Outward Bound Monaco had the honour of hosting Prince Albert on Monday, December 5 at the Yacht Club of Monaco, in a setting that was both intimate and prestigious, to recognise and reward the achievements of the 32 young people who excelled in Outward Bound Courses in the UK during July and August 2016.

HSH awarded certificates to each of the achievers and then took the time to meet the young people and hear firsthand about their experiences, a privileged moment that the Outward Bounders both enjoy and value.

Outward Bound Monaco, which enjoys the High Patronage of HSH Prince Albert II and HRH Prince Andrew, the Duke of York, is a registered charity which provides organisation and access to the outstanding facilities and adventures of the Outward Bound organisation in the UK (mainly in the Lake District and Wales areas) to children all over the Europe.

Activities include rock climbing, camping, orienteering, canoeing, bridge, raft building, environmental education and mental challenges. Since its formation in 2004, OBM has already sent over 300 participants from the Cote d’Azur on amazing OB experiences in the past 12 years and this year’s success was no exception.

Michael Peagram, President of Outward Bound Monaco said: “The outdoor activities are not only sporting and enjoyable, but they are character forming and they take our young people into a new sphere of challenge, bravery and self-discovery. At the same time as having fun, they are learning skills for life such as resilience, leadership, and team building. In today’s fast changing and uncertain world Outward Bound is an environment where maturity and determination are grown.”

All travel arrangements are organised and supervised by the Monaco Outward Bound team and the life changing courses are delivered by Outward Bound UK.
