Welcome to NOCG
Naval Outdoor Centre Germany

The Naval Outdoor Centre Germany is the Royal Navy's Adventurous and Challenging activities Centre situated in the beautiful Allgäu area of Bavaria Germany. Its aim is to provide members of the Naval Service the opportunity to participate in Adventurous activities and in doing so expose individuals to risk, occasionally operating outside of their comfort zones. We achieve this by offering the opportunity to participate in winter and summer based activities over a 5 day training package.

The first surprise for many will be the fact that personal contributions will be 0, that's right nothing!! We are supported by both the RN/RM Sports Lottery and the RN/RM Charity, so join today!

All students are reminded that they MUST be in possesion of an in date EHIC card.
