Are you ready to grab a backpack and hit the trails?

This 2-week expedition is perfect for those looking for a challenging adventure in the mountains. You will improve your leadership and teamwork skills surrounded by soaring mountain peaks and alpine lakes. In the evenings, your instructors will lead discussions on how to take what you’ve learned in the backcountry and apply it to your everyday life.

AREA & ACTIVITIES

This journey will take you through Treaty 7 land, the traditional territories of Niitsitapi (the Siksika, Piikani, Kainai), the Îyârhe Nakoda, and Tsuut’ina Nations, as well as the traditional unceded territory of the Ktunaxa Nation and Métis Region 3.

You will begin with an introduction to backcountry living and getting to know your team members. Experienced instructors will teach you everything you need to know for your adventure, including how to pack an expedition backpack, stove use, shelter building, personal hygiene, minimal impact camping, and how to travel over various terrain both on and off-trail. By the end of the course, you will make decisions with minimal input from instructors.



Character Development: This program helps build the following traits

  • Resilience: Participants will step out of the comfort of daily routines and into an adventurous and exciting, yet foreign and uncertain environment. Using the course's challenges, instructors will teach participants how to transfer the skills they learned to their everyday lives.
  • 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.
