At a Glance

Take your family on an active adventure in the mossy forests of Vancouver Island. Together you’ll learn new skills as you play kayak soccer, navigate with a compass and head out on an overnight canoe trip. Climb a rock bluff, rappel from a cliff, swing like Tarzan on a zip line and learn about teamwork on a log and cable ropes course suspended high above the ground. Swim on the sandy beach, tell campfire stories and learn all about the plants and animals of Vancouver Island on a nature walk with an expert. This fresh air adventure will bring you closer together — and closer to nature!
