Since 1961 Outward Bound has been serving youth, teens and adults with wilderness expeditions and other innovative programming in the America's most beautiful wilderness areas, in classrooms, city parks and in boardrooms.
Our diverse programming is a testament to our innovative idea; that engaging in challenge and considering the results teaches us how to work together and how to both rely on ourselves and, perhaps more importantly, each other.
The original Outward Bound program, these classic extended wilderness expeditions take people deep into beautiful wilderness environments and teach participants how to travel. Whether it is on foot, by raft, kayak or canoe or under sail, you will find out that you can do more than you think you can.
Intercept for Struggling Teens & Young Adults
Since 1982, Outward Bound has been offering a version of the classic wilderness expedition designed for struggling teens and young adults. With a focus on exploring the challenges of growing up, and a goal to offer families a new plan for their household, Intercept is perfect for teens/young adults struggling with poor school performance, low motivation or who are engaging in risky behaviors.

We are incredibly proud to offer fully funded 5-7 day wilderness courses to veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. We have brought thousands of vets on course and offered them a place to get out into beautiful settings, in the company of their fellow veterans, and enjoy the challenge and leadership of an Outward Bound expedition.
Outward Bound Professional has been offering corporate teambuilding programs for over 30 years. Programs often combine indoor and outdoor activities and can be held at conference centers, urban parks, rural basecamps or wilderness settings. Itineraries can be as short as a day or continue on a regular schedule over several months. The goal is to create positive, lasting change in the workplace through innovative, customized programs that enhance the effectiveness of individuals, groups and organizations.
We have been serving high school and college groups as well as special groups like cancer survivors or families of 9/11 victims for decades. Group Programs range from a single day ropes course to multi-week wilderness expeditions.
