Getting Back to Nature!

We’re excited to get back into nature and offer a number of courses for individual registration this summer, starting in August. We’ve been testing out our new COVID-19 health protocols to ensure we can provide challenging and safe experiences for our participants.

Other than our new Hike and Canoe Toronto day camp for youth aged 12-15, the courses below are currently limited to participants 18+ due to provincial guidelines restricting overnight programs. With an emphasis on building confidence, resilience and interpersonal skills, these courses are a great opportunity for youth looking for an exciting outdoor adventure before resuming their studies/work, or for those choosing to take a gap year. Please note that at this time, you can only register for a course in your province of residence.

Thanks to our generous donors and partners, there is some funding allocated to each course from the Youth Access Fund to support those eligible for financial assistance.
