APPLIED LEARNING NATURAL CONNECTIONS FOR YOUTH | 2018

Dear Teachers, Officials, and Youth Group Administrators,

We’re excited to announce that UBC's Loon Lake Lodge and Retreat Centre is now offering affordable, adventurous, and adjustable programming for your next overnight school/youth group stay. Depending on your objectives, our programs can help youth learn about the natural environment, move their body, express their creativity, and practice their problem solving skills. 

We refer to our fundamental programming pillars as: Learn, Move, Express, and Solve

All of our programs are UBC staffed and customized within the framework of your curriculum. All program deliverables are tethered to clear learning outcomes and anchored to natural studies, problem solving, creative expression, and physical movement. In real time, teachers and officials can participate as much, or as little, as they choose, but are required to be present and to help customize the mix&match programming ahead of time. 

Costs are $15 per youth/day, and include all materials, instruction, and staffing at a 12:1 ratio. Half-days are available for $8 per youth at the same 12:1. Costs do not include accommodation or meals and a 1 night minimum group stay is required. Minimum group size is 10.

PROMOTION: FOR ANY SCHOOL OR YOUTH GROUP THAT STAY WITH US FROM NOW UNTIL 31-MAY 2018, THE COST ($15/YOUTH/DAY) WILL BE WAIVED IN EXCHANGE FOR DEVELOPMENTAL FEEDBACK*. HUGE SAVINGS.

Our Student Centre lodge offers affordable overnight (dorm-style) accommodation with 3 meals, and rates starting from $75/youth.

*Developmental feedback is what we expect in return. This is the qualitative feedback, from you, that we will use to learn, grow and improve over time. It's an exit survey of sorts. As a place of learning, that means us, too.

Customize your YOUTH group programming from choices, such as: 

Learn  Kids will enjoy portable learning stations, guided hikes, an outdoor survival course, and a variety of fun forest projects!
