Event description: Climbing Out is a charity that works with young people facing life changing injury or illness. We run 5 day residential outdoor activity programmes that aim to help the young people taking part regain their confidence and self esteem, and to provide them with the opportunity to realise what they can still achieve despite the challenges they faceā€¦..of course having great fun in the process!
The week consists of a wide range of outdoor activities, from climbing to kayaking, gorge scrambling to hill walking, all of which are adapted to meet the needs and capabilities of the young people involved.

Evening activities also take place throughout the week, including a mine challenge, quiz and BBQ, all helping to make the week an unforgettable experience for everyone taking part. Climbing Out has been running for 3 years and is having a huge impact on the lives of young people.

We currently have places available for this week and we are keen to source young people who would really benefit from this fantastic opportunity. All cost are covered by Climbing Out, and we would love to hear from any clubs, organisations or individuals that would be keen to come along and join us for a week of fun and activity.

Please contact Kelda Wood for more details.

    This is an extract from an email that Kelda Wood received from the parent of a child attending one of Climbing Out activities. We have had permission to share with you:

    “My son has just returned home on Friday………The difference in Joe from before he went away, and coming back home is incredible. It is like I have got my ‘old’ Joe back. he genuinely has been given a huge confidence boost and has made new friends, he has been in contact with most of them since he returned home. Prior to going on the Climbing Out trip, Joe has been really isolated from his old friends, so much so, I was struggling to get him out of his bedroom, he definitely has been closed off from his ‘friends’ and was struggling a great deal. This week has been a fantastic opportunity for him to make new friends ( which he has), and experience opportunities and adventures that he wouldn’t have tried. I did initially have to push Joe a little to put his name down for this trip, purely because he had lost so much confidence. Now he tells me he didn’t want to come back home, because he doesn’t really see any ‘friends’ at home….he had a fantastic time and I really can’t thank you enough for allowing Joe to be part of this trip. Thank you so so much.” A*****
