Who: One adult with a family youth member in school Years 7-10



Demands on our time and the pressures of modern living can mean that families may miss opportunities to share great experiences together and build strong family relationships.

Outward Bound aims to strengthen important family relationships by providing a family get-away with a difference and a bonding experience you’ll never forget! Our 5-day family program encourages participants to support one another and connect through dialogue, personal reflection, working together and creating fantastic life-long memories. This is a rare opportunity to see your family in a whole new light.

Have fun sharing your adventure with other families who are on their own exciting journey. Adolescence is an important time for young people to build strong and healthy relationships with parents and carers in their life.

The Family program is designed for one adult and youth pair, where the youth is currently in school Years 7-10.


Course Outcomes:

Fun and Adventure

Above all, this is a fun and enjoyable time together and is a great way to experience the Australian bush with the help and support of Outward Bound’s expert instructors.

Unique Shared Experience

The Family Program creates a shared experience that will be recalled and drawn upon for years to come.  With increasing demands on our time and the pressures of modern living, opportunities to just spend time together are precious and will become a point of connection for years to come.

Greater understanding of one another

Through facilitated reflection, family members will gain greater insight into how they relate to one another and may even learn a few new things about each other.  Family course participants typically report that they feel a deeper and stronger connection with one another.
