100 Days that will Change Your Life
We train people to become outdoor educators and guides and open our students eyes to discover their full potential.
There are many reasons to embark on COLT: as a break from your career, a gap year in your education, to learn new outdoor skills, become a guide or educator, retrain from military service, explore Canadian wilderness, to challenge yourself, or become a better leader and team player.
Your Fastest Route to a Career in the Outdoors
The COLT program is one of the fastest and most affordable ways of gaining the experience and training to become an adventure guide or outdoor educator.
Many students are ready for an entry-level position in the field after the program. COLT also offers the opportunity for a work practicum in Outdoor Education at Strathcona Park Lodge.
Friends for Life
You will spend 100 days living and learning with up to 10 COLT colleagues. It’s intimate and incredibly valuable, forcing you to develop leadership and group management skills in a real-world setting.
Students range in age from 19 to 60 from all over the world. All share a love for the outdoors. Expect to make a few lifelong friends.
