Camp Breakdown:

Day 1 – Exploration:

What better way to start camp than a hike to Lake Helen Mackenzie? After check-in, you will spend some time getting to know your leaders and fellow adventurers before taking a quick van ride to the Strathcona Park trailhead. The group will then embark on a hike out to the lake where they will have lunch and play games along the way. Upon returning to the Alpine Lodge, the group will have some fun on the mini golf course and even get in a round of disc golf!

Day 2 – Outdoor Ed:

Get up and close with the local flora and fauna by getting to know all about the little creatures who we share the mountain with. The group will spend the day at the Vancouver Island Marmot Recovery centre where local researchers will teach us all about the species and what they are doing to save the Marmots from extinction. Later in the day, the group will participate in various games with the camp leaders that promote conservation and connection with their natural surroundings.

Day 3 – All Things Alpine:

We kick things off with a bang on day two, starting with a Basic Bike Maintenance Clinic which is led by one of our resident bike experts. Adventurers will learn about checking their safety gear before a ride, different bike components, tools used and basic trail-side fixes. After a quick lunch, the group will head out on a cross-country ride on our Finger Trail, following by a scenic chairlift ride and games back at the Alpine Lodge.

Day 4 – Bike Park:

Hip hip hooray, it’s Bike Park day! Adventurers will begin the day learning from one of our Trail Crew Pros on how to properly build and maintain mountain bike trails. Proper drainage, various tools used, raking, and shoveling techniques will all be covered. After learning how to build the trails, the group will try them out starting with an intro session in our Skills Park. Once everyone is comfortable with basic biking knowledge, they will head out to the Bike Park for the rest of the day, building on skills such as body position, braking, climbing, and cornering.
