Help us re-open the legendary Mazama basecamp for the Northwest Outward Bound School!

The irreplaceable Outward Bound base in Mazama, WA has served students canoeing on Ross Lake, mountaineering and backpacking in the North Cascades, and sea kayaking in the San Juan Islands. Our students come from all corners of the country and leave our little valley as more compassionate and self-aware leaders in their communties. As an instructor, this school and this place has helped me develop my own sense of self as an educator, mentor, and friend. It means the world to me!

Please help us re-open our doors (and meadow, Camp Dube, boathouse, food room, gear room, and lodge!) in 2013 by donating what you can or spreading the word. Thank you!
