We run a variety of winter based activities and all transportation, lift tickets, equipment, rentals and lessons are included and absolutely free to participants.
OUTDOORS, GROWING, BONDING

This program runs in the summer. As a group you will collaboratively grow a vegetable garden and explore nature trails, farms, and lakes around the Ottawa/Gatineau regions. This program pairs spending time in nature with a conversational element. If you’re a person who wants to get outside, learn how to grow a garden, or likes to chill- this program is for you.
DISCOVER, RECHARGE, BREATHE
(see virtual Self-Care Program above)
The power of yoga and meditation is a healthy coping method. This program encourages you to discover yourself, and allows you to recharge through mindfulness and discussion with peers. Most of all, it teaches you the key aspect of mental health maintenance which is self care – to take a while just to breathe. This program is for youth 15 and older.
