Outward Bound Environmental Expeditions (OBEE) is a 14-day sailing expedition that gives students the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of seamanship while studying the natural world that surrounds them. Along with 9 other students, you will explore the wonders of Massachusetts Bay from the Boston Harbor Islands National Park Area to the shores of Cape Ann. Home to some of nature’s richest ecosystems, Cape Ann provides an exceptional outdoor classroom for ocean bound science discovery. You will learn to navigate along the Massachusetts coastline, get a first hand view of coastal ecosystems, develop outdoors skills, and conduct science experiments.
OBEE will focus on sailing and safety tactics as well as marine conservation and the “science of the sea.” Outward Bound programs emphasize leadership, teamwork, character development, fun and adventure. Our goal is to help students develop confidence, determination, a sense of responsibility and compassion for others.
