Outward Bound Canada Veterans’ courses are designed to mirror select military experiences and offer opportunities to reflect on and discuss your deployment experiences, transition challenges and the impact these have on your lives. Hiking through the mountains is a reflective experience. The beautiful landscape puts our life experiences in perspective, provides space from your day to day, and encouragement from other veterans gives you a safe space to look inward. By the end of this course you will feel a strong connection to your fellow veterans, and will be reconnected with your ability to serve others, to strive for the very best, and not to yield in the face of challenge.
The trip meets up in Revelstoke, BC, and from there we will travel to the Canadian Mountain Holidays Gothics Lodge. This area is rich with beautiful hiking trails and treks taking us off the beaten path. An Outward Bound course is not a guided trip, it is an immersive experience led by you and your group. This course is designed to be accessible for veterans of all ages and fitness levels, staying in CMH lodges at night and only carrying a light daypack for your hikes.
Thanks to the generous support of individual donors, corporations and a number of dedicated foundations, Outward Bound Canada is able to offer Veterans’ courses free-of-charge. All course fees, equipment, meals, accommodations, gear, clothing and travel expenses are provided without any fee to the participant.
