Outward Bound Canada’s Veterans’ Program was designed to support military veterans through an introduction to a healthy lifestyle in great outdoors, in the company of fellow veterans. Thanks to generous donors of the program, we hosted hundreds of veterans on week-long expeditions, incorporating activities such as rock-climbing, ski mountaineering, sea-kayaking and hiking. Participants had opportunities to reflect on and share their experiences and challenges in a supportive and restorative environment. Most recently, we also hosted youth of Canadian Armed Forces families on journeys of self-discovery in the Canadian wilderness.
Outward Bound Canada has one Program for Veterans scheduled for the 2021 season. We recommend that Veterans of the Canadian Armed Forces seek opportunities for challenge, healing and personal growth through: True Patriot Love Canada and Wounded Warriors Canada and through their local Royal Canadian Legion.
The Veterans’ Program at Outward Bound Canada was made possible by generous donors including the Royal Canadian Legion in local program areas, True Patriot Love, the Webster Foundation, Brett Wilson, and Wounded Warriors, and other individual donors and alumni supporters. We would like to thank all of the staff who showed tremendous dedication and commitment to the Veterans’ Program over the years. We would also like to extend our gratitude to the veterans themselves who showed up ready and gave it their all. Thank you for your service!
