Welcome to a Year Like No Other. We are so excited to welcome students on our 2021 expeditions. Our courses may look slightly different this year, as we follow our enhanced health and safety standards. Please keep reading to see what these standards look like on course and what you can expect as you embark on your journey with Outward Bound.
Let's Get Started. The moment you decide to go Outward Bound you’re tasked with responsibilities that impact not only yourself, but also your crew. This includes taking the necessary precautions to mitigate risks, including those associated with COVID-19. Below are enhanced health and safety practices we ask of every student prior to arrival and while on course.
Depending on your course start location, you may be required to travel to course by private transportation—you can find out more by contacting your Course Advisor or regional school. No matter how you get to course, we ask you to take these necessary steps in order to mitigate your exposure.
Hear what Jonas and Nora, Fall 2020 Semester Alumni had to say about their experience traveling to course.
Do not travel to course if you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, if you have been or presumed to have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 or you, yourself, have tested positive for COVID-19. In this instance please contact your Course Advisor immediately to work through your options.
After you arrive at basecamp, have a negative COVID-19 test and have been screened for symptoms your expedition will begin. These field practices are designed to keep yourself and others healthy while on course.
