North Carolina Outward Bound School

LAST UPDATED: October 21, 2016
Education & Youth Development
NCOBS wilderness programs are designed for youth, adults, school groups, struggling teens and young adults, corporate teams, military veterans and educators. They are offered in North Carolina's mountains and Outer Banks, Florida's Everglades and rivers, South America's Patagonia region, and in Atlanta partner schools. With common elements of challenge and adventure, learning through experience, and a supportive group environment, students of all ages learn to persevere and soon realize they are capable of so much more than they ever thought possible. They learn to communicate effectively, lead a group of their peers and practice compassion as they work with their crew to accomplish goals. All programs embody the timeless, founding Pillars of Outward Bound - Self-Reliance, Fitness, Craftsmanship, and above all, Compassion. In 2014 over 4,200 students participated in our programs; 574 were from Florida and 343 were from Miami-Dade County.
