NCOBS partners with many different schools, colleges, and groups to bring the wilderness and classroom together. We focus on the educational objectives and developmental needs of specific groups and can even design a unique program just for your group.
Partnering with North Carolina Outward Bound School guarantees you the expertise of the largest, oldest, most respected provider of outdoor education and experiential learning in the world. No one else offers wilderness education with the same commitment to character, craftsmanship, leadership development and safety.
Our school uses the wilderness as our classroom and wilderness activities as vehicles for learning. Our classrooms include the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina, the winding waterways of the Ten Thousand Islands in Florida, the historic beaches of the Outer Banks in North Carolina, the urban Atlanta, Ga rope course center, and the mystic mountains of Patagonia in South America. Depending on the area, activities include backpacking, rock climbing, rope courses, whitewater canoeing, coastal canoeing, sea kayaking, mountaineering, map and compass use, service projects and leadership training. North Carolina Outward Bound School can also bring the classroom to you with our mobile initiatives. > Learn more about our unique locations.
The SEC led a class assembly for each grade level where students could speak out about any issue or topic that they felt needed to be addressed. Our Outward Bound students facilitated by microphones on stage in front of their peers. The teachers and the administrators sat at the back listening to the things that the students had to say. The students melted in the palm of their hands – making suggestions to improve our school, sharing ideas to fix things important to them, and standing up against rules that they felt unfair. It was a real conversation amongst students, for students, by students.
