Summer Funding

Less scrolling More sunsets

We are excited to announce that we now have additional funding for 5-Day Basecamp and 7-Day Ridge courses at our Lake District and Snowdonia based centres.

Complete the short form below and we'll be in touch to discuss funding.

5 Reasons to go Outward Bound this summer:

1. Proper adventures:

More than just a summer camp, it's an opportunity to go hiking, rock climbing, paddling, sailing, star gazing, wild camping and even beach barbecuing! We've got adventure nailed.

2. Friends for life:

You'll meet new people from outside your friendship group and make new friends from across the country and around the world.

3. Wild places:

It's a chance to explore the stunning lakes, forests and (of course) mountains that surround our centres.

And if you're worried about getting there, you can book a (return) coach transfer with pick-up points in Manchester, Birmingham, Penrith, Stirling and Glasgow.

4. A good price:

As a charity we're not interested in making money, just changing lives. So there's only one price and no hidden extras which means your food, accommodation, bedding and equipment is all covered.

And we can help anyone who applies to our Adventure Fund - at the moment, we can offer up to 75% funding towards the cost so get in touch!

5. A winning formula:

We've been knocking around for over 80 years. In that time we've learned a thing or two about outdoor adventures, so we're able to give you an experience you won't get from an ordinary summer camp or school.
