Nothing pushes you further beyond your mental and physical limits than an Outward Bound Wilderness expedition. It’s part survival course, part adventure vacation: group leaders take you and your crew into the wilderness where they teach trekking, sailing, and mountaineering skills. But aside from the physical stuff, you’ll build your character with activities that focus on compassion, teamwork and self-reliance. Whether you canoe the north woods in Maine, sea kayak in Baja, or dogsled in Alaska, you’ll return home a rejuvenated, stronger man.
