This program is one of a kind, located in a stunning location, far from where most Elderhostelers have visited. While some participants have camped before, neither my grandson nor I had. We learned so much about ourselves as well as the wild outdoors. the food at Strathcona Lodge is outstanding and the scenery breathtaking. We "city folks" had to rough it a bit, which was part of this learning experience. We had a very cohesive group and a perfect schedule of activities. Our leader, Jamie was both instructive and funny, but kept our safety of primary importance. Combined the right degree of sterness when required with lots of fun thrown in. You come away with a new healthy appreciation of our environment and the need to preserve such pristine places, while passing through it with zero impact. Lots of good life lessons for grandchildren. would recommend a few additional items to the packing list. Headlight for camping strongly advised, backpack big enough for an overnight and not simply a "daypack". In addition to small ziplock baggies, a waterproof bag big enough to line your backpack. otherwise, I urge all to go for it!!

Just completed the inter-generational program at Stathcona Lodge in BC. The program was outstanding... pushed me way past my comfort zone... but would do it all again in a heart beat. Our team lead Savannah was the best... I don't know if I and the kids would of had such a good time with out her. All I can say is THANK YOU SAVANNAH!!

MY HUSBAND AND I ACCOMPANIED OUR 10 AND 11 YEAR OLD GRANDCHILDREN ON THE STRATHCONA LODGE INTERGENERATIONAL ADVENTURE. IT EXCEEDED ALL OF OUR EXPECTATIONS AND CHALLENGED US EACH DAY TO PUSH OURSELVES MENTALLY AND PHYSICALLY. THE CHILDREN NEVER STOPPED THANKING US FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO EXPERIENCE NEW PEOPLE, NEW SURROUNDINGS AND NEW CHALLENGES. IT WAS AN EXPERIENCE OF A LIFETIME FOR ALL OF US AND WE ARE A VERY ADVENTUROUS FAMILY THAT HAVE BEEN FORTUNATE TO HAVE MANY ADVENTURES.

This is an excellent program for both grandparents and grandkids. Our granddaughter loved all the action that was packed into this program. I would highly recommend this program to the families looking for an active outdoor program in a beautiful area of the country. We loved it!

My grandson and I had such a wonderful adventure. We both thought the program was outstanding. It couldn't have been better. I can't wait to find a new trip I can take with his brother.
