Outward Bound - The Outward Bound program is designed to draw out the qualities of resilience, determination, self-discovery, leadership and cooperation. The main objective is for students to get to know their self-imposed personal limits and extend them.

Outward Bound aims to let the students learn through experience rather than structured lessons. Most of the experiences during the programs are real and immediate. The linking of actions and consequences is a critical element in this learning process.  Courses are designed to draw out and use personal and group abilities to overcome the challenges encountered in living together while expeditioning through the outdoors.
