In early June, Adventure High had the absolute pleasure, for the second year in a row, to team up with Outward Bound Canada to run the Veteran’s Program. Outward Bound Canada’s Veteran’s 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.
This specifically designed program took veterans on a weeklong expedition on Grand Manan Island incorporating sea kayaking as a means of travel and challenge. These veterans taking part are given the opportunity to reflect on and share their experiences and transition challenges in a supportive and restorative environment.
The Bay of Fundy is a perfect place to progress from beginner sea kayaking skills to full ocean travel. Grand Manan provides a complete venue to work as part of a team, connecting and sharing with like-minded individuals while enjoying this land that they served to protect.
It was a great honor to paddle with, share stories and knowledge, laugh, and become friends with these courageous and brave men and women who served our beautiful country. We hope to stay in touch with each and every one of you. Thank you so much for what you do and for experiencing what this beautiful island has to offer.
All the best,
“Where Your Sea Kayaking Begins!”
