A wide variety of students attend Outward Bound. You'll probably find that your course has a wide variety of students in terms of age, background, ethnicity, belief system, etc. However, many of our courses have minimum ages that help us and you create a course that has outcomes designed for certain ages. You may also see that some of our courses are designed for the needs of certain groups. That's why we offer such a wide variety of ages and types -- we are dedicated to meeting the needs of all our students. Usually what you'll see is a range that indicates the minimum age - the highest average age (ie 16-20+). This example means that the minimum is 16 years old and students are typically between 16 and 20. The "+" means that we do get some students who are above this age as well.
