Why an Outward Bound course?

There are so many reasons to choose an Outward Bound course for your summer but here are our top three:

Whether you're here for one week or three, you're guaranteed a genuine adventure. Most of the time, you'll be exploring incredible wilderness environments, soaking up brand new places that you can't even imagine. You'll find yourself paddling across a lagoon in the Scottish Highlands or traversing a waterfall in the Lake District and much more. You'll be heading to real rock climbing venues, not indoor climbing walls. That's the Outward Bound difference.

Outward Bound isn't just about doing something different with your summer, it's about developing the skills that will set you up for life:

  • 89% of participants say their course has made them more confident in social situations
  • 85% felt more independent as a result of their Outward Bound experience
  • 94% said they now felt better prepared to tackle challenges*

*Based on responses from 100 participants on 3 week courses, surveyed 3 months after their course.

Absolutely everything you'll need for your adventure is included in just one simple price - from kit, bedding, activities, insurance and meals to a return coach transfer. All you need to bring is a small amount of personal spending money.
