“The only way you can really grow is to be pushed outside of your comfort zone and to extend your comfort zone. That's basically what Outward Bound does. It makes your comfort zone bigger. You don't know what to expect, you've never done this before, so you don't know if you have the strength or the willpower in you to do it. When you do get it done it's just like, 'wow I can actually do this!'... You get to be proud of yourself... It's an amazing experience.”

– Kiyanaw on Bay of Fundy Discovery


In 1969, Outward Bound Canada ran its first course in Keremeos, B.C. That was nearly 50 years ago, and we've come a long way since then - providing challenging journeys of self-discovery in the natural world for nearly 175,000 Canadians from coast to coast.
