Outward Bound Canada’s(OBC) Custom Adult Expeditions are unique programs designed to help participants cultivate the practical skills and qualities needed to thrive as individuals and leaders. Courses are delivered as wilderness-based, experiential journeys where participants have multiple opportunities to practice and receive feedback on their leadership skills in dynamic and challenging environments.
Our custom adult expeditions are 5+ days in duration and expedition options include backpacking, ocean & flatwater canoeing, sea kayaking, and dogsledding. Course elements include training in a range of technical skills for travelling safely and efficiently in the wilderness (e.g. trip planning, navigation & route-finding, risk assessment, camp craft, wilderness skills, ecological awareness), problem-solving challenges, leadership exploration, personal reflection, and small group tasks. Taken together, these elements will be used as a foundation for developing and deepening connections amongst team members.
