Find Your Element
Find YOUR Element
The four essential elements exist in all of us and their unique combinations determine our distinct personalities. These elements represent energy and symbolize different facets of human life. They all come from nature. Consequently, by connecting with them and understanding their presence in us, we become aware of our connection and relationship with nature.
Element Outdoor Education adventure activities are developed around the four essential elements. These adventures will be outcome based allowing participants to observe their personal progress while taking part in a variety of activities designed to explore each elements qualities and determine their true self. These activities will explore different facets of the outdoors through unique experiences that will connect participants with nature and discover the beauty of their community and the province we call home.
Adventures are divided into morning and afternoon sessions for different age groups with a low instructor to participant ratio. Participants may choose to do one or all of the weekly adventures.
