Building Adventure 2023

Philadelphia Outward Bound School's legendary peer-to-peer fundraiser, Building Adventure, is returning on October 20, 2023, and YOU are invited!

Get out of your comfort zone (and have a blast) rappelling 30 stories down the wall of Two Commerce Square in Center City Philadelphia, all while supporting transformative learning opportunities in the outdoors for thousands of Philly students.

Here's how it works: Building Adventure is a peer-to-peer fundraiser, which means individual supporters host personal campaigns to collect donations from their friends, family, and community.

Each fundraiser must raise $1,750 to secure a rappel spot. Fundraising discounts are offered for teams - so gather 6 of your friends and you each only have to raise $1,250 to rappel! (Alumni: join the Alumni Team for an additional fundraising discount!)

Get started today - it's a life-changing opportunity for a great cause!

Your support helps us fund outdoor education programs for more than 60 Philadelphia public and charter schools. In 2021, with the support of our fundraisers/rappelers, we raised over $300,000 to underwrite delivery of our programs to schools, youth-serving nonprofit partners, and students, and we got some great media coverage! With your help, we can do it again this year!
