As a recognised sponsor of the Freien Jugendhilfe throughout Germany, our extensive work with young people and professionals empowers them to explore and achieve their potential. Our curriculum encompasses specific and process-oriented seminar concepts, in addition to outdoor wilderness-related sports activities, assigned tasks, meaningful challenges, and the implementation of a targeted transfer moderation and reflection. We predict the experiences at OUTWARD BOUND will extend beyond the course itself, to positively impact everyday life. Our competent and experienced team looks forward to assisting you!

We have two varieties of students: those who were not with you are a little bit afraid of the challenges - and everyone who has been here wants to come again.

Our way of working

Challenge: We provoke a step out of the comfort zone. The participants have the opportunity to face their mental and physical limits and are supported in growing beyond themselves.

Our way of working

Group self-control: "You are the crew and not the passengers!" Our participants are active designers of the results. Our Values ​​Endurance, diligence & responsibility, human compassion and initiative are clearly evident.

Our way of working

Immediacy & authenticity: Deliberately chosen, prepared and accompanied, the actions in nature are associated with real responsibility and real consequences.

Our way of working

Transfer to everyday life: Through joint reflections of the experience and the transfer of transferable models, we facilitate a transfer beyond our seminars into the everyday life of the participants.

Unsere Arbeitsweise

Transfer in den Alltag: Durch gemeinsame Reflexionen des Erlebten und die Vermittlung von übertragbaren Modellen, ermöglichen wir einen Transfer über unsere Seminare hinaus in den Alltag der Teilnehmer*innen.
