TAPS teens ages 12 to 18 are invited to attend the Teen Adventure at Outward Bound.

Build resiliency, friendships and community. TAPS teens are invited to join us at the TAPS Teen Adventure at Outward Bound, where teens will challenge themselves on a ropes course.

TAPS Teen Adventure with Outward Bound

At this one-day event, for teens 12 to 18 years old, Outward Bound will lead TAPS teens through a ropes course, team-building activities and reflective discussions to create a powerful day of learning. Each teen will walk away from this experience with improved communication skills, strengthened sense of confidence and real-world skills for problem-solving and conflict resolution. 

The TAPS Teen Adventure at Outward Bound will take place at Outward Bound's campus in Baltimore's Leakin Park. As one of the country's largest urban parks, it provides nearly unlimited space for discovery.

Help your teen move find strength and inspiration within themselves — join us for our teen adventure.
