For ages 27-45 Duration 8 days

 Take time out from family, work and technology with the eight day Discovery course.

You’ll spend time rediscovering yourself and your values, challenging ingrained limitations of what is possible.

Armed with a new understanding of self, you’ll then focus on your personal goals.

Discovery is a compact Outward Bound experience – ideal if you’re short of time for the full 21 day programme.

It’s a high energy course with little downtime but still perfectly balanced for those looking for physical challenge and those seeking a reflective experience.

After Outward Bound my life took a completely different turn. I now believe I can choose and make my own destiny.
