In Depth Experiential Education and Personalized Learning

The core of Ocean Wise Learning Journeys is providing high-quality, hands-on learning opportunities for youth. Our team does this by setting out on a journey, where participants experience a mixture of outdoor education in beautiful, natural settings, supplemented by discussions with experts and educators on the ocean literacy principles, and building their leadership skills through activities, projects, and public speaking.

In this particular excursion, participants from the Ocean Heroes Bootcamp will journey to the beautiful Hornby Island to experience the almost tropical beach and beautiful landscapes of the Tribune Bay and Helliwell Provincial Parks. Students and their chaperones will spend 3-nights at the Tribune Bay Outdoor Education Centre and will rotate through a variety of outdoor education activities, including leadership and team building, high ropes courses, water-front activities (kayaking and/or paddle-boarding), guided hikes along Helliwell Provincial Park, etc.
