Outward Bound Australia have been providing outdoor programs for over 60 years in Australia to a diverse range of organisations including schools, community groups, government and private sector. Outward Bound Australia is a not for profit organisation and are the pioneers of outdoor education in Australia.
OBA are offering a unique opportunity specifically tailored for Women who have experienced trauma and loss to participate in a 7 day wilderness program. With a highly trained and experienced team of compassionate female instructors the course will focus predominantly on increasing self-esteem and self-reliance, building supportive relationships with other women and encouraging a sense of “trying something new”. This could be anything from hiking for the first time, sleeping in the outdoors or trying abseiling. All levels of abilities and fitness are catered for.
“Women of Courage” programs have been run successfully for many years through other Outward Bound Schools internationally, in particular Outward Bound Canada. We believe it is time to offer this to Women in our local community.
Participants are facilitated through a challenging and inspirational outdoor journey, including activities like rock climbing and rafting, wilderness hiking expeditions and personal development sessions. These activities encompass our philosophy of “challenge by choice”.
The program is fully funded and will commence at our National Base in Tharwa ACT on 12 June 2017 and finish on 18 June. All equipment, gear, food and local transport are provided to the participants.
Outward Bound will provide group information sessions and one on one Q and A sessions to all participants. A medical form will need to be completed by each participant and will then be screened by OBA staff.
No prior outdoor experience is necessary.
