What people are saying
Brilliant sub aqua sessions, great instructors and a fantastic experience. Will be looking into more session as would like to carry on.
I'm off to Peru on Saturday for a month as an expedition leader. From unemployed to leading the other side of the world, thanks to The Outdoor Partnership!
It is fair to say that as a family we had led a very sedentary lifestyle and many outdoor activities seemed very far placed from our day to day lives. Thanks to the Outdoor Partnership we were now hooked. My wife and I have gone from having never paddled a kayak, to becoming qualified instructors. I hope now to be able to use these skills to teach others and help the local communities.
I had been unemployed, on and off, a pattern that repeated itself over many years… I felt rejected, my confidence was at an all-time low, I had little or no self-esteem when I came across the Outdoor Partnership. They believed I could do it, they believed I was competent! They believed in me when I didn't believe in myself and it was their support that got me through quite a difficult period of my life! I have regained my confidence and self-belief and am now a qualified Mountain Leader and working toward becoming a climbing instructor
