SUMMIT

Here you'll find some of our most adventurous programmes for 13-17 year olds. 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 also have some independence in nature and are now seeking your next challenge and crave the opportunity to discover more about yourself.

Over 14 days you will face high levels of personal challenge and have the unique opportunity to lead your own expedition into the wilderness, exploring what the UK outdoors really has to offer. This is where you'll tackle both metaphorical and physical mountains. There's no better place to enhance your personal skills like problem-solving and teamwork, and deepen your social and emotional awareness. In the end, you will know what you're worth - you will leave Outward Bound with friends for life and a new level of confidence that will change your life.

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.

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.

So, whilst we can't tell you exactly what you'll be doing, we can guarantee you will have an adventure like no other exploring some of the remotest parts of the UK and be challenged.

What you'll experience

  • A unique and challenging adventure to push your limits
  • A journey of self-discovery
  • Make new friends that last a lifetime
  • Practice and develop skills for your future, like problem solving
  • Explore the remotest parts of the UK
  • Be self-reliant, and become more confident and resilient
  • Stand out from the crowd by achieving something different
  • Time to connect with nature, away from the distractions of life
