5 reasons why people pick Outward Bound as their summer camp of choice:

1) Real adventures

From the kids who scroll through their phones daydreaming about mountains, rivers and moonlit campfires to curious teens who grew up climbing trees and exploring their neighbourhoods, our typical participant has one thing in common - they're all hungry for adventure.

Our summer adventures are for those young people who want to spend more time watching sunsets than Netflix, and they will. From rowing across lakes and camping in the wild, to lighting fires and building shelters, wilderness challenge is at the heart of everything we do.

> Choose from 7 day and 19 day adventures.

2) International friends

Last year over 30% of our participants travelled from overseas, bringing culture, variety and an international twist to every one of our adventures.

3) Spectacular places

Plane (1)

Each of our centres are set in awe-inspiring locations; close to lochs, lakes, the sea and, of course, the mountains. They feel like they're a million miles away from civilisation, and because of that they may seem like a long way to travel, but fear not! Our price includes a free coach transfer service from a nearby transport hub (Glasgow, Penrith, Manchester, Birmingham), making them much easier to get to.

Choose from the stunning Welsh Coast, to the English Lake District and the wild Highlands of Scotland.
