Gap Year & Semester Programs

Our longest and most challenging courses travel through multiple environments and challenge students continually with new opportunities. Your expedition may take you up remote mountains, out to sea or to a foreign country. Opportunities for environmental stewardship and humanitarian work are the cornerstone for outcomes of leadership, increased awareness and personal growth.

Immersion in foreign cultures extends the OB experience in service, compassion and leadership.


SAIL IN THE FLORIDA KEYS THIS WINTER.   Maybe it's time for a break - a real break.  Maybe a once-in-a-lifetime challenge, or the opportunity to gain a fresh perspective on life.  Maybe its time to become Outward Bound.  We offer scheduled Adult only courses or would be happy to put together a special program for a group of adults of your choosing at a time that works best for you.
