Company Description

A local and national treasure, Thompson Island is located in the heart of the Boston Harbor Islands National and State Park. Since 1833, the Island has been a beacon for experiential education, empowering young people through hands-on learning and skill building and outdoor adventure and exploration. 

Our core educational program for Boston public middle school students combine field science, social-emotional learning, and outdoor challenges — all infused with Outward Bound’s unique approach to promoting compassion, leadership, and service. Funded by philanthropy, private events, and fee-for-service offerings, our programs are offered at no cost to families.

Thompson Island Outward Bound is a proud member of the network of 11 Outward Bound schools in the U.S. with a shared mission to change lives through challenge and discovery.
