Go Explore: The Beach at Low Tide

Pick a beach, any beach, and see what there is to discover during low tide. There is always something to find wonderful. For me, the negative tides Victoria experiences in our spring and summer months is an event I look forward to every year.

Participant Spotlight: Chris

If you’ve been on a Power To Be program in Vancouver over the past three years, there’s a good chance you have had the pleasure of hanging out with this month’s participant spotlight, Chris. Chris got his start with Power To Be as he was looking for something to get him moving and into the outdoors.

The Ten Essentials

When you are headed outdoors for an adventure, it is essential that you bring along things that you need to keep you safe in the outdoors. These things are typically known in the Outdoor Industry as “The Ten Essentials”. There are a whole variety of different versions of “The Ten Essentials”, but they can all be broken down to the ten essential categories of items to pack. Check out our list and use it a guide to help you pack everything you need for your next adventure.

Program Outcome: Inclusion Understanding

The Inclusion Understanding outcome of our Theory of Change has many layers to it as it aims to promote acceptance, understanding, and appreciation for diversity, culture, and abilities of our community. This is both for the individual’s sense of self and of those around them.
