Climbing Out has shown me that anything can be achieved…thank you for pressing the play button and taking my life off hold

Climbing Out runs 5 day outdoor activity programmes aimed at rebuilding confidence and self esteem in young people who have been through a life changing injury, illness or trauma. The programmes run Monday to Friday and offer a wide range of activities including climbing, gorge scrambling, kayaking, hill walking, abseiling and raft building. All the activities are bespoke to the needs and capabilities of individual participants, so it doesn’t matter how fit you are, or what physical limitations you may have, all the activities are adapted to suit the group, so everyone can take part and have a go.

My trip with Climbing Out was absolutely brilliant. We were all pushed out of our comfort zones and achieved things we never thought we could. I gained confidence in myself that I didn’t know I had, confidence to keep going and not give up. Seeing everyone come out of their shells and grow bolder as the week went on gave me such a good feeling, and I went home happy, exhausted, and desperately proud of everyone I was with.

Clean Dirty Fun

Our instructors are specifically trained in personal development coaching as well as outdoor activities, and run fun and light hearted personal development sessions each morning and evening so the young people can review and reflect on their learnings from the day’s activities. These sessions provide the young people with the skills to then transfer those learnings to life after completion of the programmes.

Social events are held each evening, including an inspirational talk, a Quiz night and a BBQ. The social element of the programmes have proved to be incredibly important, often providing the young people the first chance to socialise and make new friends since treatment. Life long friendships have developed as a result of taking part in a Climbing Out programme.

The Climbing Out programmes have proved time and time again to act as a spring board to enable young people to start living life to the full post injury, illness or trauma
