Join us in one of BC’s most unique and popular Provincial Parks. A short drive from Vancouver will put you into the BC portion of the Cascade Mountains.

From there, you’ll leave the world behind and begin your journey into BC’s backcountry.  After hiking through fields of wildflowers and steep switchbacks, your hard work and effort will be rewarded with spectacular mountain views and alpine sunrises that will take your breath away.   You’re sure to make friendships and memories that you won’t soon forget.

The Connecting with Courage program is designed specifically for youth between the ages of 14 and 16 to support them in developing their confidence and helping them find their “voice” at a critical stage of their development when they become overwhelmed with a host of cultural, social, physical, and psychological pressures.

This course is fully funded through the Maddie Project.

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.
