Come and Have an Adventure!

Welcome to Adventure Based Learning. We are a not for profit Community Interest Company based in Oldham specialising in outdoor learning to affect positive change and inspire our participants.

We also run public events and taster sessions to promote our activities and to raise funds. We cater all ages, fitness levels and budgets. Many of our events and taster days are funded and cost very little, sometimes even free.

We aim to inspire you to get out and about, develop your self confidence and increase your thirst for Adventure. Come and join in the fun and see what you've been missing...
