WHAT THEY SAY
'' Tired, hungry, exhausted, dirty; and yet at the same time you feel accomplished, proud and have more confidence than before. Outward Bound has been one of the most amazing memories ever in my life. ''

'' So technically if I could summaries this, I would say so far it’s the best thing that has happened in my life! ''
- Ubenathi Sakah -
'' I thought I would not be strong enough physically. I remember even warning my team that I might be a liability, but I proved myself wrong. Being selfless and learning to compromise is a huge challenge, especially for me. I am someone who prefer to do things on my own, but teamwork really does strengthen us. ''
- Raymond Ackerman Academy Programme -
'' At Outward Bound I have learnt lots of things e.g. overcoming my fears and learning how to work in a group and to help others instead of being negative. ''

'' Outward Bound was one of the toughest experiences of my life. It taught me endurance and perspective as well as to push myself. ''

'' Hi OBSA team! I just got back from a 3 day camp with Raymond Ackerman Academy at the Robertson venue. It was intense and was mentally, physically and somewhat emotionally challenging but nontheless I enjoyed every second of it and would not let the chance to do it again slip through my fingers! ''
