Judy first became aware of Outward Bound when a presentation was made to her high school Outdoor Challenge Club at age 16. As luck would have it, a last minute spot opened up that summer for a 21 day course in Northern Ontario, and she took it. It was physically and emotionally challenging, and also life changing.
Judy went on to teach canoeing at summer camps and lead canoe trips. Judy moved to the West coast in 1985 and now spends more time in a kayak. She sent her son Ryan to the Rocky Mountain OB Backpacking course for his 16 th birthday. And, in 2015, Judy did an OB course kayaking in Clayoquot Sound to renew her strength and resilience at another stage of life transition. She has been a proud supporter of OB and its programs throughout her life.
She looks forward to giving back to OB in the Reach Beyond - Nahanni River Expedition 2018 this summer.
