Trekkers After School Adventure Camp
We are opening up more spaces in our Trekkers (Age 5-7) After School Adventure Camp!
Monday to Friday our After School Trekkers get picked up from school and head out on a seasonal adventure. Their weekly schedule includes bushcraft, snowshoeing, nature craft, indoor climbing, reading time, and plenty of outdoor play. While the sports change seasonally, the amount of time spent outside is always the same. The children are taught the importance of dressing appropriately for all seasons, playing to enjoy the heat or cold for more than 15 minutes, and to eat well and stay hydrated throughout all activities. All of our programs run off of the Hoodoo Adventurer’s Commandments: Respect The Environment, Respect Each Other, Respect Ourselves.
Full time and part time spaces are available. Full time for 1 month is $245 plus tax, and part time spaces are $165 plus tax. Cancellation requires 30 days notice and first time registration requires 2 months payment in advance.
Currently we are run out of Uplands Elementary, however if you are interested in registering your child and they attend another school please e-mail email@example.com to discuss your child’s registration.
Join us throughout the school year for our day camps. Activities are seasonal and include indoor and outdoor climbing, kayaking, hiking, survival skills, snowshoeing and more. Ages 8 – 12 years, and ages 5 -7 years. 9am-3pm.
After School Climbing Clubs
Hoodoo Adventures offers after school climbing clubs for kids throughout the weekdays. Our clubs are designed to let kids have fun on the wall, while learning about safety, knot tying, belaying, climbing technique and more! Programs are age specific and run for 6 week segments throughout the school year.

Hoodoo Adventures is offering camps for winter and spring breaks over the 2017/2018 school year for our Trekkers (ages 5-7) and Explorers (ages 8-12) with lots of fun, age appropriate programming to get those kids active and outside when school is out for holidays!
Summer is coming up fast!
Enrol your children in a world of adventure this summer with our amazing Adventure Camp programs. Kids get to spend their summer outside learning new hard & soft skills, meeting new friends, keeping cool & learning, and living by our 3 Rs to improve our community.
Is your little one just starting off with their first adventures? Then they belong in our Trekkers program. Ages 5-7 are invited to 1 week of each month this summer with a highly certified, experienced, Hoodoo staff member to guide them through their new journey.
Has your child been a Trekker before, or ready for something more challenging? Then they belong in our Explorers group! Each day of the week brings the Explorers program something different. Ages 8-12, the Explorers get to go mountain biking, kayaking, hiking, and outdoor climbing. With a consistent schedule (ie. biking on Tuesdays), the Explorers can sign up for the days of their choice, or weekly spaces to try it all.
Is your child an avid adventurer? Ready to build their own adventure? Then they are ready for our new Trailblazers program! Trailblazers spend 1 week of the summer planning and executing their own adventure expedition overnight! For more information on this program keep a close eye on our website & social media pages.

We’ve streamlined our registration system to make it easier for parents to register their children for our programming. It’s a little more paperwork right off the bat, but once completed, it will be securely filed and on record so you only need to provide your child’s name to sign up for future programming.
We have a few different downloadable forms that need to be completed to get you started. Some programs, such as overnight trips, may require additional paperwork.
Parents, it is your responsibility to ensure you have read and understand the clothing and equipment needed for your child’s camp. We will send an email to you before camp but, if for some reason you do not receive the email, please click the following link to download our Welcome Letter, Gear List and Schedule.
Please note: If your child arrives without the required equipment, for safety reasons of the child and the group, we reserve the right to refuse entry to camp.

Outdoor Education motivates participants into challenging and demanding situations requiring effort, determination, co-operation and self-reliance. It’s a holistic form of education that can guide individuals academically, physically, emotionally, socially and psychologically; providing opportunities to apply knowledge in real-life situations, and enhancing the relationship between humans and nature.
Outdoor education challenges and compliments the current context of our traditional education system. It provides balance to a system highly focused on testing and examinations by allowing participants to acknowledge and understand the inherent subjectivity that colors many real-life situations. It aims to provide and promote the development of the whole person as a social being in a balanced, integrated fashion as well as provide a rewarding energy outlet.
All of our programs deeply embrace the fundamentals above, and are professionally facilitated in a way that highlights those values.
At Hoodoo Adventure Company, we are passionate about introducing youth to the outdoors and the benefits that playing outside can offer. We believe that in order to create a culture of adventure, you have to start with the kids! For this reason, we have put together a fun selection of adventure activities and camps suitable for all ages that the community and it’s visitors can choose from.
