Think you know what a summer camp with Outward Bound UK is like? Think again:
1) Real adventures
From the kids who scroll through their phones daydreaming about mountains, rivers and moonlit campfires to curious teens who grow 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 who want to spend more time watching sunsets and less time sat on the sofa watching Netflix, and they do. 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.
2) International friends
The British Isles has a lot to offer those who are travelling from overseas. From picture perfect national parks to blockbuster back-drops (Tomb Raider, Star Wars, Harry Potter). What we may lack in sunshine, we certainly make up for in friendliness and hospitality!
Last year over 30% of our participants travelled from overseas, giving everyone the opportunity to forge new international friendships.
3) Spectacular but accessible places
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.

4) Value for money
One price, all inclusive: We only charge what it costs to deliver the programme. We're not interested in making money, just changing lives. So there is only one price and no hidden extras which means food, accommodation, equipment and insurance is all included.
Prices range from £649 for a 7-day adventure to £1,999 for a full 19-days.
Bookings can be made with a deposit of just £165. The remainder of the fee can be paid through instalments, with the full balance required 8-weeks before arrival.
5) Experience and professionalism
Established in 1941 by Kurt Hahn and Lawrence Holt, We've been around for over 75 years and welcomed over 1.2 million young people through our doors. Since then we've perfected a formula that works:
Our instructors are experienced, committed and highly professional with facilitation, technical skills and qualifications.
