Leaders in Outdoor Experiential Learning

About Us

Team Building at BACABOUT BAC

BAC has evolved since 1989 to become a leader in providing personal and social development programmes to over 20,000 young people each year.

Through outdoor adventure activities BAC delivers educational programmes for experiential learning and activity skills development to achieve its vision for “Changing Lives, Building Futures”

BAC offers dynamic and innovative outdoor learning programmes to challenge, stimulate and motivate young people from a broad range of backgrounds to help identify and realise their full potentials.

BAC core projects engage young people considered at most disadvantage, socially and economically and include longer-term programmes to support disability access and participation, work with young people from disadvantaged communities and projects focused upon supporting marginalised groups and young people including young carers, lone parents and their families and young homeless.

BAC's VISION is that every young person will have an equality of opportunity to realise their full potential.

BAC's Mission is to deliver the best personal and social development opportunities for individual young people alongside leadership skills training to support greater and more sustainable outdoor adventure learning within communities.
