ABOUT OUTWARD BOUND CANADA:
Since 1969, over 150,000 people have taken part in an Outward Bound experience in Canada. Our courses compel you to dig deep. With encouragement and support, you transcend the illusion of limitations, and find new strength and confidence within yourself. It's a total workout for the body, mind and spirit.
Outward Bound courses are challenging, exhilarating journeys that take place in Canada's most beautiful wilderness - the majestic peaks of BC's Coast Mountains, the scenic inlets and ancient rainforest of Clayoquot Sound, the remote and historic waterways of northern Ontario and Quebec's boreal forests, and the Bay of Fundy's world-renowned tides and towering cliffs.
The wilderness will be your classroom. The lakes, rivers, forests, mountains, and oceans provide the challenges. Some of these challenges will be physical - launching a sea kayak into the rolling waves off of the west coast of Vancouver Island, climbing a rugged peak, or portaging a canoe through a sun-dappled forest. Other challenges are more subtle, such as developing your leadership skills or learning to work effectively as a member of a team. As the course progresses your technical and decision-making abilities grow, offering the opportunity to shift responsibilities from the instructors to you and your group.
