Funding your summer adventure

Did you know that we are a charity? We work hard to make the outdoors accessible to as many young people as possible through our bursary and scholarship schemes.

Thanks to the generosity of our donors and corporate supporters over 70% of our participants receive financial support, enabling them to develop themselves further through an Outward Bound adventure.

That means we could support you in covering the cost of your course*.

7 DAY COURSES – Up to 30% funding available

Our Adventure Fund can award bursaries of up to 30% of a Discover Adventure or Serious Adventure course fee.

Whilst the Adventure Fund and Skills for Life Award Scholarship can give you a great head start in covering the cost of your summer, there’s still a little way to go. One of the best ways to do this is through fundraising.

We encourage you to fundraise towards your course as much as possible. It can help to get you in the right frame of mind for the summer and it's also a thoroughly rewarding process.

*As we're a UK charity, we're only able to support UK resident/passport holders.
