GO OUTWARD BOUND NEXT SUMMER

 Why not do something different next summer? Discover new ways to have fun. Make new friends. Go on an Outward Bound adventure.

 Jam-packed with activities and challenges, it’s never boring on an Outward Bound programme and you’ll be doing things you never thought possible! Intrigued?

 Pick from a range of 7-day adventures to full-blown 19-day expeditions, depending on your age:

  • Discover Adventure (11-13)
  • Serious Adventure (13-19)
  • Skills for Life Award (15-19)
  • Ultimate Expedition (15-19)

THE ADVENTURE FUND IS NOW OPEN

What’s more, as a charity, we believe money should not stand in the way of you going on a summer camp. Last summer, over 50% of our Summer Adventures received funding.

So, if you want to come but feel cost may stop you, why not apply to The Adventure Fund? Whether you’re short a tenner, a hundred quid or more - we can help!

WHAT IS OUTWARD BOUND?

 The Outward Bound Trust is an educational charity that helps young people defy their limitations through learning and adventures in the wild. We help teach young people the most important lesson they could ever learn: to believe in themselves.

Every year during the summer we take 11-19 years olds out into the wild. This is where you can explore new talents, step outside your comfort zone and be more than you think.
