Costa Rica Outward Bound welcomes El Colegio Europeo

Costa Rica Outward Bound is well known for its semester and summer courses, but what you may not know is that we also offer educational institutions, corporate groups, social organizations, friends and families the opportunity to design and experience their “own” Outward Bound experience—we call this a “custom course” Shawn Pendergrass is our Custom Course Manager and is involved at all stages of creating custom courses with interested groups.

El Colegio Europeo, located in Heredia (Costa Rica), has been doing custom courses with us every year, for nearly 10 years!  The first week of October, 20 students and teachers from El Colegio Europeo will start this year’s Outward Bound adventure by hiking around Santa Maria de Dota.  Along the way, they will be studying the flora and fauna of Costa Rica, and then camp out under the stars.

From there, they will continue to hike all the way to Rancho Tinamu.  When they are not playing in waterfalls, they will participate in an educational tour of a thoroughly eco-sustainable farm.  After a few nights at Rancho Tinamu, the school will continue to hike down to Londres, which is a farming village just outside of Quepos/Manuel Antonio.  While they are in the area, the students are going to visit the world-celebrated Manuel Antonio National Park and spend some time at the beach!

Some of our fave instructors-- Orlando Zamora, Mauren Granados, Alexandra Cervantes, and Antonio Lopez—will be working with this group the first week of October.  Please do not hesitate to contact our Custom Course Manager, Shawn Pendergrass, at custom@crrobs.org if you would like to learn more about how to create and design your own Costa Rica Outward Bound experience!
