Outward Bound Romania Symposium

7-10 November 2013

 

This year Outward Bound Romania celebrates the 20th anniversary of its existence. For this occasion we are glad to invite you to join us to celebrate together.

Our story began in 1993 when some intellectuals from Tirgu Mures decided to bring something new to the country. The goal of the organisation was to educate and develop young people using experiential learning methods. The inspired man was Imre Fodor who was in contact with Outward Bound Germany. OB Germany meant a significant source of grants in launching our organization. The first camps were held in the surroundings of Red Lake, Sovata and Bezid, with the participation of 9-12 grader students. Ten years ago we founded in Sovata the International Youth Center with the help of young volunteers. Since 2012 we expanded with a new location in Timisu de Jos (near Brasov) and we hold programs all year round on both locations. Our programs are attended not only by students but also by teachers, educators and organizations/companies with the purpose of teambuildings.
