Kids need to be outside. Science continues to prove it - kids do better when they have time in nature. Which is one of the many reasons we are thrilled to announce our partnership with HeLa Ventures, who are hosting an info session on their Mountain Adventure School on Sunday, March 10th at 3 pm at our West Edmonton location.

Join us as their Program Director and one of  the instructors speak to the various educational and outdoor opportunities they offer, covering the full scope of programs they offer, including Mountain Adventure School, where students in Grades 10-12 can earn Alberta High School Credits while experiencing and learning in the outdoors! They will also be speaking about the gear and equipment needs for the program. And, as always, our Store Guides will also be available to help answer any questions about the types of gear to make a summer camp as enjoyable as possible!
