"Landon took our family on a sea kayak paddle starting out of Victoria. This was our first time sea kayaking but we felt confident in Landon keeping our trip safe and enjoyable. In little time we were safely paddling and navigating the water. It was a great day!"

Program Descriptions


Day Hike & Geocaching

This program is designed to compliment the "Outdoor Navigation Basics" program while also being a fun stand-alone programs. We will be hiking at a beautiful, local mountain with amazing views and wilderness. Your child will learn some basic group management skills as well as how to use a gps and geocache.

What is geocaching? Geocaching is a GPS treasure hunt for little boxes bottles or other containers with mystery contents hidden in wilderness areas throughought the world.


Survival Skills

Your child will learn how to build fires and shelters using only materials found in the forest. The shelters will be tested to determine how waterproof they are so bring a change of clothes!
