"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

Ready for the same old office party? Think again!

Conclude the day with a delicious three-course meal in our glass-fronted Dining Hall, complete with licensed bar and speaker system.

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 2017, click the donate below!
