Outward Bound Australia has been providing outdoor programs for over 60 years in Australia to a diverse range of organisations including schools, community groups, government and the private sector. Outward Bound Australia is a not for profit organisation and are the pioneers of outdoor experiential education in Australia.
OBA is offering a unique opportunity specifically tailored for Women who have experienced trauma and loss to participate in a 7-day wilderness program called “Women of Courage”. The Women of Courage program is intended for women who have progressed through their own personal healing and are ready to challenge themselves in a new setting. 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. 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”.
Ready to reach your potential? Know someone who could benefit from the Women of Courage experience? Enquire online and a friendly staff member will be in touch with more information on the course, or for more detail about specific programs contact:
No prior outdoor experience is necessary and all levels of abilities and fitness are catered for.
An application will need to be completed by each participant including a medical screening form and will then be screened by OBA staff. After we receive this you will be contacted for a telephone interview. The purpose of the interview is to confirm this is the appropriate course and the right time to participate. There will be plenty of time to ask questions to ensure you are making a well-informed decision to attend the program.
