This award winning program is the only one of its kind operating in British Columbia. The VWP follows the curriculum guidelines for grades nine and ten, and integrates classroom studies with self-propelled wilderness activities. The VWP provides challenges for students who have a keen interest in the outdoors and are capable of achieving high academic standards. Academic curriculum is integrated with wilderness studies as much as possible. Outdoor activities include backpacking, mountain biking, canoeing and kayaking, ski touring, winter camping, and rock climbing. Students spend approximately 60% of school time in classrooms and 40% in the field.
