Your Support Transforms Lives
COBS empowers students from all backgrounds to discover skills that transfer from the field to real life, skills that are indispensable for becoming active community members: strength of character, the ability to lead, confidence, and a determination to serve the community.

COBS dreams big – we truly believe there is more in us than we know. These dreams become reality through investment and partnership. Together, we get more students on course, raise the bar of our program quality and staff training, and grow the capacity of our facilities and programs to meet the needs of the school and its future.

There are many ways to support the Colorado Outward Bound School.
