Outward Bound Summer Adventures

From kids that scroll through their phones daydreaming of adventures to stressed out teens who worry about their grades, our typical participant has one thing in common - they're all capable of more than they think.


1. Proper adventures

More than just a summer camp, it's an opportunity to go hiking, rock climbing, paddling, sailing, star gazing, wild camping and even beach barbecuing! We've got adventure nailed. > Check out dates, courses and locations

2 . Friends for life

You'll meet new people from outside your friendship group and make new friends from across the country and around the world.

3. Wild Places

It's a chance to explore the stunning lochs, lakes, forests and (of course) mountains that surround our centres.

And if you're worried about getting there, we've got a free (return) coach transfer with pick-up points in Manchester, Birmingham, Penrith and Glasgow.

4. A Good Price

As a charity we're not interested in making money, just changing lives. So there's only one price and no hidden extras which means your food, transport, accommodation, bedding, equipment and insurance is all covered. AND we have the Adventure Fund. > See how we can help fund your adventure

5. A Winning Formula

We've been knocking around for nearly 80 years. In that time we've learned a thing or two about outdoor education, so we're able to give you an experience you won't get from an ordinary summer camp or school. outwardbound.org.uk/summeradventures
