Activate is an opportunity to show yourself what you are truly capable of achieving. Break your preconceptions of your physical limitations and test your boundaries.
During your 8 day course you’ll build the confidence to challenge yourself, a philosophy you can then transfer into everyday life. Return home with the courage and determination to achieve whatever goals you set for yourself.
You’ll complete the course with a group of up to 11 peers who also have physical disabilities. You’ll be accompanied by 3 support workers throughout as well as 3 Outward Bound instructors to guide your adventure.
