Program Description

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.

Program Outcomes

Outward Bound programs are beyond a simple outdoor experience. You have the chance to explore your core values and build your capacity for:

Self-confidence

Through physical, emotional and social challenges, Navigator helps young adults to learn more about their own potential. By spending time outside their comfort zone, young people will learn that they are capable of more than they realise and will develop the confidence to seek out and overcome challenges in their lives at home.

Initiative & Motivation

Navigator teaches young people to take responsibility for their actions and mindsets. Outward Bound impels young people into challenging experiences that force them to reconsider how much responsibility they are taking for their motivation and direction back at home. Navigator participants commonly express a willingness to try new experiences and to find challenges for themselves after their programs.

Awareness of Self and Others

By taking adolescents away from their normal social environment, we allow them to explore their identity away from everyday peer pressures. This not only allows them to develop an understanding of themselves, it allows them to take on new roles in a social setting and to understand how they can affect those around them.

Leadership Development

Navigator offers adolescents the opportunity to lead in a challenging yet supportive environment. By practicing their leadership in the outdoors, young people will experience immediate feedback and tangible results from their actions. Our expert Instructors offer one-to-one mentoring to suit the natural style of each participant.
