TRAVEL INFORMATION

The information below explains how to make and submit your travel arrangements for Outward Bound.

ONLY MAKE TRAVEL ARRANGEMENTS AFTER:

  1. You have been cleared to participate AND
  2. You are notified that your course has been confirmed as a “GO.” In order for a course to be confirmed as “GO,” we must achieve a minimum number of firm enrollments. Firm= applicants who are fully paid and cleared to participate.

We typically need 6 firm enrollments in order to confirm the course as “GO.” If you purchase airline tickets before notified to do so, make sure you either purchase refundable/transferable tickets OR purchase trip insurance covering the cost of airfare in the event your course is canceled or if you are not cleared to participate. North Carolina Outward Bound is not responsible for refunding the cost of airline tickets, clothing and gear, etc.
