Outward Bound Semester in Patagonia

Video and Photos

In the wilderness, your best self becomes second nature.

Unlike survival, compassion isn’t always our first instinct. But what if it was? In the wilderness, and in life, compassion is the source of our resiliency. It reveals our best selves in the best and worst situations. Semester, Outdoor Educator or Pathfinder expeditions reveal who you are and who you want to be. Start your journey now.

Best Decision I've Ever Made

Signing up for this program was one of the single greatest decisions I've ever made. I was pushed beyond unbelievable limits and my confidence has since sky rocketed. This experience prepared me for college by giving me confidence and teaching me perseverance. The lessons I learned from this experience honestly cannot be written in a single review. I have so many stories which will stay with me for the rest of my life, and I made friendships which will too last a lifetime. This experience also helped me understand myself better and it has given me insight into what I want my future to look like. I highly recommend this program.

Yes, I recommend this program
