Outward Bound is an adventure-based experience located in Anakiwa, Marlborough Sounds that uses the outdoors to challenge participants mentally and physically.

The aim of Outward Bound is to build relationships with community organisations whose mission aligns with that of Outward Bound and to support them in helping their community; Outward Bound's mission being "better people, better communities, better world."

For several years now, Outward Bound has offered SLSNZ a scholarship scheme that has given many of our members the opportunity to try a range of their courses.
