Transformative teambuilding experiences. Cultivating resilient and compassionate leaders.

Iconic landscapes. The best outdoor educators in the industry. And top-notch facilities. When it comes to expeditionary learning and teambuilding, COBS delivers. For over 50 years, we have been partnering with schools and businesses in Colorado to help teams thrive through challenge and discovery.
Whether you choose to embark on a weekend of high ropes at our Leadville basecamp or a 4-day backpacking expedition, your group will return home with new skills for success. Students will learn social and emotional skills for life like teamwork, self-awareness, social responsibility, and physical confidence.
To plan your adventure today, contact Business Development Manager, Jason Davis, at [email protected] or 303-676-8239.


We've combined our 60 years of experience in outdoor education with the latest research on social-emotional development to create our educational framework. Through challenge and discovery, our students develop skills that will last a lifetime. 



Through challenge and adventure, we help our students discover strength of character, leadership abilities, and a desire to serve. Our vision is to create more compassionate leaders for a more compassionate world.  



We bring our expertise in expeditionary learning to business partners, providing a truly unique professional development experience. Our programs help teams develop values at the core of business success – leadership, self-reliance, accountability and the ability to transcend self-imposed limits.

The annual COBS course serves as the capstone of an intensive three-week orientation and team building process focused on integrating new Fellows to the El Pomar team. Spending a week in the backcountry together expedites the team building process, as the concepts of goal setting, creating a shared vision, encouragement, communication, trust, and vulnerability are all introduced and addressed in a safe environment. It is an incredibly rewarding experience that never fails to provide valuable personal insights and growth, while strengthening the rapport among co-workers.
