Outward Bound is one of New Zealand's leading organisations for showing people their full potential through outdoor challenge and adventure.

We believe in experiential learning - or learning through doing. That means students take responsibility over the challenge ahead of them. Whether that's leading the way on an expedition or managing their team to complete a kayak journey.

Our focus lies in building transferable skill and attitudes that remain far beyond a participant's time with us. Lessons learnt are applicable to work, study, home - and they last for life.
