Vimy Outdoor Pursuits
Outdoor Pursuits is a program based on physical fitness and adventure sport. Academics and athletics are balanced in an alternative program that provides students with the opportunity to participate in outdoor sports as well as traditional indoor activities. An emphasis is placed on physical fitness, leadership and team work as students develop outdoor skills and travel on backcountry camping excursions. Students in the Outdoor Pursuits program will need to have proper outdoor clothing and footwear for being outside in the winter and summer months. Students will also need to have access to a mountain bike and essential camping equipment.
Program fee: Additional fees are charged for this program.
