What is Wave Adventure?
We are a Bolton Charity who are passionate about the outdoors and introducing people to healthy new activities, Wave Adventure organise events for individuals or groups of all ages and abilities.
Wave Adventure will take you kayaking across Lancashire’s dramatic landscape, or up it through climbing challenges, where you can enjoy the stunning views the North West has to offer. We have group indoor wall climbing in Bolton, Stockport and other local climbing venues. Also, we have outdoor bouldering sessions and go on regular hikes.
We do lots of other stuff too, so read on to find out more…
Health and Wellbeing
At Wave Adventure the goal is to promote the health and well being of our members by offering fun activities in a supportive environment. Regular participation in sport and leisure activities is proven to not only improve physical health, but have a positive impact on mental and emotional wellbeing too.
Taking part in team sports and group activities can significantly improve fitness, communication skills and build confidence.
Best of all, we can adapt our sessions to your needs so the activity is as gentle or as challenging as you want. Why do we do this – because WAVE Adventure is for everyone!

How did WAVE begin?
WAVE Adventure was founded and formally constituted in 1999, in partnership with Bolton Youth Service. It was originally aimed at offering young people from deprived backgrounds in Bolton opportunities to participate in outdoor activities, such as canoeing and climbing.
Our aims grew to include work with families and adults over the years. Since 1999 it has introduced thousands of people to exciting, healthy outdoor activities.
Here at Wave Adventure, we have developed excellent partnership links with a range of organisations – and we continually look to establish relationships with relevant groups who can help people to access our services and facilities. If you feel you have services or facilities to offer, please contact us.
Wave is for Everyone!
As a charity we aim to support individuals and groups experiencing disadvantage to take part. We are keen to enable children young people and adults of all backgrounds to be more confident and healthy.
We have found the activities offered by WAVE Adventure can have an enormous impact on self confidence, personal and social skills through helping participants to develop skills and the experience of being part of a team.
Participants on our programme have reported back positively on their adventures with WAVE Adventure.
