CHESAPEAKE BAY OUTWARD BOUND SCHOOL 

CBOBS is part of Outward Bound USA, and we’ve recently launched a new campus, and program, in Washington, DC. We work with education and community partners, like you, to bring our social and emotional learning (SEL) curriculum, as well as accompanying outdoor expeditions, to the students and teachers in your school.

For 80 years, Outward Bound has done what it takes to help young people achieve their full potential, and CBOBS has been proud to be a part of that history since 1986. On average, we work with 6,000 students per year and look forward to stretching even more out of our comfort zones as we grow!

We show you the money. Lorem ipmsum dolor sit amet.
