Summer Outdoor Adventures
PAD1O – PAD4O
These credits are open to students in Grades 9 through to 12, and to those graduating grade 8. Students participate in various group initiatives to develop leadership and decision making. Those initiatives include paddling down rapids and camping at some of the most beautiful spots imaginable. This is 100% outdoor adventure, 0% classroom.
Leadership and Peer Support
This grade 11 credit is open to all students, excepting Grade 8 graduates. It is an engaging way to learn about supporting others and developing conflict resolution skills while hiking through the woods, paddling down a river or swinging 50 feet in the air. This course is also 100% outdoor adventure.
This Grade 12 University/College preparation course ups the ante in terms of responsibility and facilitation. It includes all of the heart-pounding adventure of whitewater paddling, the hard work of long camping trips and the joys of finding your feet in a brand new group of peers. It gives extra focus to a student’s development of their own unique leadership style and ability to help inspire and guide their peers.
May be used towards College or University Admission. This course requires a student already have completed a Physical Education or Outdoor Education course.
Older students are encouraged to consider our 4-credit program, where students earn four full credits for assuming a supportive leadership role on three 13-day summer programs.
Parents are encouraged to contact Steven Gottlieb to explore the nuance of this program in greater detail.

Q: How much does each course cost?
Each course is $2,600.
Q: Do I have to do a lot of work?
Yes – but not classroom work. We have long days with lots of things to try. Paddling, group discussions, team challenges and, yes, there are chores – but these are no big deal. Come prepared for long days. We work and play hard at Boundless.
Thanks for sending us back a kid who is more interested in life and who is pleased with his achievements and who talks glowingly about his time at Boundless!
Our son was thoroughly inspired by his experience, he loved it…he is changed forever, as you promised.
