What to expect

From canoeing in Northern Ontario to sea kayaking in New Brunswick, no matter what you are looking for, we have a course for you. Our youth courses begin at age 12, and range from five to 32 days in length. You can gain a high school credit, and explore everything from mountains to ocean, rivers to forest. If you would like to learn more, below are a few different types of courses we offer. You can also use the Course Finder above to browse specific trips and dates. It’s time to step out, and look in.

In the words of Outward Bound’s founder, Kurt Hahn, “We are all better than we know and should we be made to realize it, we may never again be prepared to settle for anything less.”

In today’s world, it can be difficult for teens to find the time and space to connect with themselves. This course teaches participants how to use mindfulness to cultivate their inner strength and resilience, all within the context of a physically and mentally challenging backpacking expedition! This is the start of a whole new adventure.
