I couldn’t be more excited about the upcoming trip down the Nahanni River. I have been fortunate to have gone on a still water paddle back in 2015 with Outward Bound in Algonquin Park but this will be my first white water adventure. My connection to Outward Bound and insight into the incredible work they are consistently doing comes through work as they are one of Grip Limited clients. Looking forward to getting going in a few week’s time!

I just want to thank you so much for sponsoring my granddaughter to attend the Outward Bound camp. I picked her up yesterday and she had the BEST time!! She loved the experience so much, she said it was hard, but she learned so much, she made great friends and she said it really helped her come out of her shell and bring out the leader in her. She loved Rachel, one of the guides, and said she helped her so much in numerous ways. I can just hear the excitement and confidence in her voice.
Again, thank you so much for giving Shylah this opportunity!

I have learned not to walk into something new with set expectations, and to keep an open mind. I learned a variety of new skills in this trip which I would carry out for the rest of my life, such as how to build a fire and get appropriate firewood, to equally divide roles as a team, how to successfully identify and use medical equipment. As a whole, I definitely learned that you should always work as a team. My biggest success was going rappelling and my best memory, favourite part of the experience, was meeting so many new friends and getting really close to them.
