Indian Arm Canoe Trip – May 30 – June 2, 2016

For our final camp trip of the year we headed over to Indian Arm to canoe the fjord for four days. We had great weather for most of the trip, lots of black flies in the Bishop Creek campsite, seen lots of wildlife, had the wind and tide in our favour and not so much other days, seen many waterfalls, had lots of fun and stored more good memories in our heads. Overall we covered 40+ km’s from our departure point in Deep Cove to Indian River at the end of the Arm.

A very pleasurable trip indeed…

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!!

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”!!

Beautiful day and we got the Streetfront crew out to Lighthouse Park for a fabulous day.

Nothing more than watching kids play in a beautiful setting. Nothing on their minds other than being kids.

A near perfect day.
