Gap Year Courses

Outward Bound’s Gap Year course offerings will enable you to get away from your daily life, creating space in nature to engage in self-discovery and experiential learning. Expert instructors will lead you through novel, real-life experiences that require you and your group to collaboratively problem solve through challenge, failure, and success.

These experiences will have a lasting and measurable impact on your life by building your sense of resiliency, developing greater leadership skills and social connectedness, and foster a stronger connection with the natural world. Click here to learn more.
