Hurricane Island Outward Bound School 

This 7-day journey is an opportunity for 14 – 17 year old high school students who have lost an immediate family member and are seeking a fresh challenge in a unique environment and team setting. Through the generous support of the New York Life Foundation and other donors, this program is being offered at a reduced tuition cost. Additional need-based scholarships are also available.

Every summer we receive testimonials like the following that wonderfully sum up the experience:

“This trip, one that I will never forget, allowed me to find solace with other individuals who have experienced similar losses and felt the same stages of grief ... it was an opportunity to open up and release the suffering and emotions into a safe space filled with caring hearts and kind ears.” – Tom, 17, Hollis, NH

Intended to provide respectful healing experiences in a wilderness environment, Outward Bound Grieving Teens courses implement personal growth methodologies and a simple support model that honors the griever. The grief work that is purposefully woven into every aspect of the curriculum is not intended to provide therapy, but rather to facilitate an environment where young people can connect, build relationships and share in a relevant healing experience with real-world outcomes. Participants begin to build an inclusive, supportive “crew” on day one as they join in a nightly discussion circle, acknowledge their shared losses and begin the healing process. As they tackle problem-solving challenges and engage in high impact activities such as rock climbing or ropes courses, students experience moments of self-discovery and also reinforce their new community of support – their grieving crewmates.
