Outward Bound Trust The Summit 14-day Adventure

Why this award?

Outward Bound Adventures all have one thing in common. At the end, you'll know what you're worth. Your confidence will grow and you'll learn how to believe in yourself. A path of discovery. Time to be curious. Make new friends. Go outside and into the wild. Step outside your comfort zone and explore your talents. Take on physical and metaphorical mountains. Explore great lakes and lochs whilst exploring who you are. This is where you come to challenge yourself and discover what you are truly capable of.

  • A unique and challenging adventure
  • A journey of self-discovery, as well as exploring the wild
  • Make new friends that last a lifetime
  • Practice and develop skills for your future
  • Explore the remotest parts of the UK
  • Be self-reliant, and become more confident and resilient
  • Stand out from the crowd by achieving something different
  • Time away from the distractions of life

Who is it for?

For 13-17 year olds who actively enjoy outdoors experiences and camping, and want to challenge themselves on a longer adventure away with multi-day expeditions. Progarmmes variants are designed for those aged 13 to 15 and aged 16 to 17.

To take on the challenge of a Summit Adventure, you’ll already have experience of exploring the outdoors and camping in the wild. You may have been to Outward Bound before or undertaken challenges like DofE. You’ll also have some independence in nature and are now seeking your next challenge and crave the opportunity to discover more about yourself.

Over 14 days you will face high levels of personal challenge and have the unique opportunity to lead your own expedition into the wilderness, exploring what the areas surrounding Loch Eil have to offer. This is where you will tackle both metaphorical and physical mountains. There is no better place to enhance your personal skills like problem-solving and teamwork and deepen your social and emotional awareness. In the end, you will know what you are worth - you will leave Outward Bound with friends for life and a new level of confidence that will change your life.

What time commitment is required?

This is a 14-day adventure starting at 2pm on Day 1 and finishing at 1pm on Day 14.

Is the award externally accredited?

The Summit 14-day adventure is certified by The Outward Bound Trust. On successful completion of the 14-days participants receive an Outward Bound certificate.
