The Outward Bound Trust is an educational charity that uses the outdoors to help develop young people (aged 11-19) from all walks of life. Through the generosity of our donors, we are able to run adventurous and challenging outdoor summer adventures that equip young people with valuable skills for education, work and life.

An Outward Bound summer adventure is your opportunity to take control of your summer and achieve something truly remarkable. To wave goodbye to your smartphone and television, and forge new international friendships that will last a lifetime.

We can’t guarantee that it will be easy, but it will definitely be worth it. With the help of our highly trained instructors you will be challenged and supported to step out of your comfort zone, experience new things and discover what you’re capable of.

From the moment you arrive at our centre you’ll be immersed in spectacular scenery. Rowing across lakes and camping in the wild to lighting fires and building shelters, outdoor adventure is the bedrock of everything that you’ll do.

Whichever path you choose during summer, Outward Bound will leave you feeling more confident, more determined and better prepared for whatever life will throw at you in the future.
