Outward Bound Canada



Stressing adventure and personal growth through challenging wilderness activities, Outward Bound Canada's programs center around extended canoe expeditions, tracing the remote Indian and trapper routes of northwestern Ontario. Critical-thinking skills, map and compass navigation, environmental awareness and first-aid experience are integrated into the overall Outward Bound educational philosophy. A mountaineering program explores the Rocky Mountains of Alberta. Participants in some programs may earn high school credit in certain programs.
