Power To Be partnered with the Steele family in March 2016 on a long-term lease of the former Prospect Lake Golf Course. With lake access, open natural spaces and forested trails to explore, the site is an inclusive hub for programs, helping us expand our program offerings.

The move allowed us to consolidate gear and programs in one location. Programs hosted onsite include kayaking, hiking, canoeing, and other activities for youth and families living with a physical, mental, social or financial barrier. The site also acts as a staging area for programs that bring participants to natural spaces throughout Vancouver Island and the Vancouver area.
