West Coast Women Of Courage – Backpacking

Outward Bound Canada’s Women of Courage program is a wilderness expedition for women who have been on a healing path that follows a self-acknowledged experience of abuse. The programs are made up of a group of up to eight women, accompanied by two female instructors. You will work together to explore and navigate the beautiful landscape surrounding you, connecting with the land, with fellow Women of Courage, and with yourself.

** Please note that due to COVID-19 protocols, you may only register for a course in your province of residence.


Participants with a wide range of physical and mental fitness have successfully completed an Outward Bound Canada course. Our programs are designed for the reasonably fit, regularly active individual with a stable mental fitness and strategies to overcome challenges. It is important to know that the better shape you’re in, the more comfortable you will be on expedition. Our courses are physically demanding and a certain amount of preparation will ensure that you are as comfortable as possible on the course.
