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.  

Mount Cook is a brand new not-for-profit Adventure Centre, based on the outskirts of the Peak District. We use the spectacular natural environment surrounding our Centre to provide access to a range of exciting outdoor adventure activities and outdoor learning. We welcome groups big and small, and people of all ages and abilities to our Centre!
