This course is being offered by the Alpine Club of Canada in partnership with the City of Revelstoke. It offers kids a great introduction to the outdoors and how to be a Natural Leader. Each week, kids will learn about Revelstoke’s natural environment and practical wilderness skills including knot trying, hiking, climbing, and campfire preparation.
Each indoor training session will be followed by an outdoor adventure day on the weekend to implement these new skills and get the chance to explore the beautiful Revelstoke environment accompanied by qualified leaders and guides.
PLEASE NOTE, a parent or a guardian will need to attend outdoor sessions on Saturdays.
