We are pleased you have begun the process that will lead you Outward Bound. We promise you an extraordinary learning opportunity.
The wilderness is our classroom. We operate in all types of weather and travel a variety of terrain. There will be times when you can expect to be hot, cold, wet, tired and sore. Your activities will vary depending upon the season, location and your group dynamics. You may hike long distances with a backpack, rock climb, rappel, paddle by canoe or sea kayak, run or reflect in solitude. We work as a group to overcome self-imposed limitations as it is through skill development, trust in others and belief in ourselves that each of us can reach a deeper understanding of our full potential. You will push your limits both physically and mentally and share in the joy of a challenge surmounted. Learning is at its best when it is fun yet serious at the same time. Outward Bound will challenge you to do your best each day!
Risk management is fundamental to an Outward Bound experience. Personal health and well being in the wilderness is the responsibility of each and every member of an Outward Bound crew. The wilderness can be a very unforgiving teacher. To emphasize these points, we ask that you (and a parent/guardian as required) read, sign and return all required forms.
We look forward to receiving your paperwork. Without all relevant data, it is difficult to adequately plan schedules and logistics necessary to provide a quality Outward Bound experience. Please take the time to fill in all requested information.
To complete an Outward Bound course is an achievement. People of all ages remember their Outward Bound experiences for a lifetime and frequently report, "Outward Bound was the best thing I ever did." I am confident your upcoming Outward Bound course will have a positive impact on you as well.
We look forward to seeing you in the wilderness!
