Aberdovey Centre – Outward Bound

Aberdovey Centre, Gwynedd, LL35 0RA. Wales

Aberdovey is the original Outward Bound centre. No two weeks are the same, but your programme should include a mix of activities – perhaps a night in one of our cabins in the forest or braving the iconic jetty jump from the wharf, maybe a beach camp fire or an expedition on Cadair Idris. These places will be your classroom for your course, giving you space to learn and have fun.

Don’t forget, if you are looking for help with funding the cost of your trip, you can apply for a bursary!
