Our Young Explorer program is more than just a school holiday program for teenagers. By providing a fun and challenging environment, we encourage young adolescents to explore their potential through adventure, all the while supported by our expert instructors. Outward Bound instructors facilitate each activity to ensure a positive and educational experience is had by all.

With activities such as a High Ropes Course, Raft Building, Orienteering, Hiking and many more, teenagers on Young Explorer are stimulated in a positive and constructive environment. By providing “a place apart” Outward Bound courses help young people re-connect with what is real and important in their lives and to get away from the distractions of mobile phones and social media.

With a flexible drop-off on Sunday afternoon and pick-up the next Saturday morning, the Young Explorer offers five full days of fun, challenge and personal development.  Enrol your child today and give them a gift that will last them for years to come.

Key Outcomes:

  • Self-awareness: At this transitional stage in life, young adolescents are beginning to think about themselves in new ways and to shape a new identity for themselves. We aim to equip them with tools to help them form a constructive and meaningful identity.
  • Self-confidence: Our Young Explorer program is designed to provide challenging experiences whereby young people can discover their true potential. By providing a challenging yet supportive environment we are able to focus on the positive aspects of adversity and teach young people that they are stronger than they give themselves credit for.
  • Spirit of initiative & adventure: Early adolescence is a stage when young people are re-defining their boundaries and seeking new experiences. We not only provide a positive outlet for this, we also show young people the value of seeking meaningful and challenging experiences rather than mere “thrill seeking”.
  • Fun! Above all, this is a fun experience that will keep teenagers engaged from start to finish. By creating a fun and positive atmosphere, our instructors keep young people engaged in the program and the learning opportunities that it entails. This is a holiday program with a difference.
