Outward Bound Pilot

After lots of hard work, in late September, Outward Bound Chesapeake Bay and the 2nd LT Richard W. Collins III Foundation launched our joint pilot program: Building Bridges. This groundbreaking program connects ROTC Cadets from our partner schools Bowie State University and University of Maryland, College Park which — despite being only a few miles away from each other — have long seemed worlds apart.

During the program’s first activation on September 17th, 40 ROTC students — 20 from Bowie State University and 20 from the University of Maryland — joined at the Chesapeake Bay Outward Bound School base camp in Baltimore for a full day of team building exercises, shared challenges, and fun on a high ropes course.

With cadets from both schools reveling in the joy of building a new community and camaraderie, this first event of what will be many was a smashing success.
