Learning through authentic adventure in the natural environment

An Outward Bound program is all about learning and the impact this has on the individual. This is achieved through skillful people working in an inspiring and challenging environment and applying an effective process.

Our learning model

We aim for participants to learn:

  • More about themselves
  • How they interact with others
  • About the immediate and wider community  and the natural environment.

At the heart of this is learning through authentic adventure. A combination of authentic adventure in the natural environment and the application of a facilitated and deliberate learning process in an outdoor setting. We describe this as being “top  right”, as the illustration on the left shows this.

Our process

The Outward Bound
experiential learning

Each program will be set in a context for the participants and will have specific learning outcomes. The course will link the learning outcomes, adventure and environment through the Outward Bound experiential learning model.
