This intensive 28-day Training provides a solid foundation of outdoor and leadership skills and competencies. Hard skills — certifications in advanced wilderness first aid, lifesaving and sea kayaking — are taught in accordance with current professional standards. Learning about the natural world of Hesquiat Harbour, and indigenous values and culture is included in all activities. Using adventure-based, experiential learning, participants will gain the skills and knowledge necessary for safe and practical outdoor group leadership.
Participants have the opportunity to hone their skills in wilderness camping, surfing, canoeing, sea kayaking, hiking and backpacking while gaining an intimate knowledge of the Pacific coastal environment. Participants will leave the program with increased comfort and confidence levels in their outdoor abilities.
