Outward Bound runs Adapted courses for secondary school students with physical and intellectual disabilities.

These courses are fully funded thanks to Outward Bound’s generous supporters and donors. The only cost to students is getting a pre-course medical done by a GP and travel to and from Picton.
Our Adapted courses range from 5-8 days and are based in the Marlborough Sounds. Students build confidence, resilience, and make new friends through activities such as sailing, waka ama, ropes course, and camping. Upcoming course dates are below.

For school-aged (16 to 21yrs) youth with an intellectual disability.
