Dates for Alumni Centre Events Announced

We are pleased to announce that following last year’s successful alumni events at Outward Bound Centres, we will be running them again in 2019. The feedback received from attendees in 2018 was overwhelmingly positive and we are hoping to build on this in the coming months.

Would you like to go back to your OB Centre and relive some formative memories? Whereas this time the 'jog & dip' is optional (but highly encouraged!), you will have the opportunity to take in some optional light activities, have a special behind the scenes tour of the Centre, meet with Centre staff and watch current groups in action.

As an Outward Bound alumni, we are offering you the opportunity to spend 24 hours in company of contemporaries at one of our special events, which we cap at a maximum of 24 attendees to create a warm and nostalgic space. You will have the chance to look through archive material, view course reports and reflect on your personal experience whilst learning about the impact Outward Bound has on its participants today and how you might support this. We will eat together (evening meal will be hosted by a special guest) and stay at a nice local hotel.

"The event was a superb experience. So much was learned over the 24 hours. I had high expectations. The quality, flexibility and compelling features of the programme on offer were great features… (Outward Bound’s) vision and the mission will go on forever. 

A major asset was the quality of the staff we interacted with over the 24 hours. Without exception and including all staff, it was a joy to learn from their views and aspirations for Outward Bound. I am the richer for the experience.

In addition, the opportunity to learn from the views of Alumni Members was a rare and treasured feature throughout the programme… it is the journey that matters… I can leave a ‘Legacy of Confidence, Resilience and Determination’; this is an inspirational mission for life’s journey. Thank you Outward Bound".

Mr O, Aberdovey.
