Outward Bound has been teaching and working with girls and young women to build and enhance confidence, self-reliance and leadership skills for 50 years. Join us for a girls' or womens' course this summer!
Empowerment & Community
At Outward Bound we believe there is more in us than we know. Through a wide variety of educational programs and the care and skill of our highly trained instructors, we teach girls how to reach goals together and lead with compassion. With nearly 50% female instructors in the field and empowering curriculum, we are uniquely prepared to provide an emotionally safe and supportive learning environment, while also challenging girls to stretch their limits and make friends that last a lifetime.
“It was challenging, but I realize how fortunate I was to have the chance to go and how great it was to be there, in community, overcoming troubles, learning leadership skills and all while having fun. It’s given me a unique worldview, a strong sense of myself and my abilities and motivation to be my best. In order to pursue my dreams, I embrace difficulties and see them as an adventure, not as a hardship that prevents me from moving forward.”
– Udval, Outward Bound California Alumni 2014
