    Description: WEA's Youth Hiking Summer Camp is run as a partnership between WEA and Western Educational Adventure Society (WEAS). The trip is highlighted by a multi-day hike through a coastal temperate rainforest on the Juan de Fuca Marine Trail (JDF Trail) on Southwestern Vancouver Island, a mere hour west of Victoria, B.C. Our trip typically starts near the surfing village of Jordan River and ends in the salmon fishing hotspot of Port Renfrew BC. Hiking program youth experience the magnificent Juan De Fuca Trail (the southern extension of the West Coast Trail) and all that it has to offer including suspension bridges, West Coast beaches and tidal pools teaming with West Coast marine life. Kids learn how to conduct a coastal hiking expedition, become a strong leader, work as a part of a team and much more! This is a once in a lifetime experience on a rugged, wild, West Coast coastline!

    Description: WEA's teen Forest Canoe Route Summer Camp is run as a partnership between WEA and Western Educational Adventure Society (WEAS). When people think about the West Coast, Vancouver Island, Campbell River, etc., they don't think about canoeing on a pristine freshwater lake chain! However, Vancouver Island's own Sayward Forest Canoe Circuit is a breath-taking, lesser-known wilderness adventure your teen will not want to miss! Youth travel accross lakes large and small and are challenged by portages (traveling from lake to lake), small, low-risk rivers and beaver. Like with most of WEA's programs, teens learn trip specific skills like canoe rescues, how to paddle, portaging, how to camp and cook as well as soft skills like leadership, conflict resolution and other life skills. Sign-up for our Teen Summer Canoeing Camp today!
