    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!
