Mount Moresby Adventure Camp

Submitted Article–Spending just one day at Mount Moresby Adventure Camp during the Forest Stewardship Outdoor Education Program is enough to remind you that our youth are capable of incredible acts of wisdom, courage, teamwork, and respect, as well as inspired sparks of mischief, genius, and playfulness! It seems that our students get smarter, funnier, and stronger every year, and it’s a joy to bear witness to their growth as we learn together what it means to be stewards of our home, Haida Gwaii. Another spring season ends after four weeks of exploring insects and bryophytes, identifying and understanding native and endemic flora and fauna, learning the impacts of introduced species, understanding the effects of the Land Use Order on the ground, building fires and shelters, paddling and hiking, orienteering and trail building, building a cook pit and eating the food cooked by the hot rocks, weaving rope out of cedar, fishing for trout, swimming in the lake, and learning about each other and the strengths that lie within each of us. Please see our Letter of Appreciation in the classifieds to all those who made this ninth season such a success, and the biggest thanks goes to the students who make everything worthwhile.
