Only outside the comfort zone can there be growth. Our Wild Growth program has been developed to cultivate and strengthen leadership, communication, mindfulness, and physical literacy skills in a natural setting. These modules have been created to promote personal development and team connections in a fun and relaxed environment. While immersed in the beautiful forests of British Columbia, participants can gain greater understanding of themselves, their teammates, and the natural world.

Module Examples:

We offer groups a choice of 8 different modules within the Wild Growth program. They range from competitive survival challenges, to physical literacy workshops, to interpersonal communication development. To view our current modules, drop us a note and we'll reply with the full range of curriculum.

Here are 3 examples (of the 8) to choose from:

Timber Cruiser Circuit – Discover a space to move and breath in the forest while developing interpersonal skills. The Timber Cruiser Circuit is a series of structures located in the scenic coastal temperate rainforests of the Malcolm Knapp Research Forest. The Timber Cruiser Circuit provides participants with a unique setting in which participants can grow and strengthen their group bond; while gaining a greater sense of physical literacy.

Survival Competition – Find out who is a wilderness survivor! With a positive and competitive twist, participants will learn basic survival skills and work to build effective shelters, start fires, and collect fresh water.

Wildfire Escape Room – Only you can prevent the wildfire! Decipher the clues to stop the fire from spreading and save the forest in a one of a kind escape room experience. Determine the fire cause and gain a better understanding of forest fires regimes in British Columbia. What’s more fun than working together to solve riddles and puzzles before time runs out.
