2017 marks the 50th anniversary of North Carolina Outward Bound School. Since our first course out of Table Rock in July of 1967, we have been working hard to change lives through challenge and discovery. And now, it’s time to celebrate! All of you played a crucial role in the enduring history of the school and we encourage you to participate in the story telling and celebrations this coming year.

50th Anniversary Weekend
In October of this year, NCOBS celebrated it's 50th anniversary with five decades worth of alumni, staff, board and supporters in Asheville, NC. Great fun was had by all and we are so grateful to everyone who has made the last 50 years possible. Here are some of the highlights from the weekend.
As we celebrate the anniversary of this extraordinary institution, we are also preparing for the next 50 years through a strategic campaign. You can find out more about the Enduring Impact Campaign and the three categories of support by clicking below.
Tho' much is taken, much abides;
And tho' we are not now that strength which in old days moved earth and heaven;
That which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.
-Alfred Tennyson, Ulysses
