Is this Adventure for me?
If you're 13-15 years old, looking for a challenging experience in the wild and craving a break from screens and social media, this is the right Outward Bound adventure for you.
All Outward Bound Adventures have some things in common.
You’ll enjoy authentic outdoor activities in National Parks and wild places, guided by highly-qualified instructors.
It will be a path of discovery. A chance to have fun, be curious and make new friends. Before you know it, you’ll be stepping outside your comfort zone and discovering your talents.
Your confidence will grow and you'll learn how to believe in yourself.See what you'll do
Spend 5 days (4 nights) away from home at one of our residential centres in an awe-inspiring location. If you're aged 10-12 years old, you'll experience at least one evening around a campfire where you'll eat under the stars and share stories with your group. If you're 13-17 years old, you'll get to experience an overnight expedition where you'll camp in the wild, either in a mountain hut, a tent or bivvying under the stars.
This could be your first wilderness experience or first time away from home on your own.
We're here to give you a supportive, but challenging and adventurous experience. Making the most of the natural environment, you'll learn to stretch yourself outside of your comfort zone by tackling a range of challenging outdoor activities.
This is a 5-day adventure like no other. Spend time in the great outdoors, make new friends and develop new skills like independence and personal responsibility. Go home a stronger, more confident version of yourself and learn the most important lesson you could ever learn: to believe in yourself.

- A fun and challenging adventure in the wild

5 Day Adventure Week
Aberdovey Adventure week
I spent a week at Aberdovey and loved every minute of it! I did so many things that it’s difficult to pick a favourite activity but if I had to it would be all the water sports! Camping out in a log cabin was an amazing experience and feel quite chuffed to have had this opportunity to stay at Aberdovey. I recommend everyone try an Outward Bound experience.
