Through immense grass roots fundraising efforts, the Outward Bound Mazama basecamp will reopen for the summer 2013! But we still need help!
I started working as an instructor for Outward Bound in 2009. For those who don't know what Outward Bound does, from the outside it looks like a bunch of kids on a backpacking trip or a sea kayaking trip for 2 weeks. It looks like fun, and it looks like beautiful places. It is so much more than that. Outward Bound programming is rich and deep; it challenges people of all ages to push themselves, to think introspectively, to broaden their perspectives and horizons, and to acheive more than they ever thought was possible. It creates an opportunity to become better as people, to practice excellence in actions and compassion for others. Time on an Outward Bound course changes lives-- it has changed mine. Please help us meet our goal by giving a gift of any amount!
