The Annington Challenge Application Process
Annington Challenge Application Process

2022 APPLICATIONS ARE NOW OPEN

Here's some guidance on how to complete the application form. Please read through all the below before you start.

1. Find out what it's all about

Here is all the info you need to know.

2. Complete the application together

We suggest both the parent and child inputs into the application. The more we know about why you want to do the challenge, the better!

Your child needs to be the correct age at the start of the course date you choose and young people should be prepared to attend courses on their own, or with perhaps one other friend, if places allow.

Don't forget, the deadline for applications is 28 February 2022.

3. pick your centre

You can take part in your adventure at Aberdovey or Ogwen Cottage in Snowdonia, Loch Eil in the Highlands and Ullswater or Howtown in the Lake District.

For successful applicants, Outward Bound offers transport to the centres from several locations and the cost of this is included in the funding.

However, you will be responsible for your own transport arrangements and costs to and from these hubs, or to the centres if you choose to travel direct.
