The Outdoor Escape program offers a basic introduction to the world of outdoor activities and group development for students graduating Grade 6 (going into Grade 7). The program is five days long and all activities will be conducted out at the Gould Lake Outdoor Centre.

Students will get an introductory look at skills necessary to be responsible and safe campers within a group setting. Students will be learning things such as navigation, canoeing, portaging, how to set up a tent and some basic outdoor cooking techniques. This prepares them to do a day trip on day 4 at a campsite on Gould Lake allowing them the opportunity to utilize all the skills they learned during the week.

The Outdoor Escape experience is a great start into the world of outdoor recreation and towards our Quest/GAP and/or Outreach programs for graduates of Grades 7, 8 or 9. 2024 cost is $325.00.
