The Pursuit Series is a celebration of the outdoors

We created Pursuit to empower our 12M+ online community members with new outdoor skills and knowledge, to push them outside their comfort zones, to overcome their fears and challenges, and to foster support and inclusion within the outdoor industry. We like to think of it as fun…with a purpose.

we’re addressing a common problem:
starting a new outdoor activity can be hard

Most people who love the outdoors have activities that they’ve always wanted to try. Yes, they might already run, hike, or camp…but they’ve always REALLY wanted to try fly fishing, rock climbing, kayaking, backpacking, or mountain biking. But they never have. Why?

It’s usually because they don’t have a friend or a family member who has the knowledge and the equipment required to teach them. And they don’t have any idea where to start. So they don’t.

we’re fixing that

We’ve created an event, and a community, that you can lean on. We have all of the best gear, expert instructors, and hundreds of activities and field sessions for you to choose from. We’ve removed the intimidation of trying something new and created an open, supportive environment that inspires people to push beyond their fears. And we celebrate these firsts together, every night.

The result: a truly one-of-a-kind event

We designed the Pursuit Series as an immersive, 3-day outdoor retreat where all you need to worry about is showing up and having fun, which allows for a real sense of community to develop over the course of the weekend. The atmosphere is filled with joy and camaraderie and attendees leave with a transformative experience to share with others.

We are on a mission to get #everyoneoutside

The Outbound Collective’s goal is to improve access to the outdoors for people of all backgrounds, wherever they're from, and whatever their ability level. We're excited to be working with amazing partners who share this vision of empowering adventure, and who are helping us build a more inclusive outdoor community through education, skill building, and shared experiences.

We hope you can join us this year
