The Campaign seeks to show that life is best approached in a spirit of exploration, adventure and enterprise; to influence and better inform attitudes towards risk; to build wider recognition that chance, unforeseen circumstances and uncertainty are inescapable features of life and that absolute safety is unachievable; and to demonstrate that sensible education and preparation enable an appropriate balance to be achieved between risk & safety and achievement & opportunity.

HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, has passed
Sunday, 18 April 2021

Our Patron since the commencement of our campaign, HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, has passed.

An adventurer to the end, our patron’s innovative, adventurous, sublime and appropriate ceremony at Windsor Castle - St George's Chapel, provided the subtlely and sensitivity needed by the world in saying its goodbyes to this remarkable statesperson and true Citizen of Our Globe, who was loved by so many.

In 2000, at the RGS in London Prince Philip called for the Campaign for Adventure at the UK Outdoor-Council conference ‘Adventure in Society’. In its 20 years CfA has changed UK laws through an All Party Parliamentary Group ‘ARISc’, held four consultations on adventure at St George’s House, Windsor Castle, and in The Chinese Room, Buckingham Palace, has driven forward the debate on Risk and Enterprise in Society in 12 countries, has identified and celebrated 22 Adventure Champions from diverse UK backgrounds and has challenged the media relentlessly by supporting the  understanding of the need for healthy risk-taking in UK life. CfA now finds itself working harder than ever on society’s risk-supporting agendas including Summer Camps Trust, the Adventure Licensing review, the CBI Education Agendas and challenging the degree of risk being shown by society in its need to drive changes within Covid19, conservation action and climate change common sense.

Your Outdoor Adventure Week, 2020 seems a tragedy, but
Sunday, 24 May 2020

Your Outdoor Adventure Week, 2020 seems a tragedy, but many are making the most of it - many, many more than usual.

So we have hit National BBQ Week with a full on thrust towards getting outside in gardens, parks and streets. The confusion over local requests for 'Please do not come to our beaches' is mixed and we hope common sense become as common as it needs to be during this careful and staying safe phase. 

So many more are now walking, biking and just being outside. Perhaps the parameters of adventure are now more in the checking of the skies where proper skies now exist. Note the difference between jet-trail skies and real ones. The cirrus, fine-weather cumulus and pain blue sky is new to most of us and it shall be gone in a very few weeks as our planes particulate our skies again.

Now we have no Summer Camps, school Outings or, at the moment, any overnight adventures, except, of course, sleeping in our gardens and on our (flat-) roofs, whether with a tent or simply and much better, with bedding on a waterproof sheet with the whole universe on view. still has its free book of 50 lock-down activities on line, with a total of 120 available in a printable version. Great for parties, too. 

So, keep doing something different and doing things differently - we have Coronavirus to blame/thank or just add to our supply of inspiring possibilities. Enjoy OAW2020.
