Outward Bound reminded me to use each moment productively, do things that matter and are positive, and keep asking the question about what matters to you and the community. In other words don’t stop growing – keep pushing yourself in a healthy way.
Each participant must undergo a medical screening prior to confirmation of enrolment. Read the Outward Bound Participation Guidelines here.
You must complete an Outward Bound medical form with a doctor. The medical form is valid for 90 days* from the date it is completed by a doctor and must be valid until the course start date. All medical forms will be reviewed by our nurse.
If you are concerned about a medical condition, please call us on 0800 688 927 to talk it through.
*Medical forms for participants booked on either a Mind Body Soul, Classic, or Leaps & Bounds course are valid for 180 days.
The fitter you are, the more you will enjoy it! You must be able to comfortably run 3km in under 25 minutes, plus complete a full day's physical activity.

No, you don't need to have any experience of outdoor activities or spending time outdoors.
You simply need to be willing to give the activities a go. The more you get involved, the more you will get out of your course.
