Quote from our Founding Director:
Solo camping requires extreme self awareness and positive body management..........we use the solo wilderness experience to teach the youth how to discover these valuable skills within themselves so as to be successful in their personal life plans.
Activities for the Ten Day Challenge:
Staging out of various public access wilderness areas around the province the group backpacks deep into an unserviced area and establish's a ‘Base’ camp. This base camp supports four days of wilderness training designed to prepare the youth for their personal four day solo camping experiance. For the solo individual sites are established and each youth is given an area with sufficient boundaries to provide isolation. While the solo exercise is being conducted staff provides risk management support and respond to any request for help. This is not a 'survival' style of solo camping as the youth are fully outfitted with a set curriculum to follow. On their last day the youth are brought back into Base camp for a graduation ceremony and home the next day.
