Founded in 1986, Chesapeake Bay Outward Bound School’s (CBOBS) mission is to change lives through challenge and discovery. Outward Bound is an international educational movement dedicated to the idea that people are capable of far more than they know. As the first urban Outward Bound school in the United States, CBOBS is committed to providing transformational experiences to a diverse group of youth and adults through one-day programs, virtual programs, and multi-day expeditions.
To meet this goal, CBOBS raises over 2 million dollars annually to increase the accessibility and reduce the cost of programming for schools and students in our community. CBOBS has an established location in Baltimore, MD and is developing a location in Washington, DC. CBOBS operates programs in Baltimore, MD; Washington, DC; the Appalachian Trail in MD and PA; the Potomac River; the Dolly Sods Wilderness Area in WV; and the MD’s Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake Bay.
