What Our
Are Saying

Some words from past participants.

    “Participating in Outward Bound Canada’s Training Academy for Outdoor Professionals was a transformative experience for me. I learned how to take care of myself and others on the traditional territory of my ancestors, the Coast Salish peoples; something that I wish I would have learned sooner. As a BC-certified teacher, I am more inspired than ever. Thank you OBC instructors and participants for opening new doors and fuelling my fire.”

    Shaylin Warren

    “The Training Academy provided incredible professional development that I will be able to utilize in all aspects of my outdoor career.”

    Alia Bickson

    “I would like to acknowledge the huge impact the Training Academy had on my skills working with youth in the outdoors. This month I wrapped up the forest school program I’ve been teaching and I’m grateful for all the training I received through OBC as I believe it helped me to become a better mentor.”

    Mariya Tsehtik

    “The Outward Bound Training Academy was one of the most grounding and memorable experiences of my life. For me, it was about wanting to unplug from the stresses of modern life and step into a new industry/community that I’ve desperately wanted to explore and be apart of for years. I got to do just that, and I feel deeply fortunate to have been chosen for it. I took away so many meaningful connections, life skills, and incredible moments that I’ll cherish forever. I hope I can pay forward the benefits of this program to anyone else I come across who has even a fleeting interest in working in the outdoors.”
