Wilderness camp has space for six more youth

  • Jul. 12, 2004 8:00 a.m.

Looking for something to do this August?
Masset’s Jonathon Ebbs has organized a four-week youth eco-tourism training course that will take place Aug. 4-31.
The program, based at the Mount Moresby Adventure Camp, is to be organized and facilitated by an all-islands team of staff. It will include a two-week kayaking trip in Gwaii Haanas, an ascent of Mount Moresby, canoeing, trail building, as well as workshops on wilderness first aid and skills, and introductory environmental studies classes.
So far, Mr. Ebbs says he has six island youth signed up for the month-long wilderness adventure, and the maximum capacity is 12. He said that there is also a shorter course in the works for people who aren’t able to commit to a whole month.
The program is for 16 – 24 year olds, said Mr. Ebbs, but “there’s some flexibility there.”
“We just completed a great staff training session,” he said. “Now we’re just wrapping up a few logistical things, collecting all the equipment and food.”
The cost for the whole program is $500. For more info, talk to Jonathon Ebbs at 626-3494.
