We will provide our students with activity-specific training and certification. Local instructors and experts will offer courses and workshops on skills such as canoeing, sea kayaking, rock climbing, wilderness first aid, skiing/snowboarding, winter survival, and more. This will be a component of some of our grade trips such as Grade 8 where students will earn the Paddle Canada Basic Canoe certification before they participate in a 2-day adventure.
The Explore Series includes a variety of 1- and 2-day wilderness trips or activities that provide an introduction to adventure skills and offer students a chance to get outside and enjoy the natural areas in our region. Students will enjoy opportunities such as camping overnight in Fundy National Park, canoeing on the Kennebecasis River or rock climbing at a local cliff. This series will include our Grade 6-9 trips that allow students the opportunity to enjoy a variety of outdoor adventure experiences.
This series will allow students to spend more time (3 to 5 days) in the wilderness learning advanced adventure skills to keep them safe and comfortable in the outdoors. These trips provide the necessary requirements of the Duke of Edinburgh Adventurous Journey for Silver and Gold.
