Our gap year and semester offerings allow students to learn and master new skills as they venture on challenging expeditions outside of the traditional classroom.
Our gap year and semester courses are ideal for college students and recent high school graduates looking to test their tenacity and cultivate their personal leadership style in the unique tropical wilderness of Costa Rica, Panama, and Nicaragua. Academic credit available for those who apply.
We have specifically designed our gap year and semester courses to be different from other outdoor programs, traditional study abroad alternatives, or any travel experience. Join us and see how much you can learn about yourself and the world around you with the tropical rainforests, rivers, and reefs as your classroom.
For over 70 years, Outward Bound worldwide has provided high impact, life skills, and leadership development adventures.
