North Carolina Outward Bound Helps Parents & Teens Bridge Generation Gap

Imagine addressing issues such as communication, personal responsibility and conflict resolution while backpacking and rock climbing in the Southern Appalachian Mountains. In addition to being fun, these wilderness courses provide mothers and fathers, daughters and sons the perfect forum for strengthening their family ties. After all, itís not often families have a chance to get away from the hectic nature of work, school, and extracurricular activities to spend uninterrupted time together.

In addition to learning technical skills, students also spend time learning about wilderness safety, environmental issues, community service and personal responsibility.

North Carolina Outward Bound offers a variety of courses from mountaineering, backpacking, rock climbing and mountain biking to whitewater paddling and sea kayaking. The Schoolís adventure areas include the Western North Carolina Mountains, North Carolina Outer Banks, Bahamas, Florida Ten Thousand Islands and the Chilean Andes. Courses range in length from four to 78 days, and prices start around $695.
