Outward Bound in reopening from August 2020!
We will be fully operational under NZ's Alert Level 1 restrictions.
Please read our COVID Response Plan here.
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.
