The Navigator Course - Preparing Youth for Life (12 days)

Who it's for: Young people aged 15 - 17 years

What it is: 12 day journey of self-discovery

When it's on: All year round

Where it's held: The great Aussie wilderness

The end of school is exciting but it can also be a confusing and challenging time.

What inspires you? What's your 'true North'? If you're just starting to think about your career or study path, don't make a decision until you learn more about the strengths and abilities you may not even know you have.

Through adventure, laughter and some one-on-one with the wilderness, the Navigator Course will give you personal motivation and confidence and provide you with the skills to map your journey of self-discovery! You'll find you're capable of more than you thought possible.

The Navigator Course is 12-day personal development experience full of adventure, wilderness, new friends and fun, whilst discovering and developing your potential! You will learn things about yourself you could never learn in a classroom. The focus is on you, however, you will share your adventure with other young adults in a close social group.

Get a head start by adding an Outward Bound certificate to your resume. Completing this course is a great achievement. It aims to provide a greater sense of self and the ability to face the future with confidence, resourcefulness and a determination to succeed in whatever you decide to do.

You will be picked up from a central designated meeting place in close proximity to the course location, and dropped off at an agreed departure point at the completion of your course.

Investment: AUD$1,875 All Inclusive

Early bird and Alumni discounts available

The benefits of an Outward Bound Course are amazing.

I believe anyone who goes through such a self-reflecting experience will return with an incredible sense of self-awareness that strengthens your perceptions of the world despite the influence of society.
