MESSAGE TO PARENTS OF STUDENTS UNDER 18

By sending your child on a Outward Bound Costa Rica course, you are making an investment in their growth and development. In order to maximize their growth potential and to ensure their safety and the safety of the other participants on course, we require that each student reviews and agrees to uphold our Code of Conduct. We are fully dedicated to helping all students challenge themselves and push themselves to complete their courses, but ultimately we cannot force an unwilling student to stay. If a student violates the Code of Conduct they will be removed from their course and sent home at their own expense. Please note that we do not refund course tuitions if a student is expelled from their course.
