Description


This programme offers a great chance for students to learn invaluable life skills that are often forgotten about by education curricula. From touchdown in Canada, this programme offer adventure right through until the very end. Students will not only learn about the local environment, the wilderness and bushcraft, they will also learn to switch off from the digital world, turn up their sensory awareness and their listening skills with most evenings entertainment being around a campfire with friends.  For conservation related subjects, this programme can be combined with a wolf sanctuary module, a Yellowstone add-on or an orca & marine mammals Vancouver add-on.
