Hurricane Island Outward Bound Directive
(207) 594-5548
Maine & Florida
Diane Smith, Director of Student Services

The Hurricane Island Outward Bound Directive Program is an educational process dealing with motivational and behavioral problems. Its objectives are to build confidence, to increase self-esteem and to increase the sense of personal responsibility in young people between the ages of 14-17. The program is a demanding, 24-day Outward Bound course conducted June to September in the rugged and challenging environment of Maine's mountain wilderness and March to December in the swampy marshlands and river systems of the Florida Panhandle and southern Georgia.

Each course consists of 9-11 boys and girls, with a co-ed team of 3 instructors experienced in the wilderness and in working with young people with emotional and behavioral difficulties. It is designed as a preventive program, working with early stages of behavior problems. The six starting dates for the Florida program are June 11, June 25, July 23, July 30, October 16, and November 12. The four starting dates for the Maine program are June 19, June 26, July 31, and August 8. The starting dates for the ages 18-21 programs are May 15 and September 11.
