Why choose Outward Bound?

Why Outward Bound?

Life is full of key moments.

Leaving primary school. Starting secondary school. Making friends. Time with family. Sitting exams. Choosing your dream job. And so on.

What's the next big thing for you?

Is it time to learn to believe in yourself? This is what happens on an Outward Bound adventure. Discover different ways to have fun. Make new friends. Go out and explore the wild.

An Outward Bound summer camp will help you step outside your comfort zone and explore your talents. We will show you who you truly are - giving you the confidence to realise your ambitions and achieve your goals.

Away from the distractions of everyday life, this is a unique adventure like no other. Pitch your tent under the stars, conquer mountains with mates, paddle across lakes and spend time in nature.

You can be more than you think.
