Our activities

OUTWARD BOUND has the highest requirements for the training, equipment and the execution of the courses. Our security concept for executing the activities and the material meets the highest international and national standards.

All of our trainers are highly qualified and, in addition to training as experience-pedagogical trainers, have a variety of sports-related additional qualifications to accompany all activities safely. This gives you the opportunity to get to know the participants during the course day quite relaxed from a different perspective, as observers and / or passive participants.

All our participants are without exception equipped with high-quality safety equipment for outdoor activities. When equipping our participants with safety-relevant material and equipment, we therefore work exclusively with renowned brand manufacturers in the outdoor industry.

Through the safe use of the activities listed below, OUTWARD BOUND Germany's goal is to promote the individual's self-esteem, social skills and shared responsibility for community and nature. In this way we create positive impulses for the professional development and the further life.

„The children can develop their own strengths, learning to trust themselves and others.“

Anouk Helmholtz, Gymnasium Plochingen, 07.04.2017

„Five days of OUTWARD BOUND gave our participants (slight) muscle soreness, in addition to a beaming face. In such a short time, they were given so much: they improved their self-awareness, and were well on their way to achieving their personal development goals.“

Rebecca Gallandt, Lebenshilfe Bayern e.V., 24.04.2017
