Take control of the summer holiday and achieve something remarkable. From rowing across lakes and camping in the wild, to lighting fires and building shelters, Outward Bound empowers young people to conquer mountains—both real and metaphorical.
Every summer from June to September, we deliver a range of 7 and 19-day adventures for 11 to 19 year olds. An all-inclusive experience, these adventures are designed to leave participants feeling more confident, more determined and better prepared for whatever life may throw at them in the future.Choose an adventure
