Explorer, traveler and trailblazer? Outdoor adventure and experiential learning at 5 unique destinations in 1 incredible action packed week!


Get behind the scenes in the Vancouver Aquarium’s Wetlab! Investigate a live variety of invertebrate marine life first-hand and learn all about them from the Aquarium’s knowledgeable educators. See close up (and maybe even touch!) sea anemones, sea urchins, jellies, sea stars, sea cucumbers, shrimp, octopus and more!

We take our longest adventure of camp out to Britannia Mine museum where campers will take the underground train to discover the inner workings of a gold mine. We lunch in beautiful Porteau cove then head back to the museum after lunch for a special educational program followed by gold panning where you keep what you pan!

We check out a Vancouver Urban Farm at Southlands. Campers have the opportunity to make fresh baked bread, interact with horses and other animals, check out real live beekeeping and explore the inner workings of a farm.

Discover what made the 2010 Vancouver olympics magical with the Richmond Olympic Experience. Students experience sport simulators on the bobsleigh, kayak, ski jump and sitski as well as interactive exhibits such as their reaction timers, vertical jump and olympic history touch tables. Olympic Experience educators talk about the significance of past olympic games, evolution of sporting equipment and more!Following the Olympic Experience campers will play various court sports and team building games.

The HR MacMillan Space Centre serves to “educate, inspire and evoke a sense of wonder about the universe, our planet, and space exploration.” Campers explore Cosmic courtyard, lie back and experience the universe in the Star Planetarium and learn the fun way with rockets, explosions and experiments!
