Passages (OBPA) is an adventurous and challenging 8- or 12-day Outward Bound expedition, specifically designed to guide your passage from adolescent to young man. The course will give you the opportunity to find your individual strengths and learn self-reliance as you live in the outdoors and explore Thompson Island and the waters of Boston Harbor. Working together as a team, you will develop compassion, confidence, leadership and team-building skills.
You will learn how to read nautical charts and navigate within the Boston Harbor Islands National Park Area. Meet new friends, enjoy the great outdoors, and experience a summer adventure that you will remember forever. Passages courses give boys a powerful sense of accomplishment and independence, sending them back into the world as young men. Course groups will typically consist of 10 students and two instructors.
