TEN YEARS AGO this summer, Stephanie Rawlings reported for a three-and-a-half week Outward Bound course prepared for anything -- anything, that is, but really roughing it.Hair dryer, make-up, clothes. You name it, she had packed it. As the instructors surveyed her luggage, weeding out all the items she would learn to live without, she began to learn the difference between frills and necessities.She did manage to sneak a hair brush past their eagle eyes by hiding it in her clothes.And for the next few weeks she provided a stream of cynical commentary worthy of a self-described 16-year-old "priss."

NINE STUDENTS from Wilde Lake High School, led by English teacher Cindy Drummond, spent five days in late October hiking and climbing rocks on the Appalachian Trail near Gettysburg, Pa."I don't think I'll ever forget it," Drummond said. "Sometimes it takes a change of location to find aspects of yourself that were always there, but hadn't surfaced yet."Student participants were Anthony Davis, James Guillory, Latoyia Newman, Ian Ross, Ron Stringer, Mike Walker, Jerome Parkinson, Asmar Hagler and Raney Holmes.

COLLEGE PARK -- On a hot, sunny Wednesday morning, a group of some 170 first-year MBA students are bent over in a field of grass, holding their ankles, shuffling backward and quacking like ducks.The exercise is meant to dissolve the inhibitions that make them afraid to look silly in front of others. Right now, trust me, they look silly. I say this reluctantly, however, because I'm among them.These University of Maryland graduate business students are here to build teamwork and communication skills, to learn how to lead and to follow, and to step outside of what their Outward Bound guides call their personal "comfort zone."

I remember one steamy, hot evening, sitting on the stoop of my inner-city tenement, along with my teen-age friends. We were heavy into conversation with a youth outreach worker when he uttered words that ring clear in my head to this day. "When you feel like garbage," he said about a friend who had just been picked up by the police, "you act like garbage."In my case and that of many of my friends, family, sports and community organizations such as Boys Clubs bolstered our self-esteem and enabled us to set our goals high.

Eight of us stood on a dock opposite Manhattan on the East River one summery Sunday morning waiting to board a 26-foot sailboat that didn't look much bigger than a dinghy. Ranging in age from 30 to 60, we had all signed up for a one-day Outward Bound course, "Circumnavigating Manhattan by Pulling Boat." I'd chosen this adventure because while I'd seen parts of the world's most populated island by ferryboat, speedboat, yacht and even kayak, I'd never gone around the entire perimeter of Manhattan by boat.

Nothing helps mold a cohesive girls soccer team like skipping practice to go rock climbing. Just ask Wilde Lake. The Wildecats, 9-4 overall and 6-2 in Howard County, have looked both brilliant and erratic this season, evidenced by their 2-1 upset of then-No. 2 River Hill on Oct. 2, which they followed with a 3-2 loss to unranked Atholton. But during the final two weeks of the county season, arguably no team has been better, as Wilde Lake has earned four straight wins, knocking off Long Reach, Oakland Mills, Centennial and Glenelg by a combined score of 18-4.

OUTWARD BOUND conjures images of rock climbers, white-water rafters, camping in the wilderness and other physical feats of courage. That was the perception that Century High School's Pam Boan had to dispel when she approached teachers and staff members working to open the new South Carroll school. She was using a workshop, funded by a grant, and held by the Chesapeake Bay Outward Bound Program, to promote teamwork, leadership and problem solving. Boan, a guidance counselor, felt it would foster camaraderie, trust and teamwork among the new staff and teachers.

The five days Jim McVay spent in the woods with nine of his friends were, by his description, the "toughest" days of his life."There were a lot of challenges I had to face," said the 17-year-old senior at Broadneck High School. "But I would do it again in a heartbeat."Jim and his friends, together with a faculty adviser, spent those chilly October days in Greenridge State Forest in Cumberland County as part of an Outward Bound program that teaches leadership and builds trust. Broadneck is one of two Anne Arundel County schools participating in the program, said Rene Domengauer, program coordinator at Broadneck.

Rod Kramer only agreed to take the lessons to please his teen-age son. He never figured on having so much fun."I hated snowboarding. I'm a skier," the Coloradan explained. "But we learned to snowboard together, falling down and laughing and feeling inept. I had a ball."That was two winters ago. Kramer and his 16-year-old son, Andrew, have since become committed and accomplished snowboarders. The best part, they agree: sharing that learning curve.More parents and kids are using vacations to do exactly that, learning to scuba dive and rock climb, windsurf and sail, even to skeet shoot together.
