About us

Thompson Island Outward Bound is a proud member of the network of 11 Outward Bound sites in the U.S. who share the mission of changing lives through challenge and discovery. At Thompson Island Outward Bound, we believe every student can discover the freedom of possibility, as students move from “I can’t” and “I’m not” to “I can.”

Through our partnership with the Boston Public Schools, each year thousands of students board the Thompson Island Outward Bound ferry to discover who they are and all they can become on an island classroom that spans 204 acres of salt marshes, woods, campsites, labs, dormitories and dozens of challenge structures.
