To be “Outward Bound” literally means to leave the shelter of the harbor for the open sea; figuratively it means leaving comfort zones, putting fears aside and discovering new possibilities. Whatever your reason for choosing Outward Bound, every bend in the trail, eddy in the river and rock ledge of a mountain peak, are opportunities for personal growth. No experience is necessary, just the willingness to dig deep, and accept the challenge.
We offer courses for a broad range of students from high achieving youth, adults, families, groups, educators, business professionals to veterans, that are both physically challenging and powerfully inspiring. From four to 85 days long, our wilderness programs take place in some of the premier outdoor education areas of the country, with activities like sailing, mountaineering, backpacking, canoeing, rock climbing, sea kayaking and more.
