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.

  • Airline Departure 1:00 PM – 6:00 PM: Book your child’s departure between 1:00 PM and 6:00 PM on the last day of the course. Itineraries booked outside of these times will require rebooking which can be costly and avoidable.

Students will be supervised by an Outward Bound representative wearing an Outward Bound shirt or hat with an Outward Bound logo. Our representative will require a signature from you when you pick up your child.

***Based on limited non-stop flight availability to/from AVL and our arrival criteria above, please expect your itinerary to include a connecting flight.***
