UBC Camps and the UBC Faculty of Education have created a camp that gives youth aged 12-15 a unique educational outdoor learning experience that offers campers social, emotional, cognitive, and physical engagement in outdoor settings that no traditional classroom ever could. Camp takes place, and part, in creating an environment where hands-on learning allows participants to absorb knowledge through situated lesson and apply it to everyday life. Experiential learning includes: a service learning project, building self confidence, developing leadership skills, engaging with nature, forming new friendships, and participating in general camp governance. There are also many exciting and engaging activities such as: canoeing, hiking, ropes challenge course, tie-dye, cultural programs, and a mini overnight tenting trip (a few campers each night will tent on the property). In addition to programmed daily activities, participants will have a chance to develop valuable leadership skills through a group project that is worked on throughout the week.
