Research has shown that 86% of students have gained the courage to face new challenges after participating in an Outward Bound program.

The quality of personal development a child receives during adolescence shapes the adult they become. And children in our community need help today! After two years of navigating a pandemic, they are struggling to “return to normal.”  Partnering with schools, youth groups, and teachers, Chesapeake Bay Outward Bound School leverages the lessons of personal discovery to help kids see that they can achieve more than they think. Through our programs, they face authentic challenges and develop compassionate, courageous leadership skills like empathy and resilience - life lessons that prepare them for whatever might be next.
