Greetings from

The founders

Hello, we are Bryan and Hannah, and we’ve been in the outdoor industry for 14 years. As the founder and manager, it is our job and pleasure to ensure a harmonious and safe environment with a strong work ethic for both our clients and our staff. At The Adventure Centre safety is the foundation that we stand on. All of our activities are up to UK standards and it is something that we pride ourselves on here in the UAE.

We found our element outside of the classroom through sports and have always pursued a career of creating that spark for children to get a taste of the outdoors. We think it is important that children realize that there is more to life than being book smart and with the right outlet children can harness their energy into something they love.
