Outward Bound 2017

Skills for Life

A Free, 3 week, Life Changing Adventure

This year, courtesy of the Sir John Priestman Charity Trust and the Outward Bound Trust, seven more of our Explorer Scouts now have the opportunity to attend an Outward Bound "Skills for Life" course in July/August, held at Outward Bound's Ullswater Centre. Each course is worth more than £1,700 and is recognised as one of the world's best outdoor development courses, with:

Our seven Explorer Scouts will now attend the Skills for Life course, from 31st July to 18th August 2017 (yes, this really is three weeks!)

We hope to be able to facilitate a similar selection next year (finding permitted) and will be providing further details of the 2018 selection in the spring.
