Adventure School visits Fraser Valley
For more than 40 years Educo Adventure School has operated "off the grid" in the heart of British Columbia's Cariboo country, offering courses from early July to late August for youth aged nine to 19.
Educo, which means "to draw out/lead forth", is the only summer camp in B.C. that gives young people an "off-grid" experience, wilderness mountaineering, rock climbing, canoeing, navigating high ropes and the challenge of self-discovery.
On Saturday afternoon, Educo staff and volunteers opened the window on this unique summer camp for families in the Fraser Valley with team-building exercises, interactive games, true stories of wilderness experiences, all focused at connecting with nature.
The free, two-hour open house ran on Saturday at the Edenvale Conference Centre on Bradner Road.
Educo Adventure School is located on a remote, 160-acre self-sustaining site situated 20 kilometres west of 100 Mile House in B.C.'s beautiful Cariboo Country.
