Outward Bound Family expeditions provide families (whether that is just two family members or the entire extended group) with the opportunity to experience an Outward Bound expedition together as a unit. Family participants learn by doing. As the group works together to accomplish common, challenging goals, they learn about the natural and human history of the land, they acquire valuable outdoor and safety skills, and also learn much about themselves. Throughout the expedition, Instructors facilitate discussions about family dynamics, family values, traditions and priorities, and strategies to bring Outward Bound values and design principles into the home. Classic Family expeditions are also about fun. This is a unique opportunity – and a designated time and space – for families to enjoy each other and the wilderness around them.
