  • Interpersonal skills: Participants will create a strong sense of community with their peers as they travel through the wilderness, learning how to work together to accomplish daily tasks and make decisions.

Go on the ultimate West Coast adventure this summer!

Explore Clayoquot Sound by kayak and surfboard as you travel through ocean waves and tiny inlets. At night, after a day full of adventure, pitch your tents on sandy beaches or on the edge of ancient rainforests to enjoy the breathtaking West Coast sunsets.

This strenuous 21-day course will make your group work together to creatively problem-solve while honing your existing leadership and communication skills. You will be challenged physically and mentally throughout the expedition, and the sense of accomplishment at the end of the three weeks will stay with you for the rest of your life.

If you choose to apply the expedition towards a high school credit, your course work will be done through activities, group discussions and analysis, and daily journal reflections.
