We are very excited to announce that we will once again offer our students the opportunity for Grade 8 to 11 students to take part in a three-day, two-night wilderness voyage on August 26-28, 2019.

This program includes instruction in wilderness travel skills, whitewater safety, and paddling. The Boreal leadership programs use the wilderness and the challenges of an expedition as mediums for self-discovery, personal growth, and group bonding.
The cost of the trip is $550 and includes:
• three-day, two-night guided river expedition
• Coach bus transportation
• Whitewater rafting on the Upper Gatineau River
• Wilderness camping throughout the trip
• Professional, highly-qualified, experienced instructor team leading all activities

1. Payment of the trip costs ($550 online payment);
