If you’re 10-12 years old looking for an authentic adventure in nature and want to challenge yourself, this is the Outward Bound Adventure for you.


What you'll be doing

No two Outward Bound adventures are the same. Your group’s appetite for adventure will shape what you do each day.

Taking journeys into the wild and exploring the natural environment. Stretch your comfort zone with activities like hiking, canoeing, gorge scrambling, abseiling, rock climbing, rafting, kayaking and wild swimming.

So whilst we can’t tell you exactly what you’ll be doing, we do guarantee you will have fun and be challenged.


Day 1

Your adventure will start with a bang and kick off with our infamous jog and dip. This is exactly what it says it is – you will jump or run into the lake or sea, catapulting you straight into the Outward Bound experience from the very start.

Next, you’ll explore the grounds of the centre where you’ll call home for the next 7 days. You’ll meet your group and your instructor, who will let you know what you can expect on your adventure.

Soak up the anticipation of what’s ahead and get to know your fellow adventurers.

Day 2

Make sure you eat your breakfast because you will need your energy today! It’s time for you to discover the outdoors and go exploring in the wild.

You’ll be immersed straight into nature by going on an all-day expedition through the wilderness. Your journey will take you over land and water, where you’ll engage in challenging activities along the way, such as rowing or kayaking across wild lakes and lochs.

You’ll reach your camp and sleep in tents overnight. Huddle around the campfire and get to know your group better with food cooked outside, followed by marshmallows and

hot chocolate.

Day 3

Wake up in the wild and get ready to embark on another invigorating experience in the outdoors.

You will head back to your centre, but this is Outward Bound, so your journey will again be an adventure like no other. You will reach new heights by hiking over mountains or climbing some of the tallest peaks in the UK. You might even throw your rucksack into a canoe and paddle your way back on water.

No matter what, you’ll appreciate your dinner and shower when you’re back at centre!

Day 4

It’s halfway through your adventure so there’s no better time to embrace a brand new challenge.

You’ll push yourself that bit further and see what you can really do in the outdoors. Another day of adventurous activities await. You might strap yourself into a harness and helmet and tackle rock climbing or abseil down a spectacular peak.

There’s no doubt you’ll continue into the evening sharing stories of your day with your friends.

Day 5

Head out on an all day adventure. You’ll explore and discover new areas, and today gives you and your group the perfect opportunity to push yourself out of your comfort zone. You might return to the water and take a leap of faith with cliff jumping and wild swimming.

Come back to centre to share stories with your friends in front of the campfire.

Day 6

Remember, this is Outward Bound so your journey will be filled with challenging activities as it has been all week. You’ll instructor will also set you new challenges, giving you the opportunity to practise your independence skills.

This day will be your final full day of adventure, so make the most of it!

Day 7

This might be the final day of your adventure, but the energy levels don’t drop.

With your new friends, you will work together to solve a challenge, helping you to realise what you are truly capable of and give you the chance to put your newfound skills into practice.

Before you leave, pick up your certificate and put it on display when you return home – you will feel you have achieved something monumental this week.

What an adventure

Had an amazing week at Aberdovey, I had some fantastic experiences and challenges. Made some friends for life! The instructors where brilliant, we were looked after really well, the food was lovely and the centre was great. Already organising next years adventure, and I can’t wait :)

Do It!

I had an amazing time at Loch Eil! I tried every adventure that I could as I didn't want to miss out or regret not having tried later. The team spirit, camaraderie and encouragement from everyone including the coaches was amazing. You'll make friends, have fun and surprise yourself.
