What Our
Are Saying

Some words from past participants.

    “The Outward Bound Training for Outdoor Professionals was such an incredible, memorable, and educational experience run by the most kind, knowledgeable & encouraging instructors, I cannot recommend it enough!! The outdoors is something that everyone should get to experience, no matter their race, age, or income status. With outward bounds efforts, I can see the Outdoor sector transforming & opening up, allowing more individuals to learn, grow, and play in the Outdoors, and I think that’s something really special.”

    Terry Nguyen

    “The training academy is one of the best experiences I’ve ever had! Which sounds so cliche, but it honestly was! I learned so much about guiding and what happens behind the scenes while on trip. I also learned about myself. The instructors really knew when and how to challenge me, and I left feeling more confident in myself and my abilities! I will forever cherish my time as part of the academy. If you haven’t applied yet, do it! You won’t regret it!”

    Rosa Wachs

    “The Outward Bound Training Academy was amazing! I learned so many hands-on outdoor leadership skills that build up my confidence. If you have the opportunity to participate, it’s 1000% worth it! You’re going to meet some amazing people and do some awesome things!”

    Caleb Wesley

    “I had the most amazing experience with the Training Academy! I feel so much more confident in my abilities in the outdoors, and also feel comfortable taking others outside to enjoy the beauty of nature. I cannot say enough about this program, including the amazing facilitator’s who shared their wealth of knowledge, along with their passion for the outdoors. If I could, I would take the training all over again, just to meet the next cohort of trainees who are curious like me!”
