The Purpose(s) Of The Society Is/Are:
To provide affordable programs for mainstream and at-risk youth in the Okanagan to participate in outdoor recreation, education and leadership activities. These activities will provide the platform (or opportunity) to help youth develop and nurture their physical, emotional and intellectual selves by enhancing their relationship and confidence in the surrounding natural environment.
To provide accessible pro-social and therapeutic recreational programming to reduce the isolation of high-risk and marginalized youth and promote community integration, relationship building, and life-skills development.
To provide therapeutic and recreational expertise that acknowledges the mind-body connection for optimal health and reinforces the value of active engagement in natural contexts for improved physical, mental, and emotional wellness.
