Outward Bound is an international, non-profit, independent, outdoor education organization with approximately 40 schools around the world and 200,000 participants per year. Outward Bound programs aim to foster the personal growth and social skills of participants by using challenging expeditions in the outdoors.
Current Girl Scouts age 13 and older can participate in Costa Rica Outward Bound courses through the Girl Scouts of the USA destinations program.
Outward Bound inspires personal development and growth through wilderness-based adventure activities. Scouts learn about teamwork and leadership, boost their self-confidence, participate in meaningful service projects, learn new skills and make friends from all over. Girls are also exposed to Central American language and culture throughout their course experience.
