YMCA Camp Elphinstone offers the best of the great outdoors

W

ith fresh air, open skies and a diverse ecosystem, the Pacific Northwest is an ideal environment for exploration and discovery. That’s why the YMCA transforms their summer overnight camp, YMCA Camp Elphinstone, to an outdoor learning haven for children and youth during the school year. Located on the beautiful Sunshine Coast of B.C., two kilometres north of the Langdale ferry terminal and just a 40-minute ferry ride from Horseshoe Bay in West Vancouver, YMCA Camp Elphinstone boasts more than 140 acres of oceanfront property, lush rainforest and quiet creeks. It’s no wonder they’ve been providing unique outdoor experiences to kids since 1907. Their outdoor education programs are designed to get kids active and learning outside. Through meaningful, experiential learning, YMCA staff facilitate a wide variety of hands-on activities and students are challenged outside the traditional classroom. Programming is carefully planned to provide quality learning opportunities and is designed to meet provincial prescribed learning outcomes. Y staff work with educators to ensure that programming is developmentally appropriate and schedules are planned to achieve group goals. Some examples of the most popular types of programming, favoured by educators, include: marine beach study, discovery hike or voyageur canoeing. And of course, kids can’t get enough of their climbing wall, archery ranges, and camp fires!

Y staff are also able to play a hands-off role should educators wish to take the lead in facilitating learning experiences (certain activities require Y staff due to safety). The Y boasts an impressive staff team, with highly trained leaders, with expertise in areas such as wildlife safety and healthy child development. YMCA Camp Elphinstone is able to accommodate up to 450 participants and offers two types of accommodation – lodges and cabins – all of which offer electricity and heat. Lodges feature private washrooms, cozy lounges, mini kitchenettes and lockers to secure belongings. Cabins have washrooms and showers nearby in a separate building. The Y makes sure kids are full with healthy and nutritious meals during their stay, serving appetizing, kid-friendly meals served family or buffet style. Participants can expect meals such as pancakes or scrambled eggs and hash browns for breakfast, macaroni and cheese or tacos for lunch, and chicken and potatoes or stir-fry for dinner. Meals also include endless salad bars at lunch and dinner or cereal and fruit bars at breakfast. They are able to accommodate most dietary needs, including vegetarian, vegan, lactose or gluten intolerant, diabetic and celiac at no additional cost. Single meals are available for day-use only groups. Prices range depending on the type of accommodation and time of year – low season rates are offered November through April. Since the YMCA is a charity, they also offer financial assistance made possible through fundraising efforts in the community, to ensure that all kids get a chance to experience learning in the great outdoors. They also have a slew of recommendations on ways for groups to fundraise their trip. Spaces book quickly, so inquire early to secure dates and get a customized quote. To learn more, contact 604-886-2025, elphinstone@gv.ymca.ca or visit their website (gv.ymca.ca/elphinstone).

These dreams will come true at SkyTrek Adventure Park. Our Sky Course offers five levels of difficulty: easy green, moderate blue, challenging black, daring double black and the “experts only” triple black. You must be able to reach up to 5’6” to participate. Throughout the course, students and teachers will be encouraged to use their problem solving skills and build self-confidence by overcoming obstacles and flying across ziplines. The awesome Adventure Tower offers an array of thrilling activities including our 50 foot giant swing that sends you soaring through the trees, a 40 foot simulated free fall to test the toughest of nerves and two interactive climbing walls that offer five different routes in a range of difficulties. We also offer the Kids Sky Adventure, a mini version of our Sky Course to challenge littler kids starting at the age of 5. For children as young as two we have a fun and fully netted Sky Gym that features a small introductory zipline. The Sky Gym is an excellent option for students who choose not to go up on the big Sky Courses.

VISIT UBC BEATY BIODIVERSITY MUSEUM

Take a tour through 4.5 billion years of Earth’s history, discover the topography of the moon and Mars using our interactive OmniGlobe, touch a real dinosaur bone, be informed about the hazards of natural disasters, gaze at dazzling mineral and gem displays, and learn about the mineralogical guts of your smartphone—all in one visit to the PME. Our outreach programs cover several topics within Process of Science, Life Science, Physical Science, and Earth and Space Science as outlined under the BC curriculum prescribed learning outcomes. Groups can book an hour-long hands-on workshop during which students will learn how to identify minerals and rocks, how fossils are preserved, or how and why volcanoes erupt explosively. In addition to a workshop, your group can book a guided tour of the museum’s exhibits and an exclusive 30-minute show-and-tell of our famous OmniGlobe. Our programs can accommodate groups of 1–20 students and are extremely affordable—$80 for a group of 20 students—that’s $4 per student! Find out more at: pme.ubc.ca/educationalprograms

Feel the softness of an owl wing; observe the rainbow in the colours of beetles; and, if you are brave enough, smell 20-year-old blubber recovered from our blue whale skeleton! Explore an active research collection used by world-class biodiversity scientists. Best of all, check off topics used within the BC curriculum including plants, evolution, adaptation, journaling, fine arts, habitats, and ecosystems. Schools can take a museum-led program or opt for a self-guided visit. Find lesson plans to use before, during, and after your visit on our Educator Resource Page (beatymuseum.ubc.ca/educator-resources). Spend a full day at the museum by combining a program with a range of daily activities, including documentaries, hands-on activities, and the opportunity to use the museum as an alternative class space. Field trips for the museum are cost-effective, starting at only $8 per student plus tax. The Beaty Biodiversity Museum can accommodate class sizes of 15–30 students per group.

These sessions are led from start to finish by our qualified instructors, who take care of all the technical aspects of the sport, enabling the students to experience a safely managed and enjoyable climbing experience. For teachers who would prefer that their students become more involved in the technical aspects of climbing, we also offer multi-session group instruction packages. Over the course of three or more sessions, your students will learn how to use the equipment correctly, communicate by using the proper commands, tie knots appropriate to climbing, and belay each other safely. We accept morning and afternoon bookings for school groups.

Gulf of Georgia Cannery National Historic Site Built in 1894 in the historic fishing village of Steveston, the Gulf of Georgia Cannery National Historic Site provides a unique heritage setting for school programs. Once nicknamed the “Monster Cannery” for being the largest of its kind, the historic cannery is built on wood pilings over the Fraser River, allowing visitors to ‘experience the history’ of Canada’s west coast fishing industry where it once flourished over 100 years ago. The Cannery’s school programs explore the social, political, and natural history of BC’s fishing industry, and the effects of changes in technology. All programs are interactive, held indoors, and offered in both English and French.

DISCOVER CANADA’S LARGEST PORT The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority’s school program helps students build awareness about the port, the role it plays, and how it connects to their everyday life. The program offers a memorable, interactive and fun learning and field trip experience. Students learn about Canada’s largest and most diversified port through activities such as: • Connecting Your Port City Trivia Challenge – Students answer questions and test their knowledge of the port on touch-screen panels. • Cargo Matching – Students work together as terminal operators and try their hand at loading various cargo types in this ‘get up and go’ activity. • Enviro Quiz – Students discover what makes the Port of Vancouver a sustainable port, while thinking critically about their own environmental stewardship during this fun, object-based guessing game. • Import Story – Students learn how far oranges travel, and how many jobs are connected with our port, while wearing costumes and reading scripts in the ‘journey of an orange.’ • Scavenger Hunt – Students learn more about the port as they search for answers on touch-screen panels.

Vancouver Island Ocean Networks Canada lets you explore the deep sea… without getting wet! Educators, students, and communities are invited to bring engaging hands-on ocean curriculum and Indigenous knowledge into the classroom through accessible technology.

Develop your skills in analysing, understanding, and sharing ocean data and knowledge. On-line lesson plans and activities are linked to ocean data from observing networks along British Columbia’s coast and in the Arctic allowing educators, students, and communities to connect, collaborate, and share discoveries.

We can visit your classroom or community to share local details about your ocean. Ocean Networks Canada has ocean-observing networks in southern Vancouver Island, Campbell River, Bamfield, Port Alberni, and Prince Rupert. All data are freely available through our website for use in your classroom.

To learn more, contact: learning@oceannetworks.ca or visit oceannetworks.ca @Ocean_Networks /OceanNetworksCanada @ocean_networks Ocean Networks Canada (ONC) monitors the west and east coasts of Canada and the Arctic to continuously deliver data in real-time for scientific research, helping communities, governments, and industry make informed decisions about our future. Using cabled observatories that supply continuous power and Internet connectivity to subsea instruments, ONC enables evidence-based decision-making on ocean management, disaster mitigation, and environmental protection.
