Adventure Plus (A+) has worked with over 60,000 young people and adults through outdoor adventures since 1990, offering holidays, breaks and activities including to some of the most vulnerable in our society, help them "realise their potential through adventure and education in a positive Christian environment."

An interdenominational Christian Charity (Reg no 1081059) A+ is supported by over 200 volunteers and many individuals, charitable trusts and churches.

As a mobile adventure provider based in Oxfordshire, with good transport links to London, Birmingham, the south coast and Bristol, A+ can bring the adventure to you. We can also support you on adventures at one of our Associate Centres, or take you to remote parts of the country.

To find out more about the story behind the creation of A+, pick up a copy of Life to the MAX by Jon Cox.

Our greatest asset, we are told, is our team of activity instructors, both staff and volunteers, who are passionate about encouraging the 7,500 young people we work with each year, through adventure and education in a positive Christian environment.
