Inclusive Outdoor Adventure Program
Join an inclusive nature-based summer camp which celebrates individuals of all abilities. Best Coast Adventure Therapy combines outdoor adventure activities with therapeutic processes to reach desired goals for all ages. This small-group summer camp program is designed to meet the various interests, strengths and needs of each participating individual and their family.
Nature has a prominent influence in the therapeutic process as it has been shown to improve emotional, cognitive, behavioural, spiritual and physical well-being. These experiences can lead to positive changes and can benefit all ages with skills of awareness, regulation, coping, coordination and focus while also providing the opportunity to pursue recreational interests.
Programming can include outdoor nature exploration, recreational activities, sports and physical education. Sports such as soccer, tennis, badminton, basketball, hockey, pickleball and archery can take place. Participants can also try water activities such as kayaking, swimming and paddleboarding. Other activities include yoga, meditation/mindfulness, hiking, scavenger hunts, nature walks, group games and more.
