Outward Bound New Zealand is a registered charity, specialising in helping people realise 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 help guide their team on a sailing journey.

Our focus lies in building transferable skills 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.
