To make your Outward Bound experience memorable:
- Go in with open-mindedness, lots of socks and thermals!
- Give it a go. Push yourself to your limits because you will feel amazing afterwards
- Try to talk to everyone, even if you don’t like them – it helps!
- It will be over before you know it so enjoy it while you are in the moment, you will regret it if you don’t take in the amazing views and the little things around you.
- Eat whenever you get the chance.
- Do your work or the whole group suffers.
- Bond with your group because it’s worth it and you’ll get to know people better and make new friendships.
