Length: 3-8 days

Location: Algonquin Park (or other location on request)

Program Description

On this program, students get the chance to be involved in the trip planning process as well as in the trip itself. Dependent upon the level your students are working towards, participants will get the opportunity to partake in a practice journey in Algonquin Park where outdoor training workshops such as: map and compass, food management on trip, first aid basic training, equipment repairs as well as weather mapping skills will be ongoing. Our facilitator guides are experts at making these workshops fun and hands-on so that your students can benefit from experiencing and learning their outdoor skills in a safe context.

After their practice journey, each group of students will undertake a 3 to 8 day trip (dependent on your choice) through Algonquin Park where each individual will have the opportunity to participate in daily chores on the campsite, being a leader of the day and of course live an incredible group bonding experience! Each night, a debrief will end our days allowing for every student the opportunity to share their learning’s of the day with their group!


Trip Highlights

This trip is definitely a student-involved program where faculty members can plan with us the learning they wish to see their students to develop. Above the experience of a canoe trip, this program offers an opportunity to your students to live and learn what it takes to meet the criteria required for the Bronze, Silver or Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award
