Torres del Paine was voted the fifth most beautiful place in the world by National Geographic. Torres del Paine, and the whole Chilean Patagonia region for that matter, is a dramatic landscape of granite spires and sharp-edged mountain ranges that rise out of plains, emerald green lakes and accented with glaciers.

We will backpack self-guided over 75 km’s of Torres del Paine extensive trail system utilizing campsites and┬árefugios (mountain huts) along the way. We are so excited to have chosen Patagonia as our next trek to expose our youth to the incredible beauty of people and places of this world.

Stayed tune for more details about this trip and our fundraising efforts to make this trip a reality.

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!!
