Outward Bound is the leading experiential education organization in the United States, with a national network of regional schools across the country. Our wide-ranging course offerings occur in the wilderness, on the sea and in the classroom, in cities and towns both close and far away.
Outward Bound USA and the national network of Outward Bound schools, operate in collaborative partnership to assure consistent program standards across all schools and to ensure that Outward Bound safety practices, instructor qualifications and course curricula are, without exception, exceptional.
As part of a national system, Outward Bound schools build upon rich local legacies, intimate knowledge of their respective course areas and close ties with the communities they serve. Each school forges active relationships with school systems and other local organizations to weave the thread of character, leadership and ethic of service into the fabric of the local community.
