Alumni Re-Bound Weekend Contests - Outward Bound Canada Outward Bound Canada

Share your story beyond the campfire, and Win a spot on a three-day Re-Bound Weekend this Summer!

As we reflect on 50 years of authentic adventure in the outdoors we want to reconnect with our alumni and hear more about the journeys of the 150,000 individuals who have experienced life-changing adventures through Outward Bound Canada.

We are giving away 10 places each on our two Re-Bound Weekends, exclusively for our alumni! We will be a canoeing in Algonquin Park from June 21-23 for our first Re-Bound Weekend in Ontario. We will be hiking in the North Cascade Mountains just outside of Hope, B.C. from June 28-30 for our second Re-bound Weekend.

To enter to win a spot, submit your story through our official form telling us about your Outward Bound journey(s). Consider some of the questions below as prompts to help you reflect on different aspects of your experience, but you’re encouraged to share freely and creatively on what you consider the most significant and memorable parts of your journey.

  • Where and when did you participate on an Outward Bound course?
  • What do you remember about your fellow participants, instructors and the landscapes through which you travelled?
  • What was the biggest challenge you faced, and how did you overcome it?
  • Do you have any humorous or poignant stories to tell?
  • How have you used the skills and confidence you developed during your course subsequently in life?
  • Why would you like to join us for a Re-Bound Weekend?

Here are some suggestions on how to submit a great story:

  • If possible, take some time to take a look through some photos or your course, or your journal.
  • Get outdoors to write or record your video for some additional inspiration!

Entries will be judged on the authenticity, quality and content of the submission in relation to the extent to which the entrant has reflected on their Outward Bound experience, its subsequent impact on their life, and their reasons for wanting to participate in an Outward Bound Canada Re-Bound Weekend.

You can share your story in writing (up to 1,000 words) or via video (up to 5 minutes in length).

Remember to review the official contest rules here before entering!

When you're done, return to our alumni page to see what else we have going on for our bounders.
