Outward Bound Canada’s programs use the challenges and inspiration of the natural environment to allow students to uncover their true potential. We employ adventure-oriented, 21st century learning methodologies to help students build a strong sense of self and community through active and authentic experiences that foster social competence, resilience and environmental responsibility.  As a not-for-profit charitable organization we work with groups to ensure our programs are financially accessible through our Group Access Fund we can help support your desires to get outside.
