The Colorado Outward Bound School aims to inspire character development, develop leadership skills, and cultivate a service ethic in students of all ages by immersing them in unfamiliar environments. Whether the environment is wilderness or urban, students are gently pushed out of their comfort zone in order to help them understand themselves, each other, and the world around them. While the course experience opens these new horizons, the true power of Outward Bound manifests when students return home to their families, friends, communities, and schools and bring with them the life lessons they learned on course.
COBS offers courses that range in length from 1 to 81 days for youth, adults, Veterans, business professionals, and community groups. Our courses take place in the furthest reaches of Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, California and Ecuador. Course activities include mountaineering, whitewater rafting, rock climbing, sea kayaking, mountain and canyon backpacking, canyoneering and backcountry snowboarding and skiing.
