Connecting youth with nature, adventure & Canadian Heritage
Since 2018, we have been offering dynamic outdoor adventure experiences for Manitoban youth! We facilitate engaging outdoor programs that inspire students to explore the natural world, work together, and come away with a fresh confidence in themselves.
For 2021, we are offering an innovative approach to maintain physical distancing and ensure student safety during the Covid-19 Pandemic. We follow Manitoba Health Guidelines and adhere to advice from local medical professionals. To that end, we offer WORRY FREE event cancellation & rebooking due to Covid-19 related circumstances!
Our mobile outdoor education program that is tailored for groups of 10 to 15 students and their group leaders. For larger groups like schools, we break down into smaller outdoor learning cohorts to ensure safe physical distancing and higher staff to student ratios. We take care of everything from program planning, permits, equipment, delicious meals (when applicable), and certified outdoor program leaders.
We partner with Wilderland Adventure Company, a local outfitter, to facilitate the Youth Outdoors Project. Wilderland's oversight and leadership help us uphold a professional standard throughout these impactful programs.
Together, we offer the following programs:
Back to Nature - Outdoor Activity Day Programs (outdoor survival, canoeing, hiking, snowshoeing, etc).
