Outdoor education for all

We believe that there is untapped potential in every young person. Our fun adventure-based learning methodologies not only help youth unlock their potential, but also foster resilience, a sense of community and environmental stewardship. We do this in three ways:

Customized field trips for schools and groups

Our comprehensive field trip solutions are tailored to schools and groups, offering experiences that go beyond the ordinary.

Whether it’s fostering teamwork, improving leadership skills or simply creating a deep connection with nature, we offer carefully crafted programs for your needs.

Summer & March Break Programs for teens  

From canoeing in Ontario to backpacking in the Rocky Mountains, no matter what you’re looking for, we have the right course for you.

Our courses range from five to 32 days and are suitable for ages 9 to 19.


The Outward Bound Canada Training Academy for Outdoor Professionals provides fully funded outdoor leadership training through workshops, outdoor journeys, virtual learning, mentorship and certifications to develop the next generation of outdoor leaders.
