“Rekindle the spirit of humanism through contact with the natural world” -Jim Boulding
Born out of a shortage of outdoor guides in the industry
The program was created as a way to educate future leaders through an immersive experience. Jim dedicated his life to creating a place where people could “rekindle the spirit of humanism” through contact with the natural world and COLT is a natural extension of this work.
The ripple effect of COLT
Our alumni often go on to become leading outdoor guides, land stewards and educators around the world. Through COLT, we continue the “ripple effect” that Jim devoted so much of his life to, impacting communities and lives across B.C. and beyond.
We have so many amazing memories from the COLT program that we wish to share these places with others. Therefore, this summer we have helped arrange and are guiding a tour on Vancouver Island!
