Our programs are experiential, exciting, and engage the whole person in order to cultivate the qualities and skills that help individuals achieve their greatest potential. Outward Bound Group Programs are custom designed under three formats:
High school and college programs help schools, colleges, camps, clubs, and youth organizations develop self-direction, leadership and community. They have also been shown to improve student retention, team performance, and achievement levels. Whether climbing a mountain, paddling across the wilderness, or sailing a boat, participants engage in activities with a real purpose and overcome challenges through problem-solving, leadership, effort and persistence. Outward Bound helps participants tie values and achievements realized in the wilderness to personal excellence, leadership, care for community, environmental stewardship and direction-setting in their lives at school, work and home.
Health and social services programs help individuals impacted by illness, injury, disability, trauma, violence, intolerance or economic/social instability to reacquire the confidence, trust, and esteem needed to energize their lives and become fully contributing members of their communities. These programs are customized to address the needs of private-for-profit, not-for-profit, public organizations, and individuals with special needs or interests. Wilderness environments, adventure and managed risk help build on trust, cooperation, communication and understanding.
If you want to experience a wilderness adventure with a group of friends, family, or colleagues, Outward Bound can develop a unique program to serve your needs. We tailor activities to the abilities of participants and keep the focus on shared adventure. For corporate training programs, learn about Outward Bound Professional.
