The Wilderness as a Classroom

Listen Now

Outward Bound students run up mountains, tie knots in the rain, and tackle ropes courses. The well-known program takes groups on outdoor trips to challenge them physically and mentally. Colorado was the first place in the United States to offer an Outward Bound course, and this year marks its 50th anniversary. Andrea Dukakis speaks with Luis Benitez, who's been with Outward Bound for two decades, first as a group leader and now as a member of the Board.
