We expect there to be varying degrees of motivation on the course and we will work hard to support your teen through these challenges. However, if your young person feels sent on this course, they are unlikely to experience positive outcomes. We recommend you talk with your young person and that they are aware and informed about what an Outward Bound course involves and most importantly they are willing to give it a go. When they get here, if a student is determined to leave we cannot and will not make them stay. A student who is not willing to fully participate can compromise the safety and quality of the course and we will call you to arrange for your teen to travel home.
