The first Advanced Outdoor Education Group at York House has started its 2012 program.
The girls will be engaging in a 5-day sea kayak trip on the west coast of Vancouver Island, then a 2-day surf clinic to wrap things up. Not only is this an incredible outdoor education experience, it also meets the standard for the Duke of Edinburgh Gold Standing. The program includes a team building rock climbing session, two sessions getting oriented to kayaking and many team meetings throughout the year.
In these shots below the girls are completing their first sea kayak training session in December. It was a chilly day to dump the boats but the views were stunning. More exciting photos to come!
