Northwest Outward Bound School provides uniquely intensive outdoor learning experiences for students of all ages and circumstances.
Outward Bound's core values of Compassion, Integrity, Excellence, and Inclusion & Diversity are built into every aspect of our programs that challenge people to reach their full potential.
Each year we serve nearly 2,000 participants from Oregon and Washington, as well as many who come from around the world to engage in programs set in the Pacific Northwest's natural beauty. All of our programs emphasize learning through experience, leadership, and service to enable students to discover who they are and what they can achieve.
When we discover our own strength of character, an aptitude for leadership, and a desire to serve, we not only have a positive impact on our own lives but on the lives of those around us.
"When you get in a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn." ~ Harriet Beecher Stowe
