Boys in the Wild- A deep adventure challenge for boys 12-14

Dates: July 17-21, 2023

Cost: $600 (includes food)

Calling all boys who long to jump in with both feet and challenge themselves to discover what they are made for..... Enjoy camping, fishing, swimming and learning canoe skills with other boys. We will explore the Mclennan Lake area and do a small circuit. If you would like explore, learn and grow in God’s creation, come and join in the adventure!

 

**We will be running a trip for girls at the same time and location.  As we develop our canoe program, we may need to combine the girls and boys together if we do not have enough people to run them separately.

The Deep Adventure Trips bring faith into the wilderness experience. This will include devotionals, prayer, testimonials and deep conversation around the fire. You do not have to have any faith background to participate or join the Deep Adventure trips.  It is good to hear everyone's story and learn from each other.

You will receive a detailed email with all the information needed for preparing and planning for your trip.  If you have any additional questions, please contact Ang at 306-212-0115 or email ang@yfbc.ca
