With close to 30 Chapters across the United States, DiscoveryBound Outreach has the exciting opportunity to bring teens and adults together from all parts of the country! In addition to several Regional Seasonal Events each year, we host a National Annual Event as well.

What you can expect

  • The National Event will take place annually in late summer (often over Labor Day weekend).
  • A metaphysical theme will be the core focus.
  • The schedule will include a track devoted to teens, their interests and timely discussion topics.
  • Another track will be offered for adults. Chapter Workers, those interested in starting an Outreach Chapter, DB Ambassadors and all adults interested in DiscoveryBound are welcome to attend.

Stay tuned for the announcement of the 2022 National Event!

NATIONAL EVENT 2021- Thank you for joining us!

We had a blast with each of the groups in Southern California, Missouri, and New England! We are so grateful for a wonderful group across the country that came to join in the fun and fellowship! Here are a few highlights from the participants:

Southern California:

“Just love DiscoveryBound and the fun times I have with you! A delightful break in my usual very crazy and busy current schedule.”

“Good inspirational talk. Good vibe from DB staff and the whole activity. Well-led with a light touch.”

“I had a wonderful time seeing old friends and making new ones! The inspirational talk was very relevant and helpful.”

“Connecting with other CS individuals is very important to growing closer to God, at least for me… to surround myself in the love of CS and reconnect with peers.”

“Had a blast playing the games with everyone and meeting new people.”

“Loved Evan’s talk to consider how we are all with God along the journey. Great ideas about the temple and how that symbolizes the journey from sense to soul.”

New England: 
“I really enjoyed the talk by Lari Snorek, and enjoyed particularly how relatable she made her talk to those not familiar with CS at the event. Obviously also loved the activities at the event too like mini golf and batting cages. Loved the joy expressed in those!”

“It was so much fun to see the teens interact. Highlights include spending time with great people, having fun in the batting cages, and getting to know fellow church members even better through a round of mini-golf. And what’s better than Kimball’s ice cream?”

“The talk given by a practitioner was very helpful in giving a sense of calm about scary aspects in our lives and by giving a sense of true freedom found in God.”

Thank you to all who came! We hope you will join us again next year for another exciting National Event!  Check out the photos from this event here!

DB Outreach: All-Ages Southern California Whale Watch & Marine Life Exploration
Dec 4 all-day

Event Flyer Adult / Family Registration

Southern California Whale Watch and Marine Life Exploration – All Ages

Join DiscoveryBound for an experience you won’t forget.

With a focus on education, the Ocean Institute’s marine educators will take our group on a chartered expedition for people of all ages on the R/V Sea Explorer (a 65’ research vessel).  Enjoy your time with friends, old and new, as we search for ocean life including whales, dolphins, sea lions and many others. We will learn about the ocean from top to bottom while searching for some of the world’s largest and smallest creatures during the 2.5-hour long whale watching adventure. The Ocean Institute provides the only whale watching trip in Dana Point that allows you to be marine biologists for the day.

Back at the institute we will have a tasty lunch followed by an inspiring talk.  It’s a great opportunity to share with others and meet new friends while learning about ocean life!
