Northwest Outward Bound School is the premier provider of outdoor education and experiential programs for youth and adults in the Pacific Northwest.
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.
We change lives through challenge and discovery.
Each year we serve participants from Oregon, Washington, and Idaho as well as many who come from around the nation to engage in our programs set in the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest. 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
