Ultimate Expedition

The Outward Bound Trust (UK) is an educational charity that uses the outdoors to help develop young people from all walks of life. We run adventurous and challenging outdoor learning programmes that equip young people with valuable skills for education, work and life!

An Outward Bound summer adventure is an opportunity to achieve something truly remarkable. From the moment participants arrive at our centres they’re immersed in spectacular surroundings and introduced to new people from across the UK and around the world.

From rowing across lakes and camping in the wild to lighting fires and building shelters, outdoor adventure is at the heart of everything they will do.

There are different types of adventure that you can take part in depending on your age.

Choose your adventure:

– The Outward Bound Skills for Life Award | 19-days (15-19)

– The Ultimate Expedition | 19-days (15-19)

– Serious Adventure | 7-days (13-15 & 15-19)

Whichever path your child chooses, an Outward Bound summer adventure will leave them feeling more confident, more determined and better prepared for whatever life will throw at them in the future.
