that the big guys turn!).

Games include:

  • Caber Toss
  • Stone Toss
  • Hammer Throw
  • 3-Legged Sack Race
  • One-on-One Tug-O-War
  • Fight-A-Knight
  • Archery
  • Sheep Toss
  • Stone Toss
  • Kids Kilted Run
  • Bounce Castle
  • Inflatable Obstacle Course
  • 9-Hole Miniature Golf Course
  • and much more!

For Kids under Age 6

There's always drawing and coloring materials for the younger kids to capture the moment and display their creative talents. Create a Sword & Shield and join us each hour as the kids can show off their works of art in our Parade led by one of our pipers. Visit the Activities Tent and if they're into wearable art, they can get their face painted with their choice of all kinds of Scottish designs. Check out our Scavenger Hunt as well as have fun in one of our Awesome Inflatables!
