More than three quarters of Outward Bound participants are over 18. Our courses are tailored for whichever phase you're at in life.

Our adult courses place heavy emphasis on re-energising, taking time out for yourself and breaking away from your routine - all things that we face a little later in life.

We understand it can be difficult to balance your commitments with a course. Try involving and engaging your employer in your Outward Bound programme. Explain what you'll get out of it and how your effectiveness at work should also improve.

For inspiration on how to manage taking time out of work, watch David's story.
