About

Since the very first Upward Bound in 1996, hundreds of young Christians have attended and taken up the challenge of engaging with the Lord. It is a joy every year to make new friends, reconnect with old ones and see what the Lord has for us in His Word.

Run with a passion for seeing Christians build deeper relationships with the Lord Jesus Christ, these two weeks looks to enable attendees to grow mentally, emotionally and spiritually to live a life of joy and victory for God.

It would be a privilege to have you join us this summer. More details can be found around the site and be sure to check out what past attendees has said about their time with us below.

Testimonials

Stanley

I am a 5 year veteran of Upward Bound and I still look forward to it every single time. Both the first week of study at the university and the second week in Algonquin Park are unbelievable experiences. Not only is this a great place to meet new people from all across the world but over the course of the two weeks you will feel like you have dived head-first into the Word of God.

Upward Bound is a place where you dig deeper into Scripture. It is where I was encouraged to study the bible. It is also a place where friendships are built that go beyond language or geographical borders.

I came away from every summer with a profound gratitude for something like this even existing. Upward Bound has always been a place that provides so much: excellent teaching, personal spiritual development, close Christian fellowship, wonderful laughs, fun activities, and, most importantly, a chance to grow closer to the Lord.

The Bible teaching was excellent - I enjoyed the variety of ministry, and especially appreciated the practical suggestions drawn out from local veterans in the Lord's work.

Upward Bound has given me two primary gifts over my years of attendance and participation: spiritual growth and meaningful relationships. I would heartily recommend both weeks of Upward Bound to anyone. The fun of the first week and the adventure of the second week are unparalleled. There is nothing else out there quite like it!
