BIG News for 2019!

Submitted by Hello Liam on Tue, 01/01/2019 - 12:52

Hi All – and a very Happy New Year to all OutdoorLads, and prospective new OutdoorLads, everywhere!

As it’s New Years Day, we have some very exciting news to share with you about what’s coming up in 2019! In fact, three VERY exciting pieces of news for you:

1: BIG New Year in the Peaks!

Firstly, in 2019 we’re launching a new BIG event: BIG New Year in the Peaks! We’ll be spending four nights next New Year at the magnificent Mount Cook Adventure Centre in the heart of the Peak District. It is a new purpose-built venue with a whole array of activities possible right from the door, and even a zip-wire from the roof into the quarry below! There’s a choice of ensuite four-bed dorms, two-person pods, or even camping, and the promise of an epic New Years Eve three course meal with an OutdoorLads party to see in 2020. We’re properly excited to be bringing this to you in just under a year’s time! Now available for bookings here, with a limited number of early bird places now on sale!

2: Sailing on the Prolific ll

In June, we’ll be back on the Prolific, after our tremendous voyage on her last year! The feedback from that event was some of the best we’ve ever seen. This is very much an experience in working on a proper sailing boat as opposed to a luxury voyage, but this is the kind of experience that comes along just once in a lifetime, and if you go, you’ll have the absolute time of your life! Starting in Poole, the prolific will sail for four nights, with a trip to France a possibility. No previous sailing experience required, as you’ll be in safe hands with the experienced crew on board from the Ocean Youth Trust – who have made it possible to offer this as a fantastic rate. We additionally have spaces reserved for applications for members who perhaps couldn’t do this otherwise, through the OutdoorLads Foundation. This is now open for booking too – for more information, see here.

3: BIG Summer Camp is back in Worthing!

Yes, our relaunched BIG Summer Camp at Worthing Rugby Club was an absolute blast last year – and so we’re returning in 2019! Now open for bookings, BIG Summer Camp gives you great daytime activities including walks, cycling and a host of watersports activities, and by night, the clubhouse will come alive with our very own DJ keeping the dancefloor grooving! Offering great value, this is an essential event in your OutdoorLads calendar for 2019. Now available for booking here!


Alongside the above, we have a great programme of events and activities for you in 2019, from great hostel events, fantastic locations for camping, both Summer and Winter trips to the Alps, an amazing programme of day walks and cycling trips, indoor and outdoor climbing, watersports... just so much for you to get involved with! Make 2019 the year you get involved with OutdoorLads, or if you already are, make it the year you try something new or different. Whatever you do, make sure you #getoutmore in 2019!
