Today in the United States, Outward Bound expeditions and programs bring our mission to life throughout the year, every day for roughly 35,000 students annually.
With 11 chartered Outward Bound schools across the country and over 1,000 courses offered, regardless of your age or circumstances, there is an Outward Bound course at an Outward Bound school that is right for every student.
Outward Bound expeditions and programs are inside city and suburban classrooms and outside in breathtaking wilderness settings. All programs adhere to Outward Bound’s unique and powerful educational framework.
We offer Classic Outward Bound wilderness expeditionary courses for middle-school, high school, college age and adults. We have also developed a range of specialized courses and programs such as our award winning program for Veterans, a program for teens grieving with the loss of a family member, programs for families with teens or young adults struggling with issues at school or at home. Outward Bound also has programs for ‘intact groups’ and team-building/performance improvement programs for professionals.
