“I think this experience has been absolutely life changing for her. I don’t know where she would be without it.” – Parent of Intercept Student
Hear what other parents and students have to say about how the Intercept program has changed their lives:
Intercept is an Outward Bound program designed for teens and families that need help navigating the oftentimes rough transition from adolescence to adulthood. Typical Intercept students may be struggling in school, have conflict with family and have anger management issues that stem from family conflicts. We help these families forge a path to a brighter future.
For decades, Outward Bound has been committed to helping troubled teens and families face their unique challenges. Intercept is our award-winning program for teens that have started down a destructive path. Intercept is the recipient of the Society for Adolescent Medicine’s 2009 Hillary E.C. Millar Award for Innovative Approaches to Adolescent Health Care.
Intercept is designed for teens who are 12-17 and young adults from 18-20 years of age.
The wilderness of course! We offer Intercept courses across the country, where students will engage in programs that last from 20-50 days. Students face wilderness obstacles such as river canoeing, rock climbing, kayaking, backpacking, solo expeditions and personal challenge events.
Intercept students return from their experiences with a new outlook on life, better communication skills, anger management tools and sense of purpose. Students truly get to know themselves and prove to themselves they can do a lot more than they ever thought they could!
