Dear Valued Community of Power To Be,

Power To Be understands that we all need to work together to continue to limit transmission of COVID 19, protect those living with health considerations, and prevent community transmission.

In compliance with British Columbia’s Health Authority guidelines, Power To Be has developed a phased approach to in-person nature-based programs. As time unfolds, we will remain nimble and align our offerings with shifting public health orders.  With safety at the forefront, we are looking forward to adventuring with our community both in-person and virtually in 2021.  Here is an update on what you can expect in our two regions.

What to Expect in Vancouver

Open Adventure

We have currently suspended our intake for Open Adventure Participants due to Covid-19. We will be reassessing capacity for new participant intakes every season in 2021 and will reach out to participants on the waitlist as there is availability. If you are interested in being put on a waitlist of participants to be contacted, or if you have any questions, please reach out to vancouverprograms@powertobe.ca

Community Groups

We currently have a waitlist for Community Group involvement. We will be reassessing capacity for new intakes of Community Groups every season through 2021 but do not anticipate any movement for the next year. If you are a Community Group that would like to be added to the waitlist, or if you have any questions, please reach out to vancouvercommunityprograms@powertobe.ca

What to Expect in Victoria

Open Adventure

We are currently putting a hold on intake until the fall of 2021. We are using this time to reimagine our programs to meet the changing needs of our community moving forward. If you would like to attend a virtual information session or have any questions, please reach out to victoriaprograms@powertobe.ca.

Community Groups

We currently have a waitlist for Community Group involvement. We will be reassessing capacity for new intakes of Community Groups in midway through 2021. If you are a Community Group that would like to be added to the waitlist or if you have any questions, please reach out to communityprogramsvictoria@powertobe.ca.

Wilderness School

We are currently pausing on new intakes in our Wilderness School Programs. We have had to shift our program offering for 2021 based on internal considerations and the public health orders restricting overnight camps. If you have any questions, please reach out to wsprograms@powertobe.ca.

Family Roots

We will be offering intake for our 2021 Family Roots program in March 2021. If you have any questions about the program or eligibility, please reach out to Sylvia Storry at sstorry@powertobe.ca.

We look forward to connecting as we redesign our program offerings. Whether by virtual means or in person, our community thrives because of all of you and we are so thankful to be looking into a future that connects us back to the core of who we are.

Sincerely,

The Power To Be Program Team
