[Colorado Outward Bound School. Report of the Director, 1968.]
Nold, Joseph J.
The Colorado Outward Bound School has continued its traditional program of providing leadership students of high caliber with stress and success experiences in an outdoor environment which are designed to facilitate personal growth in each student. The activities on expeditions are planned so that each individual is confronted in a way that maximizes this growth and forces him to develop in areas of need. The special programs developed by the school in cooperation with other agencies (industrial and social) follow the same format, with the emphasis that the experiences gained through the program are catalytic to the agencies' follow-up programs. The special programs enrolling 765 students in 1968 were aimed at the hard core unemployed, the urban disadvantaged, school underachievers, and college freshman orientation. The report reports on each of the summer courses and model programs, and a brief vita describing each of the 41 staff members. Also included are various statistics concerning an enrollment breakdown, quotes from student journals, the 1969 course schedule, and a reprint of "Outward Bound: Education Unlimited," by Gary Templin.
