We believe that every Outward Bound story is an adventure worth reading - and worth sharing here.

The Outward Bound Trust was founded in 1941 to give young men the confidence to survive if their ships went down in the north Atlantic. The model was so successful that when the war was over young men (and women from 1951) attended courses with remarkable results. Our mission today is to unlock the potential in young people through learning and adventure in the wild. While some things may have changed, what remains the same is the unique personal journey each participant experiences.
