Outdoor Adventure Program

Our Outdoor Adventure program is offered to youth in Grades 6 to 8 at our BGC Metchosin Club. Youth will learn valuable outdoor skills that will deepen their connection with nature, increase their comfort in “wild” settings and test their physical and mental abilities. Some of the equipment we use may be new to participants, so we strive to create an open and accepting environment that fosters learning, not competition. We as a group will form a community that will grow our skills together. Therefore many of the activities revolve around the principles of self-care, leadership and teamwork.
