Learning Through Experience
We live in an age where education and information are readily available. However, in an ever-changing world, academic learning isn't enough for success.
The difference between wisdom and education is what separates the visionary from the ordinary. One can have the privilege of an impeccable education but true wisdom can only be acquired through understanding and reflection upon one's experiences.
At Outward Bound Singapore (OBS), we believe that while age old values may be taught in the classroom, they only gain true meaning through real life experience. That's why we are committed to facilitating outdoor learning - so that everyone can understand the value of life changing experiences.
Outward Bound Singapore has been the leader in the field of people-centred development for over 30 years. Since our incorporation into the People’s Association in 1991, we have grown from a humble training facility to an exceptional and unique training and consultation centre for clients from all walks of life. Today, we have programmes ranging from basic student courses to interactive corporate programmes for professional executives.
With our range of courses designed to inculcate a variety of life skills, there’ll be something for everyone at OBS.
On all Outward Bound courses, every activity is carefully planned, tested and fully supervised by qualified full-time instructors.
Each trainer is equipped with the skills and tools to ensure the safety of all participants.
All the equipment we use is subjected to regular and thorough onsite inspections by both internal and external certifying bodies. Our standard operating procedures have been honed from years of experience to ensure that safety standards are strictly adhered to. And, in the event of an emergency, we have a 24-hour medical centre staffed by a team of specially trained nurses.
In addition, all participants are also trained in basic safety procedures to ensure overall safety and the confidence to enjoy their courses with us.
