Costa Rica Outward Bound & Outward Bound USA?

"Are these related? If so, how?"

These are among some of our most common questions. And simply put, Costa Rica Outward Bound and Outward Bound USA are both under the umbrella organization Outward Bound International.

All Outward Bound Schools worldwide receive their charters via Outward Bound International. OBI is governed by a council made up of representatives from each licensed member school.

The internal vision of Outward Bound International is:

To promote and protect the good name of Outward Bound throughout the world, and to assist in the establishment, development and support of Outward Bound Centers able to provide safe, high quality programs that fulfill the Mission of Outward Bound.

All Outward Bound charters follow this mission:

To help people discover and develop their potential to care for themselves, others
and the world around them through challenging experiences in unfamiliar settings.

The main differences between Costa Rica Outward Bound and Outward Bound USA? Mainly, it's the offered courses. See the web sites (linked in the previous sentence) for course offerings. Oh, and you'll need a passport to come on our Costa Rica Outward Bound courses, of course.
