How Explorers Connect Started My Journey

Wild Night Out

In 2012, I stumbled across a website called Explorers Connect. My head was full of big dreams, and becoming an expedition kayaker was right at the forefront. I now run my own expedition company, bringing together adventure-loving people. Happy birthday, Explorers Connect. You have influenced my journey more that you can imagine!

Explorers Connect’s annual campaign “Wild Night Out” is encouraging free and very-low-cost events around the UK to encourage others to get outside on the national night of adventure 29th June 2019. Working with the Youth Hostel Association we need volunteers to help add a little magic to our adventure camp-outs at various locations around the country.
