It truly has been a life changing experience for me, many things I've learnt I can take home with me and use for the rest of my life. The experience you gain from attending is truly incredible and will help you for years after leaving the course.

I learnt so much and made heaps of amazing memories with people who were once strangers, but are now very close friends. I believe I have grown as a person and leant that I am capable of anything, because there is more in me. Outward Bound has helped me see that. I can make a difference.
