The Outward Bound Canada’s Veterans’ Program is designed to help Canadian military veterans face the challenges they often encounter post-deployment, through inspiring journeys of healing and self-discovery in the Canadian wilderness.
Many military men and women struggle with lingering physical and mental impacts of their experiences, including depression, anxiety, isolation, family difficulties, and, in general, with the challenges that often accompany reintegration into civilian life.
These specially designed programs take veterans on week-long expeditions, incorporating activities such as rock-climbing, ski mountaineering, ice-climbing and hiking. Participants are given an opportunity to reflect on and share their experiences and transition challenges in a supportive and restorative environment.
The PPCLI Foundation has supported the Outward Bound Program with a grant of $10,000.
