Tetrahedron Backpacking Trip – Oct. 14-16, 2015

October 19, 2015 Leave a comment

Streetfront took 11 students on a three-day backpacking trip to Tetrahedron Provincial Park which is located just north of the town of Sechelt on our beautiful Sunshine Coast. This park boasts four wilderness cabins on a network of ex-logging roads and trails.

It has been 15+ years since I backpacked here and I must not wait that long again to return. Next time I will head to the Mt. Steele cabin and explore the higher elevations there.

The youth did very well, many on their first backpacking trip! We were extremely fortunate to have stellar weather with temperatures in the double digits and mild nights!!

The Vancouver School Board and Britannia Community Services Centre in partnership have a carving pavilion on the Britannia campus. One of the first creations to come from this pavilion was a wonderful traditional First Nations canoe. On September 21 Streetfront & Outreach Alternatives joined VSB representatives and First Nations community members at Cates Park in North Vancouver for the blessing of the VSB canoe. It was an honour to be witnesses to the blessing.

With glorious weather Streetfront returned to one of our favourite trails – Mt. Seymour. It was so warm on this October day we didn’t even have to put a jacket on at the Seymour’s “First Pump”!!
