POBS Trailblazer Gala a Resounding Success!

Outward Bound friends and family came to The Discovery Center from near and far for POBS's bi-annual Trailblazer Gala on June 5. The event provided an opportunity to celebrate Katie Newsom and Jennifer Raymond, each of whom received the second-ever Founders' Awards, given in recognition of individuals who have showed extraordinary leadership and vision in support of the Philadelphia Outward Bound School. Read more and view photos >

Alumni Enjoy a Day on the Challenge Course

This month local Outward Bound alumni spent a day on the James McLane Family Challenge Course at The Discovery Center. Participants had the opportunity to step out of their comfort zone and challenge themselves, enjoy a pizza lunch, and even try ziplining alongside the Strawberry Mansion Reservoir. Sound like fun? Check out the photos and see if they don't convince you to join us next time!

Read All About It!

This month we had not one but two articles featuring POBS in the media. The Northeast Times profiled the expeditionary adventures of Northeast High School students, and the Chester County Daily Local covered our West Chester connections and OB Pro. Check these stories out at POBS in the News >
