We use various locations about the province and hike our gear and youth in by water or land.
Four days in Base Camp
to train our youth for their
solo camping journey
Day 1 is for First Aid
Day 2 is for Predator Awareness
Day 3 is for Food/Shelter/Water
Day 4 is for Leave No Trace skills
Day 5 the youth are ready to hike into their solo sites one kilometer apart and set up their tents. During their four days alone they have a daily task schedule to follow and on their last day the youth write a 'Letter of Appreciation' to their Sponsor!
This is how we do it!
Day 10 is for their graduation ceremony and everyone bucks out the Base Camp - five wayward youth go in.....five young men come out!
We invite you to Sponsor a youth today!
