Getting Back to Nature with Wilderness School

Covid-19 has impacted so many aspects of life here in B.C. This is no different when it comes to programs at Power To Be.  The Wilderness School specifically has been at the frontlines of this transition due to the unique, ongoing relationship we have with the teens in our program. This relationship has enabled the Wilderness School to be the first to pilot multiple program models to remain flexible to the changing needs and regulations.

Making Memories During Open Adventure

Power To Be's programs offer new opportunities to get outside and explore. We are so grateful for the places we visit, the people who are a part of our programs, and the experiences that we share in nature, together. Today, we at Power To Be are exploring Stanley Park with new Open Adventure participants. For some, it will be their first Power To Be program and for others, it will be their reconnection with Power To Be after multiple years.

Snowshoeing in Strathcona: A Wilderness School Adventure

Waist-deep snow, mountain ranges, and spectacular moonlit views; this is the adventure that Power To Be’s Year 3 Wilderness School Cohort embarked on this month. On a clear February day, 7 youth, 3 staff members and a Power To Be volunteer headed out into the snow for a two-day, one-night snowshoeing adventure at Strathcona Provincial Park. The journey’s destination? Lake Helen Mackenzie, an 8-kilometre trail loop and a popular camping spot during both summer and winter.

Conquering Camping: A Participant’s Story

"For a very long time, I have wanted to go camping alone in a tent in the forest. However, for me, camping poses many big challenges; so it has always simply been a dream. However, when I was offered the opportunity to camp at Prospect Lake, I knew that I was ready, and I knew the time was now."
