Youth Groups

Learn beyond your comfort zone

Your young people. Our instructors. One wild location. Let's do this.

Limitations on young people, whether real or perceived, come in all shapes and sizes. But we use the power of learning and adventures in the wild to defeat them all.

We partner with youth groups to teach young people the most important lesson they could ever learn: to believe in themselves.

It’s the superpower that transforms their behaviour throughout school, work and beyond.

Learning about yourself happens best out in the wild. We take young people away from the everyday life into our world, to give them life-changing experiences they won’t get from home or inside the classroom.

Our tailored outdoor learning courses deliver an alternative education, giving young people the confidence to tackle the real world head on.

CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) UPDATE

If you have booked to come to Outward Bound whilst schools are closed, we are currently getting in touch with the schools and groups due to travel imminently. Please bear with us, as we are contacting our customers in date order of travel. Thank you for your cooperation and patience whilst we do this.

We're taking bookings for coming to Outward Bound in the future, so if you would like to have a chat about this, please get in touch.

We know these are uncertain times so be rest assured that all of our courses are fully insured. So, in the event you have to cancel, you wouldn't be out of pocket and we can rebook your course straight away.

Challenging activities

We use the natural environment to stretch your young people over three or five days. Challenges include gorge walking, rock climbing, cutter sailing and canoeing. All are fun, adventurous and help to embed learning.

Our wild locations

Each of our five residentials centres are set in truly jaw-dropping spots. Because of their lakeside views or closeness to the UK’s tallest peaks, they will make you feel like you’re a million miles away from civilisation.

Financial support

As a charity we’re not focussed on profit or shareholders. We just care about young people. And thanks to our donors and supporters, we can give funding to the youth groups who really need it to put towards the cost of their course.

Get in touch

A smaller core team is still here and available to answer enquiries. We may take a little longer than usual to get back to you during this time. Thank you for your patience.
