Students Learn ‘Above All, Compassion’

Compassion: Demonstrating concern and acting with a spirit of respect and generosity in service to others

On Thompson Island we value self-reliance, craftsmanship, service, and above all, compassion, as part of Outward Bound’s unique approach to character development. Boston public middle schoolers who take part in our programming are challenged to grow in these values.

Below students share how they experienced one of these values, compassion, during their 5-week summer program.
