Embrace an unforgettable experience that resembles the UWC Atlantic adventures of today. The Atlantic Adventure Experience (AAE) will take you on a journey that promises to challenge and excite you along with other like-minded young people this summer.

Meet new people, learn new skills and challenge yourself beyond your comfort zone – that is what AAE is all about.
The outdoor environment is the perfect classroom to explore your strengths and weakness, recognise those of others around you and work together to overcome challenges. Guided by experienced and qualified practitioners, you will
develop new skills – physically and mentally, as you take part in a variety of outdoor activities in areas of natural beauty around South Wales. From sea adventures such as exploring deep caves to rock adventures such as climbing and scrambling, you’ll work together with your team and have lots of fun in the process.

AAE will further explore the lifelong benefits of the outdoors, providing additional opportunities to connect and fine-tune in nature and understand the key benefits of investing in an active and healthy lifestyle.
