About this program

highlights

Get out. Look in. Established in 1969, Outward Bound Canada cultivates leadership and resilience through inspiring and challenging journeys of self-discovery in the natural world. By joining our authentic, transformational outdoor adventures, you’ll explore Canada at its finest, reach beyond your own boundaries, and tap in to your true potential.

A not-for-profit, educational organization, we've helped over 150,000 Canadians to step out of their comfort zone and discover "there's more in you than you know." Whether it's exploring Canada's iconic East or West Coasts, the beauty of the Rocky Mountains or Northern Ontario, or hidden gems in Toronto or Hamilton, the journey of a lifetime is ready... are you?


The Our Kids review of Outward Bound Canada

our take

Outward Bound was an early adopter/promoter of some of the things that are very much in the air today, namely providing young people with an opportunity to grow leadership skills, resilience, and grit. Getting people out of their comfort zones has been the operating principle since it was founded in 1969, though the basis in the values of ecological stewardship has also been a key component. The programs offered, included these summer sessions for young people, are well within the category of lifetime experiences: each is unforgettable, both for the sense that participants gain of the geography of Canada, and the sense that they gain of the geography of their skills, abilities, and capabilities. It’s not an understatement to say that these programs can be life changing, as they often are in a whole range of positive ways. For kids bumping up against the boundaries of their school and social environments, and Outward Bound trip can provide a welcome opportunity to spread their wings in significant, meaningful ways, all within a safe and supportive setting, guided by experienced, expert instructors.

The Power of Outward Bound

Throughout my experience on this course I have not only been able to improve my physical activity level but I have been able to realize things like no challenge is too big, or I can do anything I put my mind to, or finding the person who I actually am. All in all, this course has not only given me mental and physical tools that will last me a lifetime, but it has given me the tools to change my life to how I wish.
