Our non-profit organization stands out by helping teens reach their highest potential through Experiential Education in our adventures.

What is Experiential Education? Experiential Education in its simplest form is “learning by doing.” This learning style engages learners with hands-on experiences, fostering knowledge, expertise, beliefs, and personal growth through reflection.

Can you provide an overview of the activities and programs your camp offers during summer camp, and how they contribute to children’s development?

To understand and appreciate the spectacular wild and natural beauty of British Columbia the group will spend two nights camped outside under the stars at a backcountry trail campsite. There will also be a high alpine day hike (accessed by gondola car) where participants will travel in a high mountain environment where there are year-round snow fields and glaciers! Participants will learn about the history and culture of local First Nations and will also get the opportunity to explore the city of Vancouver along with the Olympic town of Whistler. This exciting program is perfectly designed for teens and will leave each participant with incredible memories! It is a once in a lifetime experience and we hope you will join us for your unforgettable Canadian Dream Summer!
