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 ADVENTURES – Adventure Fund

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

Providing you are a UK resident/passport holder you are eligible to apply. You can apply online, or download our application form and return to us via post or email.


Visit our Scholarship page to claim or apply for an Outward Bound Scholarship worth up to £849.50 towards a Skills for Life Award place.



Whilst the Adventure Fund and Outward Bound Scholarship can give you a great head start in covering the cost of your summer adventure, there’s still some way to go. One of the best ways to reach your goal 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.

*An Outward Bound Scholarship cannot be claimed in conjunction with other financial offers, discounts or charitable bursaries, unless otherwise agreed with a member of our Summer Adventures team.

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