As someone who's completed a Philadelphia Outward Bound School course, you can count yourself among a special group of people who have pushed themselves far beyond they ever thought possible.

Now it's time to transfer the skills you learn on course back home and become a leader in your community! As an alumni to our school we encourage you to stay in touch, share your memories and pass on your knowledge.

To serve, to strive and not to yield. 

ATTENTION OUTWARD BOUND ALUMNI IN THE PHILADELPHIA AREA!

You are invited to an Alumni Hike and Cookout on Sunday, September 26th at the Discovery Center!

Join Philadelphia Outward Bound staff to hike on Boxers Trail, connect with other alumni, and hear what POBS is up to!

Get the details and RSVP here >

HOW TO GET INVOLVED

BLOG GUEST WRITERS


We love hearing about your experiences on course and so do other alums! Written by alumni, for alumni, this is a great place to not only rekindle that feeling of adventure, but to share your story as well. We encourage all of our alumni to get involved and write a short piece. It is a great way to publish some of your writing and engage your fellow alums.
