For 16-17 year olds who actively enjoy outdoor experiences and camping, and want to challenge themselves on a longer adventure away with multi-day expeditions.




You'll spend 14 days (13 nights) away from home, experience multi-day adventures and nights out in the wild away on overnight expeditions. To take on the challenge of a Summit Adventure, you'll already have experience of exploring the outdoors and camping in the wild. You may have been to Outward Bound before or taken on challenges like your Duke of Edinburgh Award.

You'll take journeys into the wild and explore the natural environment. Stretch your comfort zone with activities like hiking, canoeing, gorge scrambling, abseiling, rock climbing, rafting, kayaking and wild swimming.

On this 14-day adventure, you will also plan and go out on a number of adventurous, overnight expeditions. You will seek out what the UK National Parks really have to offer. Explore challenging terrain, sleep under canvas and enjoy being as close to nature as possible.



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

Next, you’ll explore the grounds of the centre where you’ll call home for the next 14 days. You’ll also 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.

DAYS 2 - 4

Make sure you eat your breakfast because you will need your energy over the next few days. It’s time for you to take your first journey into the outdoors and go exploring in the wild.

You’ll be immersed straight into nature by going on an all-day expedition. At the end of Day 2, you will experience your first overnight expedition of the adventure and finish at a wilderness camp. This is where you will pitch your tent, eat under the stars and get to know your instructor and campmates better.

Your journey will continue over land and water where you’ll engage in challenging activities along the way, such as rowing or kayaking across wild lakes and lochs, and hiking over mountains. You will start to build your resilience and form new friendships.

At the end of your first few days of adventure, you will feel on top of the world and have a deeper appreciation for the natural environment.

DAYS 5 - 7

Wake up and get ready to embark on more invigorating outdoor experiences that will help you grow your independence skills.

The next few days will be like no other as you’ll go out deeper into the wild. You may reach new heights by climbing some of the highest peaks in the UK and could get wet when you don your waterproofs and wellies to conquer water-gushing gorges.

You’ll also spend more time closer to nature by embarking on your first two-night overnight expedition of this adventure. You will explore what the UK wilderness really has to offer by reaching wild places on foot and water that aren’t easily accessible any other way.

No matter what, when you return to centre after Day 7, you’ll appreciate your shower and

your bed!

DAY 8 - 10

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 wild.

Your instructor will use the next few days to set you new challenges, giving you the opportunity to practise your independence skills. And remember, this is Outward Bound so the next few days will continue to be packed with challenging outdoor activities.

You may even try something new. You could strap yourself into a harness and helmet and tackle rock climbing or abseil down a spectacular peak. Or you might return to the water and take a leap of faith with cliff jumping and wild swimming.

There’s no doubt you’ll spend the next few days making memories that will last a lifetime.

DAYS 11 - 13

Now is the time to step up and realise what you’re really capable of. It’s your turn to take more ownership of the next two-night overnight expedition. You and your group will have more autonomy and will help to plan and prepare your own adventure to ensure you have an epic and safe time exploring the wild.

You will embark on your own adventurous journey where you’ll scale mountains, hike through valleys and paddle over water to get to your camps each day. What you do will be down to you and your group. And we’re not going to lie, the next few days will stretch you and be challenging.

But you can do this as you’ve already got 10 days of adventure under your belt! You’ll discover your problem-solving skills along the way and build trust with your friends – you will all understand the true value of how important it is to work together as team. At the end of these few days, you will return to centre with sore feet, lots of stories and a huge sense of pride at what you've achieved.

DAY 14

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

You will have the chance to spend time with your friends and work together one last time to solve a challenge. You will see how far you have come and have a moment or two to reflect on the amazing things you have achieved.

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 – and will want to do it all over again!

Best course you could ever do

I love this place so much. I have done this course twice, and each time just gets even better. You make so many friends and long-lasting ones too. The staff can't be any nicer. The hardest part is saying goodbye to your new friends and staff. There are so many fun moments, frustrating moments, and moments your mind says I cant when you can. I can't recommend this course enough to anyone who is up for a challenge.

Amazing summer

This was the most amazing summer I have ever had. From funny to scary moments, I have learnt how to work as a team, some great leadership skills and make long lasting friendships with people I would never have met. I am truly grateful for the experience. Can't wait to join next year again.

The last two weeks was an amazing experience and something I'll never forget. There were many different activities we did every single day, where I saw some of the best views ever. I met people who were just lots of fun and good to be around, who I'll never forget. This was a once in a lifetime experience and I'm so happy that I was able to go on the course.
