THE OUTWARD BOUND DIFFERENCE

PREPARING YOUNG PEOPLE FOR LIFE'S CHALLENGES AND ADVENTURES

Outward Bound programs inspire young people and adults to stretch beyond their perceived abilities. In balancing responsibility, risk and reward, and in learning to act boldly, deliberately, and with compassion, students experience profound growth and lasting change. 

These skills are infinitely transferable and support students’ successes at work and school, and in their careers, families and communities.

This is our difference.
