Our Mission:


To provide access to the outdoors and outdoor activities for all, especially young people and those who would not otherwise have the opportunity.


Who We Are

Mount Cook Adventure Centre is a not-for-profit organisation, based on the outskirts of the Peak District. We use the spectacular natural environment to provide a range of exciting outdoor activities and residential trips which develop key life skills and create memories which last a lifetime. If you are a school or university, youth group, charity, corporate group, a group of family or friends, or sports club - we would love to hear from you!

Our purpose-built Centre can accommodate up to 140 guests, plus a further 40 guests in our brand new Glamping Pods


Exciting events, family-orientated weekends and holiday camps!

Book a family experience like no other, with our NEW Adventure Breaks! The one or two day package offers flexible accommodation, full catering and plenty of activities to keep the kids (and big kids!) entertained. 

For children aged 8 - 12 years, why not book one of our Adventure Holiday Camps? We're offering five days jam-packed with exciting outdoor activities, with meals included. Your child can stay with us for a full week with our residential option, or simply join us for individual days. What's not to like?!

Since opening in July 2016, we have already worked with numerous charities and youth groups to help those who would not otherwise have the opportunity to enjoy new experiences within the outdoors. If you would like to help us support more groups in 2018, click the donate below!
