Outdoor Adventures provides a fun and welcoming environment that allows students to learn how to navigate the city, explore areas throughout Vancouver, engage with nature and build connections with their peers. Students can expect to participate in a wide range of activities which will include anything from learning about different types of plants and birds at the Bloedel Conservatory to exploring the contemporary art exhibitions throughout Vancouver. Students can also expect to learn about and engage with the history of colonial settlement on the lands of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and Sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. Diverse forms of transit will be utilized to transport students all over the city, giving students the skills necessary to navigate the city independently. Outdoor Adventures provides students with new experiences in which they learn to engage with the city and their peers.
