Outward Bound Canada – Rocky Mountains Backpacking for Veterans

Rocky Mountain Backpacking for Veterans is a program designed to support military veterans through an introduction to a healthy lifestyle in great outdoors, in the company of fellow veterans. Thanks to generous donors of the program, we hosted hundreds of veterans on week-long expeditions, incorporating activities such as rock-climbing, ski mountaineering, sea-kayaking and hiking. Participants had opportunities to reflect on and share their experiences and challenges in a supportive and restorative environment. Most recently, we also hosted youth of Canadian Armed Forces families on journeys of self-discovery in the Canadian wilderness.
