Our veterans courses are open to active duty servicemen and servicewomen and veterans of all conflicts who have deployed as a part of their service. All applicants to our veterans courses will be asked to verify their service with their DD-214 for veterans or deployment documentation for active duty military members.
Veterans are limited to two Outward Bound courses per deployment. You are welcome to enroll on a second course on standby status, but given the limited space available priority will always be given to those who have not attended a course with us previously. However, if you have been re-deployed since your last Veterans’ course, you are welcome to apply again and we will reserve a spot on course for you right away.
PLEASE CHECK YOUR WELCOME EMAIL FOR THE FORMS YOU NEED TO COMPLETE AND RETURN TO YOUR STUDENT SERVICES REPRESENTATIVE.
The following is a list of required forms for all participants. Your Welcome Email is customized for you and may contain additional materials. Please let us know if you have any questions. We’re here to help!
1. Medical Form (to be completed by the participant)
2. Applicant Profile including Veterans Agreement to Cancellation Policy
3. Outward Bound California Liability Release
4. Email/Upload a copy of your DD214 or some other form of identification verifying your military service
Once all the above items have been received, your course advisor will reach out to you to schedule a phone check in.
Please note: We are making a significant commitment to our Military Service Members so it is imperative that once you commit, you follow through and attend the course. If you cancel for reasons other than deployment, you will deplete the funds generously provided by our donors and you will have taken a slot from another deserving service member. Our investment in planning, staffing, and provisioning cannot be recovered in the event of short notice cancellations. If you have to cancel due to some unforeseen emergency, please let your Student Services representative know immediately, as given enough time, we can most likely find another student to fill your slot. Please see our Cancellation Policy for further information.
