Welcome to the 2020 Virtual Crew Olympics
This spring, NYC Outward Bound Schools hosted a Virtual Crew Olympics (VCO) to bring together Crews from across the network to maintain a sense of community and encourage some friendly competition among students during this time of physical distancing. Each middle and high school chose one Crew to represent them at Virtual Crew Olympics. Schools with both a middle and a high school had the option to have a Crew from each.
In May, Crews took part in the Olympic Trials. From June 3-12, the finalists competed in a series of five virtual challenges that required creativity, team-building and communication. On June 16, we celebrated the Closing Ceremonies, where our champions were recognized for their winning work!
