Outward Bound is an organization that values learning by doing. Its reach and range of classes and expeditions is extensive—in the US alone (it's an international network), about 35,000 students are enrolled in programs each year, whether classroom- or wilderness-based. The expeditions are for middle school, high school, and college students; adults; and families. The classic Outward Bound wilderness expedition lasts for fifteen days and brings students out into the wild where they partake in any number of exciting (yet challenging) activities from canyoneering to rock climbing, dog sledding, and river rafting. The trip locations are varied: Alaska, Appalachian Mountains, Outer Banks, Colorado Rockies, and so on. It's another summer experience that sticks.
