Mission Statement

Outward Bound is a nonprofit educational organization whose mission is change lives through challenge and discovery. We conduct safe, adventure-based outdoor courses structured to encourage growth and self-discovery, and to inspire confidence, self-reliance, concern for others and care for the environment.

Description

With 50 years of innovation in experiential and outdoor education in the Pacific Northwest, Northwest Outward Bound School continues to change lives through challenge and discovery. Whether a student discovers a leadership style, physical fortitude, a love of whitewater, options for the future, the majesty of the outdoors, or compassion for their teammates, these discoveries change the participant, the community, and the world. No education is complete without Outward Bound.

Northwest Outward Bound School operates transformative wilderness educational courses in some of the most dramatically stunning parts of the United States. Our course areas traverse world-renowned rock climbing sites, the longest undammed river in the country, volcanic landscapes, world-class kayaking waters, and some of the only glaciers in the continental United States.

While kayaking, backpacking, rafting, canoeing, or climbing in the Cascade Mountains, the Puget Sound, northwest rivers, or Ross Lake, Northwest Outward Bound School students test their strengths, challenge their fears, and discover that they are capable of far more than they ever thought possible.

The mission of Northwest Outward Bound School is to change lives through challenge and discovery.
